This package assembles the two Desolation Sound mapsheets into one useful bundle. It includes:
#232 Desolation Sound: This mapsheet covers the immediate waters around Desolation Sound, and so is perfect for launches from Lund or Okeover Inlet into the provincial park attractions such as Copeland and Curme islands. It also covers the surrounding area for wider trips into the region, including most of Cortes Island and attractions such as Manson Landing, Marina Island and Gorge Harbour, making it ideal for regional excursions from the Sunshine Coast launches. The southern extent includes beautiful Savary Island.
#234 North Desolation: This is for extended trips into the Desolation Sound region, and includes all of the Redonda Islands, Toba Inlet, north Cortes Island and the gateway channels to locations farther afield (Pryce Channel and Calm Channel). It is a necessity for anyone extending their trip into Desolation Sound north beyond the park borders.
About the Wild Coast map series: In 2019, Wild Coast Publishing began embarking on an ambitious program to provide an unbroken series of mapsheets covering the entire BC coastline. The series begins with mapsheet #201 Brooks Peninsula and extends in order down the outer Vancouver Island and up the southern BC coast then finally north through the Inside Passage. You can view the currently available list of mapsheets here. The maps are designed for paddlers and boaters, right down to the size -- a handy 24x18", slightly smaller than a traditional street map and so easy to manage when on the water on your kayak or within the confines of a boat. Use it as a "deck topper" for easy visualization as you travel on the water, use it around the campfire or your anchorage at night to plan your next day's route, and at home for research when your journey is still in the dream stage.
