About Desolation Sound

Sun Set on Mount Denman in Desolation Sound

Sun Set on Mount Denman in Desolation Sound

Desolation Sound is a place of magnificent beauty where mountains rise up from the sea in this deeply cut glacial fjord area.  Mount Denman dominates the scene towering over a mile high above narrow channels which have depths of over 2000 feet deep.

It is a rugged coast but this is offset by it’s warm ocean temperatures, picturesque anchorages and mild climate. These are some of the reasons why Desolation Sound is one of the most popular yacht cruising grounds in the Pacific Northwest.

In addition to the trips that explore deep into the Sound, we also have some with specific destinations. One trip takes advantage of the afternoon low tides to explore the expansive sandy beaches and reefs of Savary and Hernando Islands while another has the remote island community of Refuge Cove as its destination.

Scheduled Trips

We have scheduled half-day trips departing from Hollyhock on Cortes at 1:30pm, returning at about 6:30pm. Along the way we may see seals, eagles, porpoise or even humpback whales and orca. Check out this orca encounter we had in August 2016!
