Uninhabited islands with marine wilderness campsites and front country campsites near Sechelt. Easily accessible wilderness. Calm inlet waters. World class diving for ship wrecks and marine life. Waterfalls. Wildlife (seals, bears and eagles - oh my!).

Set off from Sechelt, a small seaside community on the Sunshine Coast - about two hours from Vancouver which is accessed by ferry or float plane.

As soon as you start paddling from the harbour in Sechelt, the calm waters are so clear that starfish and other marine life are easily visible beneath the surface near the shoreline.

Rocky beaches covered in barnacles are easily reached at beginning level intervals and for those more inclined, paddle routes lasting two days to six are possible.

The scenery is rugged, with dense forests being broken up by creeks cascading down the mountains of this fjord.

Out of the 60 marine campsites, Kunechin Point is the best. The arbutus and mossy covered rocky point sits in perfect view of a seal inhabited twin islands.
