Day 1: Friday

 Arrive on your own into Lund, BC, gateway to Desolation Sound.
Note: Scheduled airport transfers are offered complimentary from Powell River Airport for guests flying (35 min.) from Vancouver  

Lund, BC, Embarkation.  

 Meet the crew in Lund and enjoy a welcome reception as we set off from the quaint village of Lund. Cruising north into Desolation Sound, we will pass Desolation Sound Provincial Marine Park, a haven for boaters and kayakers with its calm waters and sheltered anchorages. As we leave the boaters behind, we cruise into Homfray Channel, one of the deepest in North American and flanked by towering peaks, including the majestic Mount Denman (1920 m, 6299 ft). In the evening, we reach Homfray Lodge, nestled in the remote wilderness of Desolation Sound, where we meet the staff and settle in before the Evening of Stories and Songs begins. 

 Dinner and overnight at Homfray Lodge

Day 2: Saturday

Cruise today as we travel north into remote Toba Inlet, a deep fjord with steep peaks, glacier green water, and spectacular waterfalls. Sit back and enjoy the ever-changing scenery as we explore this remote fjord with its green waters. If we are lucky, we may spot bears or other interesting wildlife along the way. Return in the afternoon with time to relax on the lodge's expansive dock as the chef prepares your meals.  

Breakfast, lunch, dinner, and overnight at Homfray Lodge

Day 3: Sunday

Today is a day at leisure to enjoy Homfray Lodge. The waters here are especially warm and with little nearby development, the lodge is located in a true wilderness paradise. The meetings of the tides and warm summers allow for rich marine life and an excellent chance for saltwater swimming. Oysters grow in abundance around the lodge and curious Harbour Seals are often seen swimming just off the dock. Water temperatures can exceed 22°C (75°F) making the dock a natural hub of activity and place to sit back and relax. This peaceful setting allows you to enjoy the breathtaking scenery, vibrant marine life, and the lodge's activities such as kayaks, stand up paddleboards or join an eco-boat tour to explore the nearby waters.
