Day 1: Friday

Lund, BC, Embarkation.

Lund is located at the tip of the Sunshine Coast and is a gateway to Desolation Sound. Welcome reception and meet the crew of the Pacific Bear 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 straight up from the sea). In the evening, we reach Homfray Lodge, nestled in the remote wilderness of Desolation Sound, where we meet the staff and enjoy our meals prepared by the lodge’s chef.

Day 2: Saturday

Toba Inlet

Cruising 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 along the way, including Grizzly Bears. Return in the afternoon with time to relax on the lodge's expansive dock as the chef prepares your meals.

Kayaking on clear waters

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 allows for rich marine life and excellent chance for salt water 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 paddle boards or join an eco boat tour to explore the nearby waters.
