One of the dream cruising destination for all boaters! Just north of Cape Caution, there are several dozen beautiful and serene anchorages offering a variety of attractions. Beaches, scenery and wildlife are in there to enjoy for those willing to travel north. This presentation will include aerial and water level image images of the entire area plus several images of the wildlife of Fitz Hugh Sound such as humpback whales, bears and birdlife.
Award-winning author William Kelly has written about boating for over 30 years with his stories on cruising and navigating the coast from San Francisco to Seward, Alaska appearing in several yachting publications in Canada and the United States.
He and his wife, Anne Vipond are the authors of the best-selling guidebook Best Anchorages of the Inside Passage which now covers anchorages from the Gulf Islands and Victoria to Fitz Hugh Sound and Bella Bella on the central coast.
The new second edition of their book won the honorable mention award from the Society of American Travel Writers in the guidebook category when it was published. In addition to anchorages from Desolation Sound and Broughton Archipelago, the book covers all the difficult passes that lead to the best anchorages of the B.C. coast.
