Desolation Sound and Discovery Islands
Squirrel Cove Trading Co. Ltd. has plans to extend their dock, work to begin in 2019; the Cove Restaurant is now licensed and open for dinner from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m., hours vary off-season. The Flying Squirrel Take-out is now housed inside the Cove Restaurant and is open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Take-out can be enjoyed on the restaurant deck.
In 2018, Discovery Harbour Marina is adding finger floats to “I” dock which were previously used as side-tie.
Cell phone service appears to be expanded in this area. We are not sure this is all good news since many go to Desolation Sound to get away civilization, but we noticed a marked difference in voice and data service for both Verizon and AT&T users in Desolation Sound. We even had coverage in Prideaux Haven.
