Seascape Waterfront Resort

  1. Seascape Waterfront Resort – new contact information: 250-895-1643;;; docks and cabins refurbished; large octagon building with beautiful interior finishes serves well for rendezvous and flotillas.

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.
