Strait of Georgia

For boaters, the Strait of Georgia is not to be trifled with. Pleasure craft cross the 15- to 20-mile-wide strait all the time, but locals know better than to go out when the wind is blowing. Try not to overlook Jedediah Island and Lasqueti Island on your way across. Several fine marinas dot the Vancouver Island side of the strait from Schooner Cove up to Campbell River. The Sunshine Coast lines the mainland side of the strait. leading north into Desolation Sound.
