If you go Princess Louisa Inlet is best suited for expert paddlers, though water taxis from Egmont, Pender Harbour, Sechelt, Powell River or Lund can reduce the length and difficulty of getting there. Two campsites are located in Princess Louisa Inlet Provincial Park – one at Chatterbox Falls at the head of the inlet and one 2 km farther down. Another amenity is a dock for visiting boaters. Tours are available, either by relaxed luxury mini-cruiseships or faster Zodiacs. Princess Louisa is reached through Jervis Inlet, which is the gateway to Desolation Sound and separated from Sechelt Inlet by the famed Skookumchuck Narrows (cover photo). Thus Princess Louisa and Jervis Inlet lend themselves to expedition-length explorations of the wider region, and several weeks would only scratch the surface.
