We spent time in the Surge Narrows area, the dogleg/Goepel Passage, Octopus Islands, Hole In The Wall & Francisco Island. It's a gorgeous area. Discovery Islands Lodge is a fantastic place - a lodge that is run by kayakers, for kayakers. You guys out there have an incredible resource in places like that and I hope you appreciate it.
Don't forget the dangerous currents, huge tides, killer whirlpools, tug & barge traffic, rain & more rain, big winds, all the beaches are rocky, no campspots, no pubs, no parking, power boats zooming thru the play spots, dangerous kelp, fish farms, more fish farms, clearcuts, yachties everywhere, etc. So y'all should just go to the Broken Group
