Sechart Lodge has new owners this season and has become Broken Islands Lodge. Transport to the lodge lost service via the Frances Barkley this season. The pickup for lodgers has become Secret Beach via the lodge's water taxi. Even after the border opening, the Toquaht were not yet allowing non Canadians to access Secret Beach.

Sad end of an era. I'm grateful to have traveled with her several times. Recently with Frances Barclay and the first time back in 86 after the west coast trail with the real Lady Rose.

Those of you living here on Vancouver Island may have seen this on your news feeds today. For those who didn't, it looks like the company running the service is ramping up operations (at least for August).

Does anyone know if they have revived freight and passenger service for kayakers going to the Broken Group and launching at the lodge? It would be great if they were!

Last I heard (maybe last winter), service to the Broken Group Lodge (newly named) was not happening. I would be quite interested to hear whether that service might be resurrected.
