Camping options: Owl 1 9sites, Owl 2 6-8sites, Cedar 6sites
Head East out of Telegraph Cove towards Bauza Islet, cross Johnstone Strait from Bauza, heading towards the southwest tip Hanson Island. Paddle into the Plumper Islands and through the Blowhole, continuing along on the north side of Hanson towards Pool Point where you’ll cross Blackfish Sound towards the middle of Swanson Island. Plan for a lunch break in one of the small coves on Swanson’s southwest side. Paddle northwest to Bold Head and explore the tiny islets here as you make your way on to Owl Island.

Crossing Blackfish Sound

May 26, Owl camp to Insect Island, 16km
Camping options: Insect camp, Tracey 8sites

Paddle northwards past Canoe Islet, Sedge, Start, Hudson and Marsden Islands. You are sea kayaking the Broughton Archipelago now. These islands are all worthy of exploring and can make a nice stop for lunch. From Marsden, head northeast into Misty Passage and continue until Insect Island appears. You’ll notice a very distinct white shell beach. Beautiful Islands abound in this part of the archipelago, with intricate passages and colourful intertidal marine life. Whitesided dolphins and porpoises are also commonly spotted here.
The landing at Insect Island is made up of brilliant midden (white shell) beach. Midden beaches are made up from the bones and skeletons of crustaceans, mollusks and mammals that have been harvested and consumed over the years by the First Nations people who once lived here. (Insect Island is part of the Dzawada’enuxw First Nation’s unceded territory.) Each meter of midden equates to approximately one century habitation by the Dzawada’enuxw people. There is limited beach space here so be sure to consolidate kayaks to provide space for others. Set up your campsite and kitchen in the forest. Fresh water is not available here. Latrine is the intertidal zone. Insect Island is one of the nicer campsites in the area to just hang out and read a book and enjoy the natural beauty of the area. The south side of the island is known for its great sunsets.

Camping options: Pearl 9sites, Crease S 6sites
