Surrounded by the towering snow-capped Coast Mountains and the lush evergreen slopes of East Redonda Island, Desolation Sound is situated in a truly spectacular setting. With its warm waters and numerous islands, bays, and lagoons, it provides a perfect sea kayak experience. A visit to the unique sea bird nesting colony of Mitlenatch Island, with it's carpets of wild flowers, is an additional highlight of this tour.
"Definitely was a trip of a life time! Such a warm and thoughtful family!
Where else can you luxuriate in music of the Irish, delicacies from the chef,
comfortable accommodations and the hearts and souls of wonderful people! So
creative and warm!"

"A totally enjoyable trip. Food and fellowship superb. The Columbia III is an
incredibly beautiful ship as is the area she plies. The food and service was
marvelous. All were extremely knowledgeable and informative. Great Trip! "
We'll depart Campbell River on May 26, shortly after guests board at 6 pm and head towards Desolation Sound. Throughout our tour the Columbia III is our luxurious floating home. Each day is planned around a kayak excursion and each night we'll anchor in a new cove with a stunning vista. As we paddle we'll view the intertidal marine life and keep our eyes open for marine mammals and sea birds while exploring the nooks and crannies along our way.
"What a fabulous holiday you hosted for us. All our fears 'flew out the door'
the minute we were on board the Columbia III. What a wonderfully warm, gracious
and talented family you all are! The scenery was spectacular - excellent
choices, the boat was perfectly cozy and artistically beautiful, scrumptious
gourmet meals and unbelievable live Celtic music!! What more could anyone ask
for on a holiday?!! Please book us for your next art-adventure!"

"You have enriched my life."
Desolation Sound is known for its many warm and sparkling freshwater lakes, often only a short stroll through the forest from the sea, so refreshing swims as well as paddling are a possibility when the weather is warm.
The Columbia III returns to Campbell River in the early afternoon of May 30th.
"Creative silence, stunning natural beauty, warm camaraderie - all wrapped in
the loving embrace of the family of the Columbia III. It does not get any
