Trip Plan: Exploring Fitz Hugh Sound

Penrose Island to Oliver Cove - Seems like a shame to spend only a week here

The greater Fitz Hugh Sound area.  The American Tug owners really like to cruise this area.  Many have chosen to spend months exploring, and then return the following year.  I have heard glowing reports and have seen several presentations on cruising this area from our extended AT family.  Time to check it out for myself.

The destinations have interesting names like: Shearwater, Namu, Ocean Falls, Rivers Inlet, Bella Bella, Bella Coola, Hakai Passage.  I wonder who Bella was?  Bella is Italian for "Beautiful" and the pictures do look good.  Time to find out.   Check back in early June and I will have a full report.  Be sure to subscribe (it is over on the right column).
