Trip Plan: On to Grenville Channel

Bishop Bay to East Inlet heading up Grenville Channel:  56 miles

Grenville Channel is the second of the long "inside passage" channels and is a fjord much like many of our inside passage routes.  A Fjord is defined as:  a long, narrow inlet with steep sides or cliffs, created in a valley carved by glacial activity.  I always think of them as a coastal mountain range that has been filled in by the sea.  Often the side walls extend down to great depths with no beach.  I look forward to seeing these magnificent reaches and stretches.

East inlet is a protected anchorage that is half-way up Grenville Channel.  Should be a great place to spend the night before heading on to Prince Rupert.
