Desolation Sound!

This years big Summer Cruise was our biggest ever. We kicked it off by heading to Bedwell Harbor (Poets Cove) for a few nights of relaxation and afternoons in the spa. After that, we headed on over to Vancouver for a great dinner and night on the town. From there, we cruised north to Secrete cove (a great little destination) and another great dinner at the Upper Deck restaurant. The next day we continued north to the most beautiful cruising grounds in the world, Desolation Sound! Squirrel Cove, Refuge Cove, Von Donop Inlet, Gorge Inlet, prideaux haven, Rebecca Spit and many more. It was a beautiful week of anchoring out, quiet marina's and relaxation. We topped it off with the most friendly and beautiful resort, Dent Island. After that, it was time to start back home. Beach Gardens Resort, then Ganges Marina. A big thanks to all our friends and customers who joined us and did such a great job learning and enjoying their boats.

Some customer comments about our cruise to Desolation Sound:

“A million thanks couldn't be enough. You are amazing for putting this all together. We are beyond lucky to have you to work and play with.” – Bob Hoelzen, 34C Silverton

“Thanks so much for taking the time and energy to plan such a wonderful cruise to Desolation Sound. What a great experience for those of us that had never been there! It was fabulous. Can’t wait to go again.” – Bill and Vicki Forssell, 330 Silverton

We just can't tell you how much we enjoyed the Desolation Sound Cruise. You did an incredible job planning this one. What beautiful scenery, and the harbors we visited. We loved them all, but of course Dent Island Marina was our favorite.
We learned so much on this trip about boating. We became a much better team operating the boat - docking--a piece of cake, and anchoring (always been aprehensive about this one)--totally doable. Most importantly we learned how necessary securing your dinghy is when you're at anchor. Oh, we also learned the real purpose of the anchor light.
The best part of the trip, though, was making new friends and getting together with old ones. The Blackfish group is the BEST!
We just wanted to thank you for all your hard work and patience. It was a trip we'll never forget. - Jack & Donna Benson
