This summer we took our Bayliner Monterey out for a three day, two night trip to Quadra Island. Since we start at Powell River, BC, getting to Desolation Sound and other great Coastal BC anchorages is pretty easy. We found a perfect three day weather window with lots of sun for our trip. We first stopped in Refuge Cove for fuel and to visit the General Store.

From there we went north around Cortes Island to Quadra. After a quick stop at the Heriot Bay resort we headed to Village Bay for the night. We had the anchorage all to ourselves.

The next morning we timed our departure to go through Beezley Passage with slack tide.

We fished a little along the way and then stopped on the northwest side of Quadra for the second night. We chose Small Inlet and it was a wonderful place. We shared it with about eight other boats, but we were all spread out so it still felt private.

We decided to splurge on breakfast the next morning. We timed our departure for slack at Surge Narrows. Once through, we stopped at the April Point Resort. They had dock space available, so we were able to easily stop and walk up to the resort for a nice meal. Then it was back to Lund for fuel and a quick fishing stop at Grants Reef.

A quick trip, but memorable. Go to my blog at http://powellriverbooks.blogspot.com/search/label/Boating if you'd like to see more pictures and details.
