I would not be comfortable doing any of the routes without an engine. Even the Van Isle 360 boats power from Campbell River through Seymour to Deepwater Bay.
The suggested passage through the Yucaltas is designed to get you all the way through to Dent and involves bucking a flood and using counter currents. You could take a slack or an ebb go into the marina at Big Bay or anchor wait from a slack or ebb at Gillard. Then go through and wait at either the Dent Island Lodge or Mermaid Bay before going through Dent.
