Desolation is beyond Powell River, you'll want either Ports and Passes, or the Canadian Govt volumes 5 and 6 (IIRC) in case you push a bit north of Deso itself.

Gems to visit north of the border:

Sidney Island (watch your depths)
Cowichan Bay
Ganges on Saltspring
Wallace Island park
Pirates Cove
Nanaimo/Newcastle Is
Jedidiah Island
Smuggler Cove
Tribune Bay (in settled/westerly conditions)
Copeland Islands
Squirrel Cove
Von Donop
Gorge Harbour
Malaspina inlet

Provision at Refuge Cove, Squirrel Bay store, Heriot Bay on Quadra, maybe avoid Campbell River - fishermans haven and bait tank hell - plus considerable daily currents in passage

Good luck
