Re: Charter with captain in Vancouver, BC, CA

In Comox a (good) grocery store is a short walk from the marinas. Liquor sales in the same complex. It's a short, inexpensive cab ride if you can't carry/drag it all.

Refuge Cove, Squirrel Cove, and Heriot Bay are reasonable provisioning stops once in Desolation. Moorage is usually plentiful during the day at Refuge, not so much necessarily at the other two.

Coming out of Comox one of our usual 'first stops' is amongst the Copeland Islands, it's an easy daysail from Comox and gets you on the doorstep of Desolation even if you leave later in the day. Crossing the Comox Bar is usually fine as long as you follow the markers, unless very low tide and rough conditions together. If heading for the Copelands pay close attention to reefs and shoals in the Savary Island area.

Alternatively once over the Bar you can head more directly to Cortez Island, typically that's a more 'upwind' trek unless you luck into some SE winds.

Re: Charter with captain in Vancouver, BC, CA

You could anchor in the Copelands (Raggeds to the locals) and skiff to town Or have the hired skipper stand off while you visit the pub and /or Nancys.
