Re: The most secluded remote boating spots in the U.S.

I got to thinking about this thread, and there's one thing that immediately comes to mind. If you want to go to a very secluded location, one where you never see another boat or other people, there's a good reason no one will be at that location - it's not worth going to for one reason or another. It will be either too hot, too cold, bug infested, dangerous shoals, crazy tides, etc..., take your pick. Most of the desirable locations were discovered years ago, and that's why people go there - not because they're undesirable.

Think about it,

Gary

You are absolutely correct. Quatsino Sound is a terrible place - do not go there.

Barkley Sound is even worse.

Re: The most secluded remote boating spots in the U.S.

But Gary, that's the very reason we go to those locations. BECAUSE nobody is there for one or many reasons. I'd rather put up with too much heat, cold, bugs distance or any other excuse people use to not go than have a bunch of @#$#$%# noisy, thoughtless, arrogant,people there. They can have the easy spots close to town ,, with starbucks, west marine or whatever other umbilical cord they need close at hand. I'll take the serenity of nature over that any day even if I do have to put out a little effort for it.

...Think about it !!!!!

And it is too late to tell everyone how disgusting the Broughtons are. The passes that you have transit to get there are extremely dangerous, especially at slack tide.

Awesome spot and one of the world's amazing fjords. Just don't go in July/August, because you likely won't be alone.

You can go up some rivers on the lower Eastern Shore of the Chesapeake and be very very lonely. The bugs carries off everyone else

Re: The most secluded remote boating spots in the U.S.

I don't know guys, I met lots and lots of great people on my trip down the ICW last year. And, while Boot Key Harbor was packed to capacity, I only came across one crazy lady that I damned near threw into the canal. She was drunk out of her mind, stoned on some drugs, and completely whacko! She tried to rip the wires out of my amp and keyboard, but fortunately, I grabbed her arms, moved her out off the stage, and the marina security guys took her away. The rest of the night was a blast and everyone had a ball. Can't say enough good things about all the wonderful people I've met cruising. I'd love to see them all again someday. If you're running across nasty people while cruising, then I guess you cruise in a different area than I do for sure.
