Ron, these are really nice images! For a moment, I thought that I had mistakenly logged on to my favourite photography forum.

We're going to be making our first major trip since buying the boat shortly, and a slow trip to Pender Harbour and back struck us as a heck of an idea. After looking at your images, a dinghy ride to Gunboat Bay would be worthwhile.

It's not my fault they named a movie after our boat

For a slow trip to Pender Harbour and back, there's a few spots in Howe Sound that are worthwhile, of course Smuggler Cove, Buccaneer Bay are also worth a look. But you're also pretty close to Jedidiah Island and that's just simply a very special place. Have a look here if you haven't already:

Cruising: Jedidiah Island

btw often the trip back south is easier doing it via Nanaimo - cross over from Secret or Jedidiah/Lasqueti and cross back again to the mainland a day or so later - Nanaimo's Newcastle Island is another must-see.

Enjoy your trip!

Great photos Ron, looks like you had a wonderful summer cruise. Very sorry we didn't cross paths this year. Your stay at Sturt Bay was better than ours, a long uncomfortable night where the wind shifted (0200 of course) from SE to NW and our anchor chain found a big rock to get wrapped up on which growled and worried us all night. We just got home last night, I'll try to post a few pics soon.

Thanks John... we're sorry too, not to have been able to hook up. We tried calling on multiple occasions but did not get close enough, I guess. No serendipity this year!

We ALWAYS go into the Texada Boat Club at Sturt Bay.. really reasonable rates, great wharfinger team there and a pretty nice, welcoming set up. Tricky business anchoring floats in 90 feet of water! We also have friends who live there so stop to visit (and borrow a vehicle to swim the quarries.)

Looking forward to your report!
