Great area to be and see.
Faster said it well. I would suggest day anchoring and move to a solid anchorage for overnight. Peace of mind trumps anxiety.

|Capt Len||Anchoring on a delta drop off can be tricky. I usually drop bow anchor out as deep as i can and set one or two stern hooks on the drying shelf. by skiff.These have to hold the whole show come big out flow wind so don't think lunch hook. Getting away is just as much work. pay attention to the tide.Lots of bears and it's their turf. Kiingcome is first nations Without an invitation I doubt you'd be welcomed. there's a small float at the head, before the river for their use. Going up rivers can easily cost a prop but worth it. Take sustenance.s and drift back in the sun. I take a couple of tires along for fenders on log booms. Cut drain holes in the side walls so they fill and sink/drain easily. A tug often comes for a boom at 3 am. If they are nice they'll wake you. That's what GPS alarms are for. Anchoring in reasonable depths needs a retrieval line and float because of cables, boom chains etc. And for your next adventure , check out Roaring Hole Rapids.|

I have been part way up the Inlet (July), the winds got really nasty.
Sailing Directions ( a must have) indicates at three anchorages
The bay North of Ahnuhati Point
The head of Knight Inlet (at the mouth of the river)
but they all shoal rapidly and is unsafe in north winds (winter months).
Anchor watch anyone?

Good information above. We went to the head of Toba with Steve in 2010 and had strong winds in the afternoons, but the scenery was definitely worth it. We went part way up Bute but ran out of time to go all the way. Knight looks pretty spectacular on the charts and Google E., have only seen it from Minstrel Is. area so can't offer any first hand info.
Toba In. Impulse III
Milky water of Toba In.
Looking up Bute In. (I think, might be Toba?)
