This water access only property is located in Sechelt Inlet on Cawley Point near Storm Bay at the entrance to Narrows Inlet.
Sechelt Inlet is one of the principal inlets of the BC Coast and the third of such inlets north from the 49th parallel, the first of which is Burrard Inlet, Vancouver's harbour. The Inlet is significant in that it almost makes an island of what is instead the Sechelt Peninsula, whose isthmus is at the town of Sechelt at the head of the Inlet. The isthmus is less than 1.2 km (0.75 miles) in distance.
Another significant thing about Sechelt Inlet is the famous saltwater rapid (Sechelt Rapids) as it enters Skookumchuck Narrows, which rages with near waterfall-like fury during tide changes. Other fjords on the BC Coast have similar rapids, also called skookumchucks (strong waters in the Chinook Jargon, the old coastal trade language), which like Sechelt Inlet are caused by the typical shallows near the mouth of a fjord as the volume of water inside the fjord's depths tries to pour out to, or in from, the more open waters beyond. In Sechelt Inlet's case, the Skookumchuck Narrows are exactly as its name describes - narrow - forcing the water to an even greater torrent than is typical elsewhere.
Sechelt Inlet has two side-inlets, Salmon Inlet, which begins at a small power dam at the mouth of the Clowhom River and is about 23 km in length, and Narrows Inlet, which starts at the mouth of the Tzoonie River and includes the Tzoonie Narrows. The latter is about 15 km (9.3 miles) in length and emerges on the main inlet just inside the inner mouth of the Skookumchuck Narrows. Egmont is located 6 km (3.6 miles) off Highway 101 at the northern end of the Sechelt Peninsula on the Sunshine Coast of BC. The Sunshine Coast is accessible from the Lower Mainland only by boat or airplane. Travellers aboard BC Ferries leave Horseshoe Bay in West Vancouver for the 45 minute ride to Langdale on the Sechelt Peninsula. Highway 101 links Langdale with Egmont and the ferry terminal at nearby Earls Cove.
Egmont is the trailhead for Skookumchuck Provincial Park and features two modern marinas offering moorage and supplies for yachts and floatplanes. Boat Charters are available in Egmont and guided tours can be arranged to the many natural attractions in the area. Egmont is named after the HMS Egmont, which served under Rear-Admiral Sir John Jervis at the Battle of St. Vincent on 14th February 1797.
Charter boats will take you through Skookumchuck Narrows, but be prepared, as the water can reach speeds of up to 14 knots in spring and summer! The waters near the Skookumchuk Rapids are a favourite haunt for experienced divers and extreme kayakers.
Jervis Inlet, just north of Sechelt Inlet, leads inland from Malaspina Strait to a number of sounds and inlets, including Hotham Sound, Agamemnon Channel, Sechelt Inlet, Prince of Wales Reach, Princess Royal Reach, and into Queens Reach. Leading off Queens Reach is Princess Louisa Inlet, at the head of which is Princess Louisa Provincial Park and the stunning Chatterbox Falls. Trips to the falls are available out of nearby Egmont.
Sechelt Inlet is a convenient and popular departure point for cruises up Jervis Inlet and Queens Reach to Princess Louisa Inlet and the Chatterbox Falls, one of the most splendid trips you can take in BC. Voted most scenic natural anchorage in the world, Princess Louisa Marine Provincial Park has a charm and scenic beauty that must be seen and experienced to be fully appreciated, a tranquil paradise tucked into the Coast Mountains on the BC mainland.
