I booked the Desolation Sound lunch cruise as a treat for my elderly Mother and Aunt who were visiting from Ontario. The day of the cruise started out socked in and rainy. We left at low tide and the ramp down to the dock was quite steep and a little scary but Ted came up to give us a hand and ensured everyone made it to the boat safely.
The boat has a beautifully maintained wood cabin that we stayed in for the better part of the ride out. Ted and Joanie filled us in on the history of the area and points of interest as we made our way out to the sound. They patiently answered all of our questions and made us feel right at home.
By lunch time, the rain had stopped and the weather started to clear. We enjoyed an excellent lunch of local spot prawns with locally grown salad fixings. Everyone cleaned their plates.
When we pulled anchor to head back to Lund, the sun was out and the clouds were clearing. We were able to make our way to the top deck of the boat for the ride home so everyone was able to see the sound in all of it's natural beauty after all.
Gracious hosts, a beautiful boat, an excellent lunch and all it one of the most stunning settings you will ever see. What more can you ask for? I highly recommend.
