JUNE – Mountains & Waterfalls

Beyond Desolation Sound: Toba Inlet – 8 hour Zodiac Boat Tour    $205 pp

Imagine steep mountains, glacial green water, and cascading waterfalls!

This trip differs from the others, in that we get a chance to go beyond the popular Desolation Sound, to experience something a little more remote, a little more stunning and a little bit wilder. Traveling up Homfray Channel, into Toba Inlet (as the winds and weather allow) and completing a full circumnavigation of East Redonda Island, we get a sense of the magnitude of this coastline, the depth of the history here, and leaves us wishing we could just keep exploring.
