The tight squeeze between Dent Island and Little Dent Island form these narrows that make up part of Canoe Pass Rapids. At peak tides the water flows through like a river. This view’s emphasis is on the quality of light breaking through the clouds. But even at slack tide the water still flows forming great reflecting patterns. Six hours by slow boat from Campbell River, B.C., this area is remote and spectacular!

This small cove on Quadra Island is almost completely drained at low tide. This view is from the shadows of the cedars on the south side looking northward to the bluff basking in sunshine.
