Refuge Cove is the main source of supply in Desolation Sound, located near the northwest end of the Strait of Georgia in British Columbia. It serves as a convenient pick up and drop off location for those coming to or leaving from boats via seaplane in what many regard as the ultimate destination for cruising in the Pacific Northwest. Refuge Cove remains the quintessential ‘Up Coast’ marina; the type that has mostly disappeared from the PNW and it oozes character. There are a number of boaters who spend one to two months in this area year after year and some have been doing it for 30 years or more. Refuge Cove is run as a co-op by the members of the small community of permanent residents. There is no lodging available. In general, people fly there to join boats cruising in the area.
