Princess Louisa Inlet


Visitors come from all over the world to see this magical fjord where warm sun melting the mountain snowpack creates as many as 60 waterfalls cascading down massive granite walls.

There's no need to wonder why it has been called “the most beautiful anchorage in the world”. Traditionally named swiwelat, Princess Louisa Inlet has a charm and scenic beauty that must be seen and experienced. This magnificent granite-walled gorge rises sharply from the water’s edge to heights in excess of 2100 metres (7000 feet). Almost completely enclosed, the Inlet is 300 metres (1000 feet) deep. Don’t miss beautiful Chatterbox Falls at the head of the Inlet as it tumbles 40 metres (120 feet) to kiss the waters below.

Princess Louisa Marine Provincial Park contains a number of campsites, a ranger cabin, picnic shelter, and toilets. For boaters there is a mooring buoy, stern pins, a boat dock, and a dinghy dock. Walking trails provide access to nearby scenic features. Accessible only by boat or plane, Princess Louisa is best seen with experienced guides via charter boat, tour, or floatplane due to dangerous tidal conditions. There are no public roads. Entry is through the Strait of Georgia by way of Jervis Inlet, 90 km (55 mi) north of Skookumchuck Narrows.
