Dent, Yuculta, Green; names of rapids that you need to pay attention to.This is where you need to know about current tables as well as tide tables.The whirlpools; the sinkers in two of these rapids can get up to thirty feet across and the rapids can run 8 knots.We run at 8 knots, so you know that if we get swept up the rapids we are NOT in control and we are NOT getting out.We have managed to navigate four rapids in a single day, which is incredible as these are best run at close to high or low slacks in the tide.This area is a little wonky as this is where the tides meet on the backside of Vancouver Island.They are extremely confused seas and tides leading to an even more confused navigator.

It is late in the day as we motor into the open waters of Calm Channel.We are looking for moorage.The guidebooks for boating have been out-dated and the moorage that we had anticipated is no longer accepting transient boats.What to do?Whiterock passage catches our eye.It advises against usage without local knowledge, but the shadows are creeping down the mountains and we are getting anxious to get settled.

Whiterock passage opens up into Surge Narrows, beside Read Island next door to Quadra Island.A person needs to listen to names; like Surge Narrows, Blind Bay, and Mosquito Creek.Have you ever camped beside Mosquito Creek?I bet you know better now.
