Sechelt Inlet is an incredible inland sea, which most visitors to the Sunshine Coast completely miss. Just 10 minutes from the village of Sechelt, there is a feeling of quiet solitude, with abundant wildlife - eagles, great blue herons, kingfisher, otters, seals, and recently, a pod of 75 dolphins. The inlet is great for kayaking due to its protection from wind and waves by the surrounding mountains. Porpoise Bay has an excellent campsite and there are several wonderful B&B's in Sandy Hook as well as over on the west side of the Inlet.
