The boat took off from Painted Boat Marina at 6am while we were sleeping. Six hours later we arrived at Princess Louisa Inlet. We were amazed to see the most beautiful view of snow covered mountain tops everywhere. We had to wait for slack tide to be able to pass through the small inlet entrance due to small rapids. The inlet was narrow with 7,000-foot walls of mountains on each side and the waters of the inlet sank to 1,000 feet in depth.
The inlet was about six miles long ending at Chatterbox Falls, a shocking 120 foot wall of gushing water. We were surrounded by over 60 smaller waterfalls, starting at the top of the mountains and traveling down. The James Bruce Falls, is the ninth tallest waterfall in the world and emppties into the inlet via Chatterbox Falls. The area can only be reached by seaplane or boat, it was absolutely breathtaking.
We spent the next couple of days hiking, kayaking, jet skiing and exploring. Garren loved wakeskating near the waterfalls in the glassy inlet. We really enjoyed being anchored out in the middle of nowhere, and never wanted to leave.
