Group Broken Islands, Pacific Rim

Welcome to the Broken Group Islands and Pacific Rim National Park Reserve, which consists of approximately 100 islands and rocks located in Barkley Sound. The outer most islands are fully exposed to the force of the Pacific Ocean. In the lee of the outer islands there are more protected waterways for boating and ocean paddling.

The Broken Group Islands are located in the area off the west coast of Vancouver Island known as the "Graveyard of the Pacific". Heavy wind, rain and fog and strong tidal currents here can be extremely dangerous. Trip preparation in and around the islands is very important. Knowledge of navigation, weather patterns and signs, boat handling and self-reliance are all essential for travel and camping in the area.

Die "Broken Group Islands" im Pacific Rim National Park befinden sich mit ca. 100 Inseln und Felsen im Barkley Sound. Die äußeren Inseln sind voll der Kraft des Pazifischen Ozeans ausgesetzt. Im Windschatten der äußeren Inseln gibt es mehrere geschützte Möglichkeiten zum Bootfahren und Oceanpaddeln.

Die "Broken Group Islands" vor der Westküste von Vancouver Island sind als "Friedhof des Pazifiks" bekannt. Starker Wind, Regen und Nebel und starker Gezeitenwechsel kann hier extrem gefährlich sein.
