This cruise starts in Kulleet Bay, proceeds north-eastward towards Valdes Island, then northwest in Pylades Channel to Ruxton Pass, eventually ending in North Cove on Thetis Island.

Looking west into Kulleet Bay. The land around the bay is an indian reserve. There are no facilities for small craft.
Looking eastwards from Kulleet Bay towards Thetis Island. Although the "peak" of Moore Hill shows as a nice little dot on the chart, it is not so obvious in real life!
Mexicana Hill on Valdez Island, viewed over Miami Islet. Again, the chart shows the peak of the hill as a dot, but in real life, Mexicana is just a low broad mound. A look at the contour lines on the chart should lead us to suspect this.

Approaching Ruxton Pass
West side of De Courcey Island
A view of Thetis Island from the north. As suggested by the contour lines on the chart, the peaks of Moore Hill and Burchill Hill are quite prominent when viewed from this direction.
