The Rapids and Johnstone Strait

Traveling the Inside Passage in British Columbia, Canada by boat? This presentation makes getting through Johnstone Strait and the Rapids easy and stress-free. In this episode of the “Mastering the Inside Passage” series, Sam Landsman and Laura Domela from Slowboat.com share the lessons of numerous crossings – leading flotillas up the Inside Passage from Washington through BC up to SE Alaska.

Cruising in the Pacific Northwest is characterized by “gates,” or challenging bodies of water that must be traversed to get to the next cruising area. Slowboat is helping to demystify each of these gates. In this segment, Laura Domela and Sam Landsman discuss how to safely transit Yuculta Rapids, Gillard Passage, Dent Rapids, and Johnstone Strait.
