Slowboat Tips and Activities

Explore the shoreline by dinghy. With a high powered dinghy, explore Watts Narrows when the current is running!

Entry/Exit Hazards

The only entrance is through Watts Narrows, a narrow, shallow, dog-leg passage connecting Baker Inlet to Grenville Channel that must be transited near slack. Slack occurs about the time of high and low water in Prince Rupert. Near slack, Watts Narrows is easily navigated by boats to perhaps 70 feet. Looking out from the pilothouse, we could see the bottom leading down from the shoreline, but depths mid-channel never dipped below 35 feet. Perhaps the hardest part is finding the entrance, which is invisible until you’re practically on top of it.
