|Located on Okeover Inlet - at the Gateway to Desolation Sound - Powell River Sea Kayak Ltd., along with Desolation Resort and the Laughing Oyster Restaurant invite you to join us for a wonderful experience of guided kayaking, cozy accommodation and great food - all for one great price!
In an effort to promote this wonderful area, Powell River Sea Kayak Ltd., Desolation Resort and the Laughing Oyster Restaurant joined forces and formed: Destination Okeover.
The goal was clear: to combine 3 high quality and complimentary businesses into one complete package of fine food, relaxing accommodation, and guided sea kayaking into Desolation Sound Marine Park. By doing so, guests could simply make one reservation and their vacation was planned! In addition, guests could feel confident that they were booking a quality experience!
Mission accomplished! Since it's inception in 2001, Destination Okeover has welcomed hundreds of guests. Okeover Inlet's peaceful beauty and the fact that Okeover is the entry way into Desolation Sound Marine Park are both attributes that attract many - but let's look at the individual businesses:
Enjoy a unique west coast adventure at Desolation Sound Resort. Listed in the "Northwest Best Places" guide book, the resort is located at the upper end of the Sunshine Coast of British Columbia. It's a 30 minute drive north of Powell River and a 10 minute drive from Lund where Highway 101 ends and the wilderness begins.
Spread over seven wooded acres, Desolation Sound Resort offers ten spacious, fully furnished oceanfront chalets for your vacation enjoyment. Overlooking Okeover Inlet, these chalets are perched on a hillside surrounded by tall cedars and firs.
Some of our chalets have private hot tubs on the decks. What better way to relax after a day of kayaking! Each of the units is constructed with native wood and local craftsmen have lent their talents to creating custom designs with a west coast flair. Many of the chalets reflects these talents in the intricate wood designs inlaid on the walls and floors. These chalets are of varying sizes and some can accommodate up to 8 persons.
