Desolation Sound is a large and famous marine provincial park on the north end of the Sunshine Coast (north of Powell River, B.C.). The area is famous for its warm water and incredible sea life. The north end of the Sunshine Coast is a magical place. There is so much to do. We did a 4-day trip in the area. This is just one small sampling of the sea-kayaking possibilities.
We started in Okeover Inlet, paddled up Lancelot Inlet and camped. Next day we paddled to Mink Island and camped. Day 3 we paddled to Roscoe Bay. There's an official camp there and you can hike to a nice lake. Last day we paddled all the way out. The map has our route drawn in.
We rented kayaks: a double (K and 7 yr old) and a triple (2 adults + 3 yr old in the middle hatch). There was a place on Okeover Inlet that rented. Just search the web; there are lots of rental places in Desolation Sound.
