Schedule arrivals and departures to coincide with slack water in Gillard Passage, and approach from the southeast. The 1:20,000 inset on Chart 3543 shows the lodge location including the dock. As the inset shows, a shoal area 0.9 meter deep at zero tide is on the east side of the entry. Stay mid-channel. It is best to make reservations, even in the less-busy weeks of the season. Reservations are just about essential during high season.
