Now comes the opportunity for the pleasure-seeker to
see, from the deck of a comfortable and luxuriouslv
appointed steamship, the many beauties of this natural
playground of the Pacific.
The steamships Princess Norah and Princess Maquinna built especially for this service, sail resularlv
from Victoria during June, July and August for Wes't
Coast ports. Numerous ports are visited by these
steamships in their five-hundred-mile journey to Port
Alice in Quatsino Sound. Both vessels were built with

mines, a cable station
The West Coast may well be called the Canadian
Norway, with its rugged and deeply indented coast line,
and mountainous, heavily-timbered slopes that drop
sheer into the water. Little villages are found along the
fiord-like bays and inlets, devoted to fishing and lumbering; Indian settlements, too, and interesting totem
poles with curious Indian folklore. It is a country
without railways, automobiles, moving pictures or electric
light; to all intents and purposes the same as a hundred
years ago, with the exception of a few modern fishing
plants situated at isolated and widely-separated ports
along the coast.
Historical interest in the West Coast centres on
Nootka Sound, which was first visited by Capt. James
Cook in 1778, who made Friendly Cove, at the entrance
to the Sound, his headquarters for further exploration.
Lieutenant John Meares visited Nootka in 1788 with
two ships, constructing a small trading post. He and his
men were later captured and imprisoned by Spaniards,
which action nearly precipitated war between England
and Spain; but after numerous diplomatic exchanges an
agreement was reached called the Nootka Convention,
by the terms of which Spain formally acknowledged
England's sovereignty in  Northwest America.
Captain George Vancouver was sent out by the
British Government in 1792 to Nootka to take formal
possession of the territory, and the record of his meeting with the Spanish Commander, Bodega y Quadra,
will be found in the book of Captain Vancouver's
voyages. Two sentences from his journal with reference
to the West Coast are of particular interest: "To describe
the beauties of the region will, on some future occasion,
be a very grateful task to the pen of a skilful penegyrist.
The serenity of the climate, the innumerable pleasing
landscapes and the abundant fertility that unassisted
Nature puts forth, require only to be nourished by the
industry of man, with villages, mansions, cottages and
other buildings, to render it the most lovely country
that can be imagined."
(Read from the bottom up)
QUATSINO SOUND—The first call is at Quatsino Cannery,
near the entrance on the south side; then Koprino Harbour on
the opposite side of the Sound, and a few miles further on
Quatsino Village. Steamship then proceeds down the southeast
arm to Port Alice, the terminus of the voyage and the site of a
large pulp mill. A few miles before reaching Port Alice is
Jeune Landing, from which point an excellent road leads inland
about fifteen miles to the mine of the Coast Copper Company.
After a stay of several hours at Port Alice, the homeward voyage
commences; but before leaving the Sound a call is sometimes
made at Holberg, at the extreme end of the northwest arm,
I  which is entered through a beautiful narrow tidal channel.
KYUQUOT SOUND—The first port of call is Cacbelot, a former
whaling station, now converted into a fish reducing plant—one
of the largest on the coast. Calls are also occasionally made at
Chamiss Bay, and at the Indian village of Kyuquot. There being
no wharf at the latter port, landing is made by boat. Passing a
maze of rocky islands at the entrance of the Sound, the ship now
rounds Cape Cook, off which point may be seen Solander Island,
the home of a large colony of sea lions.
ESPERANZA INLET—This large Inlet was also discovered
and named by Capt. Cook in 1778. Several calls are made in
the Inlet at the fish reducing plants at Ceepeecee, McBride Bay,
Espinosa and Queen's Cove, before passing again into the open
sea en route to Kyuquot Sound.
NOOTKA SOUND—This Sound, one of the largest and most
beautiful on the West Coast, was discovered by Capt. James
Cook in 1778, who landed at Friendly Cove, a charming half-
moon of sand and gravel beach, situated at the entrance to the
Sound on the north side, named by the Indians' "Yukquot" or
"Yucuat," derived from "Yukwitt," to blow with wind; "Aht,"
people or village, meaning "a village exposed to the wind,"
probably the most interesting historical port on the West Coast
of North America. Capt. Cook first named the Sound King
George's Sound in 1778, this being later changed to Nootka.
He was hospitably received by Chief Maquinna of the Nootka
Indians. Friendly Cove was again visited in 1788 by Lieut. John
Meares, in the ship "Felice," who erected a small trading post
and built in the same year the first vessel to be built on the
West Coast of America. A small Roman Catholic Church now
stands on the spot where this vessel was built. It was at
Friendly Cove that Capt. George Vancouver met Bodega y
Quadra, the Spanish Commander, and formally took possession
of the lands for Great Britain in August, 1792. A few miles
further up the Sound is Nootka Cannery, where, after a short
stop, the steamship proceeds through a beautiful narrow passage
through the mountains, called Tahsis Canal, to Esperanza Inlet.
/CLAYOQUOT SOUND—Three hours' steaming from Ucluelet
brings the steamship into Clayoquot Sound, a name taken from
the Indian word, "another" or "different." Calls are first made
at Tofino; then at Clayoquot on Stubbs Island, two miles
across the Sound. Clayoquot is beautifully situated on a long
halfmoon white sand beach, running out to a long spit, and a
pleasant walk of about a mile through the woods brings one
to the open ocean on the other side of the island. Clayoquot is
the headquarters for quite a large fishing fleet, and is an ideal
spot for a vacation. On leaving Clayoquot, the steamship calls
at the Roman Catholic Indian Mission School at Kakawis and
several fishing plants in Matilda Creek before proceeding to
/UCLUELET—Ucluelet Harbour is a well-sheltered Inlet about
five miles long, situated at the west end of Barkley Sound,
protected from the Pacific swell by several outlying islands. It is
the base of a large fishing fleet and also has several fine lakes
and small rivers in the vicinity, which offer good sport to the
angler, and some delightful gardens, owned and operated by
Mr. George Fraser, a horticulturalist, who has made a specialty
of ornamental shrubs. Ucluelet proper lies on the west side of
the harbour, while directly across on the east side is Port Weeks.
Ucluelet wharf on the west side is at the end of the now partially
completed Ucluelet-Long Beach-Tofino road, which, when completed, will be an extension of the Vancouver Island main
highway, giving access to the famous Long Beach, twelve miles
long and  one-quarter wide, lying between  Ucluelet  and  Tofino,
.probably one of the finest ocean beaches in North America.
ALBERNI CANAL—From Bamfield the steamship proceeds
along the Alberni Canal, the largest "fiord" of the West Coast,
some thirty miles long, terminating at Port Alberni. The old
town of Alberni niay be seen on the right, just before reaching
Port Alberni. Port Alberni is the terminus of the Alberni branch
of the Esquimalt & Nanaimo Railway, running westward from
Parksville Junction. It is also the headquarters of the Barkley
Sound herring fleet, and an important fish-packing centre and
lumbering town, being situated close to one of the largest areas
of standing timber on Vancouver Island. The steamship calls at
numerous fishing centres on both sides of Barkley Sound, including Sarita Bay, McCallum Bay, Green Cove, etc., where large
quantities of herring are salted and packed for export, and
pilchard reduced to fish oil and meal.
fBAMFIELD — Shortly after leaving Clo-oose the steamship
passes Cape Beale, marking the entrance to Barkley Sound, and
arrives at Bamfield, an Imperial Government cable station, being
the terminus of the "All-Red" cable to Australia and New
Zealand via Fanning Island. Bamfield was named after W. G.
Banfield, who came to the West Coast on the H.M.S. "Constance"
in 1846 and was later appointed Indian Agent. The longest
portion of the "All-Red" cable lies' between Bamfield and Fanning
Island—3,540 miles. The cable was first successfully laid in 1902,
but with the rapidly increasing business of later years it was
found necessary to lay an additional cable recently. Bamfield is
also the lifeboat service station for the West Coast.
PORT RENFREW AND CLO-OOSE—Port Renfrew is situated
I at the head of San Juan Inlet and at the mouth of the San Juan
I and  Gordon  Rivers, a small but beautifully situated town, the
J principal industries being logging and salmon canning.   There is
I  also   excellent   trout   and   salmon   fishing   in   season,   and   good
opportunities for shooting bear, deer, goose, duck or brant. About
an   hour   after  leaving   Port   Renfrew,  Carmanah   lighthouse  is
passed,  and  in   another  hour  steamship  arrives  at  Clo-oose,  a
small village situated at one end of a beautiful white sand beach.
Landing is only possible by small boats, through heavy surf.
VICTORIA, B. C—Starting from Victoria, the beautiful Capital
City of British Columbia, in the evening, steamship proceeds
through the Strait of Juan de Fuca, with snow-capped Olympic
Mountains of Northern Washington on the left, arriving at Port
Renfrew, the first port of call, in the early morning hours.
