Bute Inlet, British Columbia

50°41'N, 125°49'W

Power & Motoryacht reader Jim Frantz describes this extremely isolated fjord on Canada’s rugged west coast as “breathtakingly beautiful.” And as with most things in nature, that beauty is not without its aegis of danger. Otherworldly wind events known as willawaws whip down from the mountains and swirl through the inlet at speeds up to 85 knots. But if you’re willing to brave it, Bute Inlet offers simply spectacular scenery, and if you’ve got the right boat, this could very well end up being one of the biggest and best adventures you’ll ever undertake aboard.
