Kulleet Bay

Looking west into Kulleet Bay. The land around the bay is an indian reserve. There are no facilities for small craft.

Moore Hill

Looking eastwards from Kulleet Bay towards Thetis Island. Although the "peak" of Moore Hill shows as a nice little dot on the chart, it is not so obvious in real life!

Mexicana Hill

Mexicana Hill on Valdez Island, viewed over Miami Islet. Again, the chart shows the peak of the hill as a dot, but in real life, Mexicana is just a low broad mound. A look at the contour lines on the chart should lead us to suspect this.

Valdez Cliffs

Thetis Island

A view of Thetis Island from the north. As suggested by the contour lines on the chart, the peaks of Moore Hill and Burchill Hill are quite prominent when viewed from this direction.

Danger Reef
