Princess Louisa Inlet (swiwelát) and Chatterbox Falls
Visitors come from all over the world to see this magical fjord where as many as 60 waterfalls cascade down massive granite walls. No wonder it has been called "the most beautiful anchorage in the world". Princess Louisa Inlet (traditionally named swiwelát) has a charm and scenic beauty that must be seen and experienced. This magnificent granite-walled gorge rises sharply from the water's edge to heights in excess of 2100 metres (7000 ft). Almost completely enclosed, the Inlet is 300 metres (1000 ft) deep. Warm sun melting the mountain snow pack creates more than 60 waterfalls that cascade down precipitous walls to mingle with the waters below. Beautiful Chatterbox Falls at the head of the Inlet tumbles 40 metres (120 feet).
This spectacular park contains a number of campsites, a ranger cabin, picnic shelter and toilets. For boaters there is a mooring buoy, stern pins, a boat dock and a dinghy dock. Walking trails provide access to nearby scenic features. Accessible only by boat or plane, Princess Louisa is best seen with experienced guides via charter boat, tour or floatplane due to dangerous tidal conditions. There are no public roads. Entry is through the Strait of Georgia by way of Jervis Inlet, 90 km (55 mi) north of Skookumchuck Narrows.
