Landing Comments:

Easy, rock/pebble/cobble only at mid water levels. Most or all beaches flood at high water making landing difficult on angular bedrock. Boulders present at low water. Exposed E aspect. Larger W island of group. Another high water landing beach reported on S side but unverified, unlikely viable at Springs.

Camp Comments:

Exposed, attractive small tent sites in open just above shoreline requiring difficult access up steep rocks. Challenging place to load, unload stow boats. At least 2 parties have tried to camp here but have given up.

Other Comments:

View, wild flowers. See Qwiquallaaq/Boat Bay Conservancy .
