Seymour Narrows

Seymour Narrows is a strait located in British Columbia, Canada, that connects the Strait of Georgia to Discovery Passage. It lies between Quadra Island and Vancouver Island, and is approximately 8 miles long and 1.5 miles wide at its narrowest point. The strait is renowned for its strong tidal currents, which can reach up to 16 knots.

The area has a long history of human habitation, with the indigenous peoples of the region having lived along the shorelines of the strait for thousands of years. The first European to explore the area was Spanish explorer José María Narváez in 1791. In the early 19th century, the strait was used by fur traders and whalers to access the region's abundant resources.

In 1958, the Canadian government undertook a project to improve navigation in the strait. This involved the construction of a rock-filled causeway to reduce the current flow and make the passage safer for large vessels. The project was completed in 1960 and resulted in a significant reduction of the tidal current, making navigation much easier.

The area is also known for its spectacular scenery. The strait is home to a variety of wildlife, including sea lions, seals, porpoises, and whales. In addition, the area is popular with kayakers, who take advantage of the strong currents to explore the area.

Seymour Narrows is an important part of Canadian history and a popular tourist destination. It is also an important navigational route for large vessels travelling between Vancouver and Alaska.
