Tod Inlet on the Saanich Peninsula south of Brentwood Bay is known for its incomparable protection, as well as the classy shoreside entertainments found at nearby Butchart Gardens, ranking it high on most cruisers’ list of preferred anchorages.
Tranquility is its middle name, the sort of place where there is little need to worry, least of all about weather, and you can focus on projects that don’t require shore power. The inlet’s peace and quiet allows you to sort out things like tricky electrical problems.
But there have been environmental worries here due to many years of industrial pollution. A clean-up project earlier this year in Tod Inlet aimed to lessen those concerns.
