Coastal Nostalgia – Princess Louisa Inlet, BC

Then 1916) and Now (2021)

Jan and I have boated twice to Princess Louisa Marine Park, and the surrounding scenery has not changed in over 100 years.  Remotely beautiful, one is surrounded by 40+ waterfalls.

The famous Malibu Lodge/Club – overlooking Malibu Rapids at the entrance to Princess Louisa Inlet and Marine Park – opened in July 1941, but its operations were suspended until the end of World War II in 1945. From that point until 1950, the facility was open as a premium resort. Visitors included John Wayne, Senator John F. Kennedy, Barbara Stanwyck, Bing Crosby, and Bob Hope.
