Barkley Sound is divided by three deep channels: Loudoun, Imperial Eagle, and Trevor. Between the northwesterly Loudoun and central Imperial Eagle Channels lies the multitude of islands comprising the Broken Group component of Pacific Rim National Park, and between the Imperial Eagle and the southeasterly Trevor Channel are islands of the Deer Group. The islands vary greatly in both area and in isolation, from the mainland coasts and from each other. This chapter describes the islands in Barkley Sound and their history, together with that of the surrounding area, and the geology, topography, climate, and flora and vegetation of the region.
