Between east end of Maude Id & adjacent shore is an appearance of a passage called False Passage. In the Narrows the ridge on the Vancouver side seemed decidedly the higher - both were rather sparsely wooded the rocks showing through in several places - Two inlets northward from Deepwater Bay on Valdes Id. ends not examined but ^ [[insertion]] reported to [[/insertion]] penetrate much further than indicated by Br.

It borders on the western side on a mass of the greenish (diorite?) common to the vicinity and the dip seemed nearly perpendicular; the width of the ledge was at least 100 ft exposed & apparently extended much further but covered by vegetation It was of a fine grain with little discoloration and with cold water close up to the beach. The entrance to the SE arm is wider than the charts give it, all estimated it at half a mile or so. It was nearly as wide as the length of the two channel islands. There is a passage at high water over the sand bar connecting Beehive Id. with Halleck Id. a short distance beyond the SW. pt of the latter in Olga Strait a fine cascade falls over a high bluff apparently from a basin in the hills. This is permanent throughout the season.
