Bishop Bay Hot Springs

Bishop Bay Hot Springs, This set of Springs is the most popular on the North Coast Shoreline. They are at the head of Bishop Bay, off Ursula Channel. Tie up at the good and recently renovated Dock. Follow the short Boardwalk to the bathhouse. If you prefer to moor the best is towards the waterfall, on the south side of the bay.

 

 

There is a crack in the Bedrock a few meters above the high-tide mark, This is the main source of the hot water. The water is odorless, tasteless, with a low content of dissolved minerals, mainly sulphate and sodium. Water flows into a small, covered bath host that holds a concrete block pool of 2.8 x 5.5 meter (8 x 16 ft) concrete block bathhouse just above the high tide line with two soaking pools. It pours out at a rate of approximately 32.4 liters per minute. The temperature of the water at the source is approximately 41.3 degrees Celsius, and the temperature in the bathhouse is approximately 38.8 degrees Celsius.

 

The Overflow water feeds the small tub outside of the bathtubs. Not far from the bathhouse are campsites with old houses.

Two soaking pools are located well over the high tide line in a bathhouse. It pours out at a rate of approximately 32.4 litres per minute. The temperature of the water at the source is approximately 41.3 degrees Celsius, and the temperature in the bathhouse is approximately 38.8 degrees Celsius.

We didn’t know about #bishopbayhotsprings until a day before we sailed out of Seattle. Mike, a harbor mechanic and all-around mariner—who sailed the Passage a decade ago—pushed it hard. “If you have any extra time, it’s worth the extra effort.” We scribbled it down. Weeks later David and Jill (a 70something couple who’ve decided to spend nearly all their remaining silvery years looping and rediscovering the Inside Passage) seconded Mike’s claim. So we went. Way out. Far out. There are two mooring balls and a single dock on the opposite shore, wrapped in firs that pull fog like taffy between their branches. We lowered SPITE (the dinghy) from the bow and sped over, huddling up to three metal fishing boats; their crews were laughing and smoking as we stepped onto the dock and they immediately offered us a beer. We happily accepted and walked up the long wooden dock until it split going into the forest. “Beware of cougar.” Andrew and I exchanged glances, shrugged and kept walking left. We saw the roof of the hot springs (as seen here) and picked up the pace. It’s a sort of cabin-looking sanctuary with a small changing room that opens up to two pools, both about 6’x7’. We thanked the First Nations as we lowered ourselves into the steaming water. It’s perfectly hot-spring hot. In fact, we took a break day the next day and stayed another 5 hours in the water — just to make sure the water was the temp we left it. Bucket list worthy. 🏆 #ursliinsidepassage
