Queen Charlotte Sound
Queen Charlotte Sound is the body of water that separates Haida Gwaii from Vancouver Island.
Its waters merge with the Hecate Strait to the north, the Pacific Ocean to the west, and Queen Charlotte Strait to the south. It was, along with other “Queen Charlotte” locations, named after Queen Charlotte (1744-1818), wife to King George III of England.1
