Description From Owner:
  • Colquitz from the Straits Salish word meaning 'waterfall.'
  • Portage Inlet - For centuries there was an Indian trail across the strip of land between Thetis Cove and Portage Inlet.
  • After the naval base was founded at Esquimalt, Royal Navy men wanting to visit Fort Victoria would sometimes follow the Indian example and portage their ships' boats across here when the sea was running high in the Strait of Juan de Fuca.
  • With permission from G.P.V and Helen B. Akrigg 1997 British Columbia Place Names. UBC Press.
