Description From Owner:
  • After Jacinto Caamano, commander of the Spanish corvette Aranzazu, which was in these waters in 1792.
  • Named by Caamano in 1792. In classical times a large area in southern Italy was called Campania.
  • Emily Carr Inlet - After the Victoria eccentric (1871-1945) who, at her best, painted with genius BC landscapes and Indian scenes.
  • Gil Island - Named by Caamano in 1792. There is no record as to what Gil he intended to honour, but Walbran notes that a Juan Gil was ensign bearer on the Duke of Medina-Sidonia's flagship when the Spanish Armada sailed for England.
  • Gribbell Island - Named in 1867 by Lieutenant (later Captain) D. Pender, RN, after his brother-in-law, the Reverend Francis B. Gribbell.
  • Gribbell lived in Victoria from 1865 to 1875, serving first as rector of St. John's, Victoria, then of St. Paul's, Esquimalt, and finally as principal of the Collegiate School, Victoria.

  • Hawkesbury Island

  • Named by Vancouver after Sir Charles Jenkinson, Baron Hawkesbury, Earl of Liverpool, President of the Board of Trade 1786-1804.



  • After Charles Horetzky (18391900), engineer, explorer, and author. Horetzky played an important part in the early surveys for the CPR between 1872 and 1880. He himself surveyed a northern route, which he fiercely championed, by way of the Peace River to Port Simpson, a short distance north of the modern Prince Rupert. Horetzky explored this creek in 1876.


  • Kiltuish Inlet

  • From the Haisla Indian word meaning 'long and narrow stretch of water leading outward.'


  • Kikiata Inlet

  • From the Coast Tsimshian Indian word meaning 'people of the poles,' referring to the ceremonial staffs borne by chiefs.
