The Princess Louisa Inlet is a granite-walled gorge cut by an ice-glacier millions of years ago. Massive mountains of the area rise out of the water to heights of 2100 metres (7000 feet). The waters of the inlet rise and fall with the tide, often to depths of 300 metres (1000 feet) and never over 800 metres (0.5 mile). In the spring the melting snow creates impressive waterfalls that cascade down the sides of these massive walls.

In 1919 James F. MacDonald sailed the waters of the inlet. So struck by its beauty was MacDonald that he bought the surrounding areas in 1926 and later preserved it by turning it into an international non-profit society held by an equal number of Canadian and American trustees. The society later turned it over to the Government of the Province of British Columbia who in turn turned it into a provincial park.
