Johnstone Strait is the main route through the maze of islands between, Vancouver Island and the mainland coasts of British Columbia and Washington State. Captain George Vancouver first charted this area in 1792 and named the strait in honour of James Johnstone, the Master of the accompanying survey ship the HMS Chatham.
