      As I approached Spieden Channel, between San Juan and Spieden islands, the current picked up and a warning bell went off in my head. I knew the Pacific Ocean tides squirt twice daily into and out of Canada's Strait of Georgia through a few half-mile-wide pores like this. Whirlpools and jagged waves jarred me.

The geological development of the Georgia coast is profoundly influenced by the large, but cyclic, storage capacity of the tidal marshlands behind the barrier islands. Powered by the six- to ten-foot tides, nearshore waters are forced in and flushed out of the sounds through the constricted inlets between the barrier islands.

The coast of Georgia is roughly miles and includes 15 barrier islands, four of which (Jekyll, St. Simons, Sea and Tybee) are accessible by car and have become popular resort destinations. The rest of Georgia's islands require transportation by boat and are virtually unspoiled natural escapes.

Coastal Plain is the youngest of Georgia's geologic provinces, making up almost half the state's surface province begins at the fall line, which runs from Augusta through Macon to Columbus, and extends eastward all the way to the modern Georgia coast and southward to the Florida state line.

The Coastal Plain is composed of undeformed sedimentary rock layers whose ages range from the. Cretaceous strata are distributed widely across Queen Charlotte Islands, British Columbia (Haggart,Haggart, ), with major outcrop belts found in the Langara Island to White Point region on the northwest coast, and in the Skidegate Inlet and Cumshewa Inlet areas of the central part of the islands ().Cretaceous strata are inferred to be distributed also in the offshore regions.
