This work depicts an episode in the 3 summers that Captain Vancouver charted the Washington, British Columbia and Alaska coasts, during 1792, 1793 and 1794, and is one of over 50 that John has painted. This painting depicts his departure in the very early morning from Boundary Bay, with Point Roberts in the background. Captain Vancouver learned very early that he had to survey the coast in the small boats that he had aboard as the large boats, Discovery and Chatham were too big to go into the majority of inlets and passes. This journey was the longest exploration under sail ever, in the history of the world.
