Surprisingly, 100-foot-high waves have recently been measured off the west coast of Canada. Commencing just south of Vancouver Island and continuing north to the British Columbia–Alaska border, the Canadian government had 16 weather buoys. Some were placed between Vancouver Island and the mainland, others in Hecate Strait, and a number offshore on the west side of Vancouver and Queen Charlotte islands. During a storm on December 10, 1993, the East Dellwood buoy, located 61 nautical miles west of Cape Scott, recorded an extreme wave of 101 feet. The wave occurred at a time when the buoy recorded significant wave heights of 40 feet. Earlier, on December 20, 1991, the south Hecate buoy measured a wave that was 100 feet high. On December 13, 1992, the West Dixon entrance buoy was swamped by an 85-foot-high wave. It seems as though the waters around Vancouver and Queen Charlotte islands would be a good place to avoid during the month of December.27

Thank you. I avoid the outside most of the year! And, I was asking about non-tsunami waves.
