Misty Isles Adventures Sailing Trips & Mothership Kayaking

Sailing and Kayak Tours– Cortes Island & Desolation Sound, BC.

Desolation Sound

Desolation Sound is a place of magnificent beauty, where mountains rise up from the sea in the deeply cut glacial fjords. Warm sea temperatures, picturesque anchorages, and a mild climate make it a world class boating and sea kayaking destination.


Mitlenatch Island

Mitlenatch Island is a stunning protected Provincial Nature Park. It hosts the largest seabird colony in the straight of Georgia, and each spring there is a continuous progression in the blooming of wildflowers. A biologicaly rich and unique ecosystem that is not to be missed. 


Cassel Lake & Refuge Cove

Departing from Squirrel Cove, we head North towards West Redonda Island and the granite walls of Teakerne Arm. With the anchor set near Cassel Falls we disembark for a short, Arbutus lined hike to the warm waters of Cassel Lake for a swim. On our return, we stop in at the historic boat access community of Refuge Cove.

Whaletown Explorer

Explore the waters around Marina Island and Sutil Channel on the west side of Cortes. This area is often frequented by Humpback whales, feeding in the summer months.


Evening on the Water

Join us for an evening cruise along the Southwestern shores of Cortes Island. Feel free to bring a late dinner along to enjoy before being treated to a decadent homemade dessert.
Along the way we will make time for a sunset dip in the warm waters.
