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.

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.

Sails & Whales

Each year, between Spring and Fall, Humpback Whales return to British Columbia and Alaska from their Pacific breeding grounds to feed. Along with the seasonal arrival of the Humpbacks come a sailor’s chance to dance with summer trade winds! 

Over the Top

Step off the beaten path with Misty Isles as we head for the Northern shores of Cortes Island! Beginning at the Gorge Harbour Marina, we will weave our way past sheer cliffs and narrow sandspits towards Sutil Channel. Enjoy a unique, one way adventure around a part of Cortes Island frequented more by wildlife, than by human beings.

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.
