Scheduled Sailing Trips, Kayaking Tours & Private Charters

We offer a variety of trips. Join one of our scheduled trips or gather your family or friends together for your own private cruise on Misty Isles. A trip with Misty Isles Adventures will be a highlight of your stay on Cortes Island!

Desolation Sound

A place of magnificent beauty, where mountains rise up from the sea in the deeply cut glacial fjords. With warm seas, a mild climate, and vibrant coastal communities, Desolation Sound is a world class boating and sea kayaking Destination. Cruise, swim, and learn about the natural history of the area in what is sure to be a day to remember. 


Mitlenatch Cruise

Mitlenatch Island is a stunning Provincial Nature Park. Boasting the largest seabird colony in the Straight of Georgia, and a continuous progression of blooming wildflowers, visitors are constantly awed by this unique and sensitive ecosystem.



Cassel Lake & Refuge Cove

A short but steep hike leads us to the pristine waters of Cassel Lake, where you can swim or relax and enjoy the surroundings. On our way back to Squirrel Cove we will stop in at the historic water 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 Misty Isles for an evening cruise along the Southwestern shores of Cortes Island, as we observe days end. 
Feel free to bring a late dinner along to enjoy before being treated to a decadent homemade dessert from the Misty Isles Galley. 
Along the way we will make time for a sunset dip in the warm waters, and have you back to the Gorge Harbour Marina as night falls. 


Kayaking Workshop at Hollyhock

Four days of kayak training and exploration on the protected oecan waters surrounding Cortes Island. Learn from experienced local guides, journey by sailboat to remote paddling destinations, and relax on the decks of the Misty Isles as you take it all in.
