Mothership Kayak Tours

With our kayaks loaded onboard the Misty Isles, mothership trips are an excellent way to cover a lot of ground in comfort, yet still have time to get the intimate look that is only possible from a kayak at this picturesque area. Our mothership trips are custom planned for you to suit your schedule and interests. If you have a small group of family or friends that are ready for adventure, give us a call.

Private Custom Charters

Getting your family or friends together for your own private cruise on Misty Isles can be a highlight of your stay on Cortes Island! Whether heading into the incredible scenery of Desolation Sound, a wildlife cruise to Mitlenatch Island or stopping for a picnic on a remote, secluded island, the choice of destination is yours.

Multi Day Sailing Charters

For groups and families who want to explore farther a field than is possible on a day trip, we have several overnight tour options available. Because these trips feature shore side accommodations, we can do these trips with group sizes of up to 12 guests. Toba Inlet & Discovery Islands Tidal Rapids are just two of the many options. We are happy to plan a trip with you.
