Sails & Whales

Each year, between Spring and Fall, Humpback Whales return to British Columbia and Alaska from their Pacific breeding grounds to feed. The nutrient rich waters surrounding Cortes and the Discovery Islands have provided these gentle giants with marine sustenance for thousands of years. Along with the seasonal arrival of the Humpbacks come a sailor’s chance to dance with summer trade winds! Join Misty Isles for a foray into the marine food chain aboard our traditionally rigged schooner, as we seek to engage with the natural world at its finest.

TRIP DETAILS: Departs from and returns to Smelt Bay Provincial Park. Trip includes a beach visit and swimming opportunity. Private washroom onboard. Coffee, tea and cookies from the Galley await!
