'Round Maurelle Island
There are only certain tides in the summer that will allow Misty Isles to circumnavigate historic Maurelle Island. Surge Narrow’s Beazley Pass and the Hole In The Wall are famous for their tidal rapids, but we will be able to work our way through them on this day at the neutral period near slack water. Later in the afternoon the incoming tide will thunder through at almost 10 knots! Eagles, seals and sea-lions are often seen fishing in these fast, nutrient rich waters.
Along the way we will pass the Octopus Islands and some fascinating historic places, from pictographs and old village sites, to a 1920s store that still stands to this day. This is a well timed opportunity for an informed and beautiful journey through a truly majestic part of the coast.
