Cruise into Desolation Sound

The Cortes Museum invites you to celebrate the solstice in style on the next cruise in their summer tours program.

Participants will relax on the deck of the Misty Isles on an afternoon cruise through Desolation Sound on June 21.

The tour culminates with dinner at the Laughing Oyster restaurant in Okeover Inlet and a sunset trip back to Cortes. The Laughing Oyster is popular amongst boaters for it’s creative, gourmet menu and great ocean views.

Participants will take the ferry from Campbell River to Quadra and then to Cortes Island to meet Misty Isles at Cortes Bay at 3 p.m.

They’ll return to Cortes late in the evening, travelling back through Desolation Sound on the longest day of the year. As there is no ferry off Cortes in the evening, participants will need to book overnight accommodations.

For accommodation and tour information call the museum at (250) 935-6340 or e-mail cimas@twincomm.ca. The fee for the Solstice Dinner Cruise is $85 (which includes GST).

The cost of dinner is not included.

Other upcoming trips on offer by the Cortes Museum include a guided kayaking day trip on July 12th, a circumnavigation of Maurelle Island on July 21 and a tour of Desolation Sound on Aug. 23.
