Museum launches summer historic boat tours

The Museum at Campbell River’s Summer Historic Boat Tours is about to set sail for another season

The Museum at Campbell River’s Summer Historic Boat Tours is about to set sail for another season.

The first two trips in the series begin on Sunday, July 10, and then again on Sunday, July 17. On July 10, from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., the series kicks off with a tour through Desolation Sound.  This waterway has to be on everyone’s ‘bucket list,’ though it didn’t impress Captain George Vancouver who said “Our residence here was truly forlorn…” Today Desolation Sound is considered one of the premier cruising destinations on the Northwest Coast.

The trip will swing by Mitlenatch Island, travel through Desolation Sound, then head up Waddington Channel between East and West Rodonda Island.  From there, the boat will pass by Toba Inlet, continue on through Pryce Channel to Sutil Channel, following along the shores of Read and Cortes Island before rounding Cape Mudge and returning to Campbell River. The cost for this tour is $125 and includes on-board historic interpretation and a light picnic lunch.

The trip on July 17, from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., heads  to the waters surrounding beautiful Sonora Island and includes a lunch at the fabulous Dent Island Lodge. This historic tour will progress north from Campbell River through Discovery Passage and the infamous Ripple Rock and continue on through Nodales Channel between Sonora and East Thurlow, heading through Yaculta Rapids before  stopping for lunch at Dent Island Lodge.

Call the Museum at 287-3103 to register.  Different trips are being offered throughout the summer.  Visit: www.crmuseum.ca.
