The waves of August

It is said that August is the most beautiful month to be on the water

It is said that August is the most beautiful month to be on the water.

The Museum at Campbell River has historic boat tours every Sunday in August and one trip to Desolation Sound planned for September. These excursions are a wonderful way to learn the fascinating history of the Discovery Islands.

The Sunday trips in August include exploring the waters around Sonora Island (with lunch at Dent Island Lodge), Yorke Island (famed for its role during the Second World War), Hardwicke Island and the Thurlows (with lunch at Blind Channel). The cost for the trips vary from $140 to $160, including lunch and interpretive guide.
