Sea Kayaking Adventures Aboard Misty Isles
Presented by: Mike Moore
Learn to kayak safely and comfortably as you navigate the protected ocean surrounding Cortes Island. Glide gently on the surface of the water, passing miles of pristine coastline, with seals, bald eagles, and seabirds for company. Each morning, depart Hollyhock and embark upon the 43-foot Misty Isles schooner as your mothership, with kayaks and lunch onboard. Explore the spectacular waters around Cortes Island and Desolation Sound, as you drift past mountains that seem to shoot up out of the sea. Cruise by historic sites as your guide’s vivid stories bring the region’s history to life. Enjoy the deep quiet of nature and the peace of your own thoughts as you paddle through narrow channels. Hungry from adventuring, return to Hollyhock in time for dinner.
This workshop is held at three different times, in June, July and September. Each month brings its own special qualities.
June - The spring flowers on the offshore islets in June are spectacular. While the birds and wildlife are bursting with activity, the passages are quiet as the summer yachts have not yet arrived.
July - Along with the sunny days comes the opportunity to kayak and swim in the warm waters of Desolation Sound. The summer season is in full swing with many boaters out on the water enjoying the majestic scenery.
