Eleven lucky Cortesians and guests (some from Denmark) enjoyed a great day on the Misty Isles' Museum sponsored trip around Maurelle Island.

Highlights of the trip included the passage through the tidal rapids at Surge Narrows and Hole in the Wall and the funky museum/gallery in the Octopus Islands.

The finishing touch, however, was near the end of the day, coming home in the late afternoon under sail and sighting the humpback whale that has been in our area for the last week or so.

Thanks to the museum for sponsoring the trip and to Mike and Samantha Moore for making it a memorable day.

Three other Museum sponsored Misty Isles' trips are coming up: a Desolation Sound Day Trip on Aug. 23rd, a 3 Day Cruise Around Sonora Island beginning Sept. 5th and the Mainland Fjord Bear Tour 3 Day Cruise beginning September 20th.
