Continuing this summer–visit Twin Islands!!
Explore these private islands and walk in the footsteps of Royalty this summer on cruises aboard the schooner Misty Isles.
Twin Islands off the southeast shore of Cortes is where the Queen and Prince Philip have enjoyed relaxing holidays away from public eyes during visits to Canada. These small islands were once owned by relatives of Prince Philip.
Completely self sustaining, there are amazing gardens, a barn, outbuildings, a swimming compound and an impressive log lodge to tour while you relax, enjoy, and spend a night walking down the same hallway as Royalty once did.
