General News · 9th May 2018
Sunday, May 20 – Sails & Whales – NEW CRUISE with Misty Isles!
Departs at 10:30 a.m. from Manson's Landing public dock and heads out to explore the waters around Marina Island and Sutil Channel on the west side of Cortes Island. Humpback whales in summertime often frequent this area and you will seek them out with friendlier intentions than the schooner Kate of the Dawson Whaling Company that was based in Whaletown in the 1860s. You will see First Nations pictographs, stop for a low tide walk on a sandy beach, with an opportunity to raise sail before returning to Manson's Landing dock at about 4:30 p.m. for a ferry shuttle. This cruise runs in conjunction with the SEAFEST in Gorge Harbour Marina on Saturday. Please call the Museum at 250-935-6340 to book your place.
