On Sunday, June 16th, the Cortes Museum is sponsoring an afternoon cruise through Desolation Sound aboard the motor sailor Misty Isles. The outbound leg of this excursion culminates with an enhanced Father’s Day buffet including Roast Beef and Yorkshire Pudding at Okeover Arm’s Laughing Oyster Restaurant—an oceanfront eatery popular for its fine-dining and picturesque setting. Enjoy a sunset cruise back to Cortes Island after dinner. Though this cruise is a great way to celebrate Fathers' Day with Dad, everyone is welcome to join.

Misty Isles departs Cortes Bay at 3:00pm on the 16th, and returns at approximately 10:30pm that evening. If traveling from off-island, you will need to book overnight accommodation on Cortes, as the final ferry departs Cortes at 5:50pm.

The fee for this afternoon cruise is $95 per person. Cost of dinner ($24.95 adults, $19.95 senior/teen, $9.95 under 12) is not included.
