At this time of year, the wildflowers will be at their peak, the sea lions growling and territorial displays in full swing at the seabird colonies. Later in the afternoon voyage to Twin Islands to spend the night in a lodge that is fit for royalty. In fact, Queen Elizabeth has stayed in this lodge twice.

On Sunday, check out the wetlands and orchards where forest birds will be in full nesting activity, learn about Twin Islands fascinating history and the off-grid systems that provide services to the island. After lunch board Misty Isles for the trip back to Cortes Bay to take the shuttle to the Cortes Island Museum and then to the 5:50 ferry off of Cortes Island.
