While sailing from Cortes Island and exploring the nearby waters, you will experience the unique natural surroundings of Desolation Sound. Our trip will last for 5 hours, sailing by Cortes, Marina, and Mitlenatch Islands.
You will experience in practice the principles of sailing and have the opportunity to participate in the handling of a 40-foot sailboat. Although the winds are always different, we will try to sail as much as possible for beauty and sustainability.
A vegetarian lunch, at anchor in a bay, composed of local, high-quality products, and including dessert, will be a highlight. There will be time to immerse yourself in the beauty of the ocean with its unusual deep dark turquoise color, to relax your senses with the calming sound of the waves and be amazed by breathtaking views where mountains rise out of the ocean and small islands delight with their unique landscape. A sight of the ocean wildlife will create unforgettable memories and leave a feeling of gratitude for our oceans.
