On the northwestern reaches of Cortes Island, a slender saltwater inlet projects itself from Sutil Channel into a biodiverse wilderness known as Háthayim. For centuries, human beings have sought shelter and sustenance alongside the steep sided fjords, old growth forests, and tidal estuaries. An army of high functioning ecosystems within Ha’thayim have led to its designation as a 1,277-hectare marine park.
Join Misty Isles for a pilgrimage by sea to engage in one of the most revered marine parks of the inside passage. Bruce Ellingsen will be your guide and historian and will lend narrative and interpretation while Misty Isles parallels the Discovery Islands for a look at a wilderness where no road exists.
Start from Mansons Landing, 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.
