Háthayim/von Donop Marine Park Cruise

Wednesday, August 28, 2024

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 has led to its designation as a 1,277-hectare marine park.

Join Misty Isles for a pilgrimage by sea to 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. Misty Isles parallels the Discovery Islands for a look at a wilderness where no road exists.


Start from Gorge Harbour, 9 a.m. – 4 p.m.
