A guided tour is the perfect way to explore the breathtaking scenery in Desolation Sound and the Discovery Islands.

Lying just to the east of Cortes Island, Desolation Sound Marine Provincial Park is one of the most spectacular boating destinations on the Pacific coastline. The natural shelter provided by the park’s many inlets, islets, coves and bays make it an ideal location to explore. The temperature of the water in Desolation Sound can reach 20 degrees Celsius in the summertime, making it the warmest stretch of Pacific Ocean north of Mexico!

These Cortes Island-based tour operators arrange for great ways to get out on the water and explore.
