Situated on the edge of the wild,with dense forests, sun-soaked shoreline, and the spellbinding waters of Desolation Sound, Cortes Island is perfectly located for adventure.

Cortes Island is as rich in community as it is in wilderness.  At local community gatherings in Mansons Landing, Whaletown, and Squirrel Cove, artisans sell their wares and create connections. Foodies can choose from comfort food to mouth-watering West Coast fusion restaurants that rank among the best on the coast.  And local festivals offer a chance for visitors to interact with the colour and flair that make our island remarkable.

Whether you want to explore on your own or with the services of a trusted operator, we’d love to show you the best of Cortes!
