The sparkling waters are home to incredible marine life, oneness with nature is everywhere, offering stunning coastal cruising, whether by kayak or by yacht. Wildlife abounds, making hiking and beachcombing enjoyable anytime of the year. When you arrive on Cortes Island - wilderness, peace and privacy will surround you.
