Historic Boat Tour Circumnavigation of Cortes Island with a visit to Teakerne Arm

August 20, 2023 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm

The Museum at Campbell River offers summer historic boat tours in partnership with Campbell River Whale Watching and Adventure Tours. Each trip explores the history of the region from the comfort of one of their boats that includes both indoor and outdoor seating areas, and an on-board washroom. As well as an experienced Captain, there is an on-board naturalist who is constantly on the lookout for wildlife to point out, and a Museum Guide to share historic points of interest. Whaletown on Cortes Island received its name from a whaling station located there in the late 1800s. Hear about the impacts of this station and find out about historic whaling practices in the region. While we circumnavigate the Island you will also learn about some of the other stories this unique island has to tell including historic Squirrel Cove and beautiful Von Donop Provincial Marine Park.
