Historic Boat Tour Exploring the Redonda Islands & Waddington Channel
August 5 @ 7:30 am - 12:30 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. Heather Harbord, author of Desolation Sound, referred to West Redonda as the “Social Centre of the Sound.” West Redonda had two settlements – Refuge Cove and Redonda Bay. Of the two, Refuge Cove has always been bigger, and today is still a hive of activity, at least in the summer months, with its charming and eclectic community. East and West Redonda are known for their topography, towering peaks and the deepest waters of the passage. Some areas contain the warmest ocean water on the west coast of North America.
