Gorge Harbour, Cortes Island

Nestled at the entrance to Desolation Sound in the unceeded territories of the Klahoose, Tla’amin and Homalco Nations, Cortes Island lies a the doorstep of the breathtaking fjords that penetrate British Columbia’s wild coast. The wilderness spirit of the island is evident at every turn; bald eagles roost in the tufts of the cedar trees, resident wolves roam its dense forests, and marine mammals are abundant in the surrounding waters year-round.
