Delight as day dawns over the islands of DeCourcy, Discovery, and D'Arcy, or hike on over towards hide-away havens and heritage homesteads on isolated islets. Scan the ocean for orcas and octopi, oysters and otters while behind you raucous ravens raise a racket. The beautiful islands in the Salish Sea are explored in an enchanting manner and can be enjoyed whether you are in a cabin cradled in a cove, or on a boat that basks in the bay, a local or a visitor to this Pacific paradise.
