Head around the North end of Cortes Island for Teakerne Arm where the spectacular photo op of Cassel Lake falls awaits you. Anchor here with a stern line and shower under the falls or hike up to Cassel Lake for a swim

Day 4
A reprovisioning opportunity awaits you at Refuge Cove, just around the corner from Teakerne Arm. Refuge Cove is a unique coastal co-op with a small store, liquor outlet and some mouth-watering homemade cinnamon buns. Stay here for the night or carry on to the anchorage in Roscoe Bay (check the tides as it shallows out in the entrance). The warm waters of Black Lake await you only a 5 minute walk from the anchorage.
