Lopez History Afloat II

An Afternoon Aboard the Mystic Sea

June 28, 2014

Lopez-aerialThis unique guided history tour by master story-teller and long-time Lopezian, Monte Hughes, will leave Spencer’s Landing at noon on June 28 to circumnavigate Lopez Island, returning around 4:00. We’ll hear Monte’s hilarious stories, many passed down from his grandfather and father, about early days on Lopez.

The Mystic Sea Charter is a great way to see many historic sites from the water and enjoy Lopez Island’s spectacular coast and abundant wildlife.

Monte will be joined by other Lopez historians, including Gary Alexander relating stories of some the earliest Lopez settlers, and Jim Kenagy (the Burke Museum’s mammal guy, emeritus) talking about Lopez Island’s natural history. (Did you know there was a Smithsonian Institution collecting expedition that came to Lopez in 1841?)

Tickets are $120 each, and include hearty snacks and refreshments.

Please reserve your tickets today—space is limited.

The classic 100ft. Mystic Sea is a fast, ocean-rated, Coast Guard certified vessel. She offers a heated, enclosed aft deck, and excellent inside and outside viewing. The comfortable, heated main cabin has booth seating, an excellent sound system, and two restrooms.

Please call us at 360-468-2049 if you have any questions.
