Boats enter Cortes Bay through a short channel, passing south of the marker beacon which marks a drying reef.
The bay is well-protected and provides a fine refuge if the weather kicks-up on the Straits. A hiking trail leads from the outstation to the top of the bluff.
The decks at Cortes are outstanding -- the perfect place for a summer greenbox.
