The Surf Shack on Hesketh Island is perfect for a small family or a couple and is glamping at its finest. It sits in the trees, 30 feet from the beach, overlooking the water and Yukon Island. This is a remote island property and can only be accessed by boat. We provide water taxi transport with True North Kayak Adventures. Pricing is $70/adult and $40/12 and under, round trip. Kayak and SUP trips are also available as well as rentals.

The space
There's a full size bed in a small loft and a full bed downstairs, with full bedding provided. In the small kitchen, there's a two burner cook stove, dishes, pour-over coffee maker with filters, spices, and dishwashing supplies. There is a wood stove for heat so bring your own firewood.
The cabin can be rented with the larger Smokey Bay Chalet for a bigger group.

Guided kayaking and kayak rentals ($60/day per tandem, $40 per single), stand-up paddleboards ($40) as well as transportation to hiking in the state park is available.
