Our presenters are curated for their quality, depth, integrity, and alignment with our educational purpose. Since 1982, a distinguished faculty of authors, educators, activists, artists, performers, and practitioners have shared their work at our Cortes Island campus and in Vancouver.
Jonas Fineman brings over two decades of commitment to the sea to the decks of the schooner Misty Isles. From isolated surfing locales, to high seas fisheries and trans-ocean sail crossings, the nautical life and how it shapes human thought and existence has kept Jonas loyal to a life offshore. As a wilderness guide and sea captain, Jonas is honoured to serve as steward and ambassador for the waters and shorelines he holds close to his heart.
He lives on Cortes Island with his wife and two young daughters, where they own and operate Misty Isles Adventures.
