Accommodation options

We have two lodging options set aside for our Adult Whale Campers: rustic cabins at Castalia Marsh Retreat and modern cottages at Harrington Cove.
These options are customizable so that folks can share a cabin, have a place to themselves, or opt to book their own accommodations for their time at Whale Camp.
(For example: a private stay in a modern cottage at Harrington Cove for the week would be $1300 CAD+tax, whereas a more rustic cabin at Castalia Marsh Retreat shared with a couple other people for the week would be between $200-$600 CAD+tax per person).
