Wife and I did that 10 years ago.
A 6hp Johnson OB on an 18' freight canoe 41" wide and 17" deep. Went to Quadra Is first and stayed a night at the Harroit Hotel. Very old and charming. If you like old.
Then took the ferry to Cortes Is. Launched the big canoe and went cruising around the island. Going back we did an outing on Main Lake .. in the middle of Quadra Is. Nice quiet lake and a little bit remote depending on who you are.

A car top boat is very inexpensive on the ferry but a small car and boat won't break the bank either. The Whaler is a good safe small boat.

Looks like the first part of the vid was coming out of Gorge Bay.
