Inside Passage, Victoria / Gulf Islands British Columbia
‘Solitude’ is the word to describe your trip up or down the West Coast Gulf Islands. We’ll visit bays small enough for one vessel and delight in watching deer and bears as they forage in the bay’s headlands. Each day will bring a new adventure. This area is home to 3 resident Orca pods. Our advantage is that we see the sites from the water. Our vessel will tour the more popular sites such as Ladysmith Harbour, Cabbage Island, Montague Provincial Park, Pirates Cove and Tod Inlet. Perhaps we’ll spend a day at Sidney Spit National Park, an ecologically sensitive area that is a winter home to thousands of Arctic birds.
Desolation Sound/Princess Louisa Inlet
50 miles inland through a steep fjord we find Princess Louisa Inlet and Chatterbox Falls. This remote destination is a must for those who have the time to book a longer learning cruise. Further north lies the peace and serenity of Desolation Sound. Crab and prawn traps will be set wherever possible and the catch of the day will become the evening meal for the students to cook. Travel through these mountainous areas and visit unique coastal communities established many years ago by fishermen and native Indians.
