Exploration, a sail and a highlight of your Gulf Islands experience.

Board the 35' William Trip Jr. designed Coronado sloop in picturesque Retreat Cove, Galiano Island or at Fernwood dock on Saltspring Island for the perfect 4 hour adventure. Seasoned skipper and blue water sailor Captain George Harris will treat you to an amazing afternoon, sunset or overnight(s) cruise.  You may choose the most popular cruise destinations ... Walker's Hook is Saltspring's most secluded and spactacular beach...and Wallace Island, virtually uninhabited but steeped in a magical history.  Some of the original buildings remain, but this gem of an island became a Marine Park 2 decades ago. The only way to reach Walker's Hook and Wallace Island is by private vessel. You could even decide to set up a tent for the night and be picked up the following day! Or snorkel/swim in the protected waters of Princess Bay and Conover Cove. If you board our yacht on Saltspring we can also take you to the caves at Retreat Cove.

Your sailboat is one of the best ways to get up close to the incredibly rich diversity of sea life found just off these wondrous shores. You choose to board the yacht at Retreat Cove, Galiano or Fernwood dock, Saltspring Island  So whether it is 4 hours or more, you will see a part of the Gulf Islands few visitors experience.

For day trips we recommend no more than 6 passengers or for overnight adventures 4 is a comfortable number. Your captain has navigated vessels from the Arctic Circle to the clear waters of the Grenadines Islands... with stories to match these passages. Let us help you make this trip the best!
