Sailing the Maple Leaf is a lot of fun, but it’s also great to get out on the water and experience her moving by. You’re sitting still on the water in a zodiac in front of her, and you watch her approach.

Amazingly those giant sails use the wind and send all 95 tons of ship forward, with just the ripple of her wake for sound. It’s an awesome experience.
