Big Savings on USD Exchange Rate

As of early 2016, the Canadian dollar plummeted to its lowest rate against the US dollar in over a decade.

As a result, Americans booking any of our trips (even our Alaska trips, which are priced in Canadian dollars) immediately save about 30% compared with what the trips used to cost them.

For example, on February 3, 2016, 1 Canadian dollar was worth 71 cents USD. So a trip that is priced at CAD $5,000 is just USD $3550!


Full Ship Charter Pricing

Take your family and friends for a journey through the natural and cultural history of the British Columbia / Alaska coast.

And, you can charter an entire trip with fewer people than a full ship, too!
