"Over the years, Sharon and I have had the opportunity to travel to places where one can get a true glance into the wonder of the ecological balance - the magic - which Mother Nature has provided. It's astonishing how complicated, how interwoven and how wondrous the system is. We're now convinced that this area should be included in "our" list with East Africa and the Galapagos. Besides the splendor of what we saw and did, the crew of the Maple Leaf, and the old girl herself, made us feel welcome, energized and full of wonderful food. It was great."
- Ed and Sharon Shinewald, Winnipeg, Manitoba
"It's hard to express in words just how amazing this trip has been. What a lovely dedicated staff ensuring we had the best time possible - which I certainly did! Thank you for all you hard work. It's been simply wonderful seeing all the wildlife and the beauty of the area. Thanks!"
- Cathy Holowaychuk, Sherwood Park, AB
"Slàinté for an awesome voyage. I would travel anywhere with this crew. Orcas in the moonlight. Orcas chatting. Orcas blowing, tail flapping, fin waving, spyhopping, fishing; humpbacks off the bow; stellar sea lions; dolphins and porpoises; seals; sandhill cranes; sunrises and sunsets; full moon; king fishers; anemones, stars and nudibranchs; grebes, murres, scoters, loons, sanderlings; First Nations spirits; sailing, laughing. Next time, ALASKA!"
- Joan and John McColly, San Diego, California
"Thanks to the enthusiastic and very knowledgeable crew. No matter what the question, an answer could be supplied, if not immediately, then later. The beauty of the forest, the wonderful whales and other marine life, the sailing and bowspritting will be memories that are much cherished."
- Roberta Topping, Gimli, Manitoba
"Another great voyage on the Maple Leaf. After waiting for over 20 years I was able to see my dreams come true - Killer Whales, wild salmon streams and ancient native art…and spending a week with the nicest people around. Thank you."
- David Wallace, Kingston, ON
