Custom Charters

Charter one of our expedition cruises, on classic crewed yachts, in British Columbia or Alaska.

Offering Two Styles of Family Cruising

With the option of either chartering the whole ship, or joining other guests on a regular trip (max. 10-12 guests), Maple Leaf Adventures will ensure that your family receives the quality adventure you are seeking.

Our family adventure holidays are active family vacations and they are customized to your family’s age, interests, and enjoyments.

Imagine an odyssey by sailing ship or classic tugboat, through one of the planet’s greatest nature reserves: Alaska & British Columbia’s Inside Passage.

You and your family will cruise the coastal islands, go ashore frequently and discover the nature, wildlife, and culture of the coast. View whales up close, hike the rainforest with your engaging naturalist, hear the history of coastal First Nations in an ancient village site with an elder as your guide.

Education and Sail Training Trips

Maple Leaf education and sail training programs provide exceptional experiences:

  • Team-building
  • Tall ship sail training
  • Leadership training
  • Coastal biology
  • Coastal history

For over two decades, Maple Leaf Adventures has taught groups of all ages to sail Maple Leaf and to appreciate the wildlife and culture of the coast.

We have been the official sail training vessel for the youth of the Royal Canadian Sea Cadets since 1987. Our crew are patient and enthusiastic instructors whose students excel.

Conservation Trips

Maple Leaf has also led groups from the Royal British Columbia Museum and the Canadian Museum of Civilization, as well as conservation funders from across North America, on excursions to learn about the coast.

Our staff includes some of the leading scientists, educators and community members on the coast. Between them they have published scores of books and articles, developed many curricula, won many awards, and trained Canada’s youth delegation to the Rio Earth Summit.
