Explore the West Coast’s food and drink, as well as the nature, culture and lifestyle that informs and inspires it.

Our Cuisine

On every tour, you’ll enjoy exquisite meals prepared daily with fresh ingredients by your on-board chef. Delicious creations will flow from the galley as fresh-baked goods emerge during breaks in the day, as well as breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Each meal is prepared with great thought and precision.

Just because you are on an adventurous expedition does not mean you have to forgo good food. We welcome you aboard to try our West Coast contemporary cuisine.

Trips To Discover Our Vibrant Culinary Scene

The eclectic islands of the Salish Sea look their best from the water. And with our small ship culinary voyages, which focus on BC wine and craft beer respectively, travelling by water has an added appeal. You’re not only steeped in the beauty of this gorgeous archipelago, guided by local experts and experienced guides, but you’ll also learn about the role the marine landscape plays in the area’s food and flavour profiles.

These trips take guests on a journey of the senses, exploring our local cuisine’s flavours, textures, environment, and stories, coupled with the opportunity to get out and walk the fields, beaches and listen to the region’s natural sounds, and meet people and charismatic wildlife.

Culinary Highlights

The delicious creations that flow from these small ship galleys simply not only nourish the body but the soul too.
