    Note: Trips must be booked and paid for in advance by giftee for gift certificate to be accepted. 

  • Big Savings on USD Exchange Rate

    Currently, the Canadian dollar is substantially lower than the US dollar.

    As a result, when you convert the price of our trips to USD, it works out to about 20 to 25% less. (Even our Alaska trips, which are priced in Canadian dollars.) 

    For example, on June 24, 2020 a trip priced at CAD $5,000 would be about USD $3,665!

    • On catamaran Cascadia: Is for up to 24 guests (22 in Haida Gwaii). ** Inquire for full ship charter rates.
    • On the schooner Maple Leaf: Is for up to 8 guests*. The fare is the equivalent of the fare for 8 guests, plus the sustainability fee and GST. *Contact us about a possible additional guest or two on the Maple Leaf only.

    2. Family-Friends Trip with Individual Bookings

    • Includes a deadline after which other people can book onto the trip if it is not fully booked by the friends and family members.
    • Does not exclusively reserve the trip, unless the trip is filled up by the friends/ family members.
    • Each party books and pays individually. If they cancel, the regular booking refund policy applies. Their place would be filled either by other friends/family members in the group or by other people who would like to book on the trip. This is governed by the exclusive booking deadline.

  • Solo Travellers Have Options

    For decades, many solo travellers have enjoyed their trips and come back to experience more of the coast with us. Why?

    For decades, many solo travellers have enjoyed their trips and come back to experience more of the coast with us. Why?

    It’s Experiential

    Every minute on a trip can be a great experience, as we are travelling with just a small number of guests on beautiful ships, full of character. Our expert guides, mariners and crew are always available for conversation or to share their skills — it’s like having a number of other build-in solo travellers already on the trip with you. And because our trips are taken by people who want to really experience the nature and culture of an area, there is a great camaraderie that builds, between all guests.

    Flexible Booking Options

    Maple Leaf (schooner): There is no single supplement. Instead, you share a sleeping area with one other person of the same sex. But this trip is not about being in your bed — it’s about watching wildlife on deck, sharing a great meal in the galley, going ashore, touring in the small boats, and so on.

     Swell (tugboat): Book one of her cozy cabins to yourself for less than the price for two people in it, and for 150% of the price of a shared single.

    Cascadia (catamaran): When you book, let us know you’re if you’re interested in sharing a cabin with another person of the same sex and if we can, we’ll match you up with a roommate. If you book a cabin to yourself, it’s the same 50% single supplement. If you share, we refund the single supplement.
