Posted on


Our 2025 Schedule Has Landed—Plus Exciting Special Offers for Early Bookings

As the demand for unique, expedition-style trips grows among thoughtful travelers, Maple Leaf Adventures is thrilled to announce the launch of our 2025 itineraries.

Our boutique-sized expedition cruises offer an intimate and immersive way to explore the breathtaking natural wonders of the Pacific Northwest’s hidden coast.

Whether you dream of feeling small among the fjords of the Great Bear Rainforest, navigating the rich natural and cultural history of Haida Gwaii with local elders, or embarking on a journey of glacial proportions in Alaska, our 2025 schedule promises outstanding small group adventures crafted and led by passionate locals.

What to Expect in 2025

Our 2025 itineraries continue to build on our legacy of offering unparalleled experiences on the pristine coasts of British Columbia and Alaska. 

Each trip is limited to small groups of 8, 12, or 24 guests, ensuring personalized attention and a truly unique experience.

Our expert guides are adept at tailoring each voyage to take full advantage of the weather, tides, and wildlife behavior, making every journey with us one-of-a-kind.

Solo Traveller Specials

The spirit of adventure should be accessible to everyone, including those who choose to travel solo. In fact, more than a third of Maple Leaf guests choose to travel solo, as do many aboard Swell and Cascadia.

That’s why we’re excited to continue our Solo Traveller Special into 2025, where we waive the single supplement for solo travelers on select sailings. 

Enjoy the privacy and comfort of your own cabin and ensuite on Swell and Cascadia, without any additional cost!

  • Craft Beer Cruise, Oct 27-31, aboard Swell, in 2024 and 2025
  • Desolation Sound & Fjords of BC, Oct 19-26, aboard Swell, Oct 20-27, aboard Cascadia, in 2024 and 2025
  • Desolation Sound in Spring, Apr 25-29, aboard Swell, May 1-5, aboard Cascadia, in 2025
  • Salish Sea Expedition, Apr 18-25, aboard Swell, in 2025

  • Wines & Islands, Oct 29-Nov 2, aboard Cascadia, in 2024 and 2025

Note that as a locally-owned expedition company, we own and maintain our own ships and pay our all-local crew good wages. It does make our operating costs high which is why we haven’t yet figured out how to make every trip on Cascadia and Swell available to this special; however, every trip on Maple Leaf, and every trip on Cascadia and Swell for people who want to share, is also available at this pricing.

Float With Your Bubble

Embark on a Private Charter next year—a rare and exclusive opportunity to create lifelong memories with your closest family and friends. Our crew and guides are not only skilled mariners but also experts in crafting fun and transformative escapes. With engaging guides and naturalists, you’ll delve into the region’s nature, wildlife, and culture while enjoying beach fires, beachcombing, hot springs, and more.

With ships catering to up to 8, 12 or 24 guests—there are options for single families to larger groups of families and friends.

Book Early to Secure Your Spot!

With limited availability and high demand, our custom charters can sell out quickly. To avoid disappointment, we recommend booking as soon as possible. A deposit of one-third of the total price is required to secure your reservation.

Availability and Scheduling

Custom charters are determined by availability within our trip schedule, which you can view on our Dates & Rates page. If an upcoming trip has not yet taken bookings, there’s an opportunity to arrange a custom charter. We can also accommodate dates on either side of the schedule, such as early April and late October.

Since your charter will replace a regular trip in our schedule, fares are usually based on the price of a comparative trip. Please contact our sales team to see if a group discount is available based on when and where you wish to travel.

Get in touch with us!

Reach out anytime to discuss options and start planning your unforgettable 2025 adventure, though once a trip has taken bookings we can no longer offer it as a private charter. Don’t miss this chance to explore exotic destinations with the people you cherish most!
