About the Gulf Islands National Park and Salish Sea

Just outside Vancouver, Victoria and Seattle, this spectacular archipelago of 200+ islands is still wild and beautiful. It’s filled with islands that are inaccessible by ferries.

Maple Leaf will take you sailing to remote beaches and wildlife colonies.

Board the classic, 92-foot schooner Maple Leaf at Sidney, BC, just outside of Victoria, and cruise away to experience of spring’s rejuvenating bounty.

Nature, Naturalist and Beauty

Wildflower meadows, migrating birds, marine mammals, and dry rainforests are just the beginning of the natural wonders you’ll explore on this 5-night cruise with Maple Leaf’s expert guides, naturalist, and crew.
