Cruises & Boat Tours
Burrard Inlet, Vancouver (Canadian Tourism Commission photo)
Frommer’s travel guide called BC one of the “World’s Great Sailing Regions” (2009).
Cruises in British Columbia have more than 27,000km/16,780mi of coastline, thousands of lakes and many mostly uninhabited islands to explore.
Popular cruising areas include the Inside Passage, Great Bear Rainforest, Queen Charlotte Islands/Haida Gwaii, Desolation Sound and the Gulf Islands. Choose from a wide selection of cruise operators, five of which were even recommended by Frommer's travel guide and/or National Geographic Adventure magazine.
On a BC cruise, discover granite cliffs with plunging waterfalls, sail through temperate rainforests, and float in quiet fjords and inlets with protected sanctuaries that are home to abundant wildlife.
Cruises range from multi-day trips and single day excursions to harbour and dinner cruises, with some operators offering rentals (for experienced skippers) or private charters with custom itineraries. Cruise companies may depart from several different ports and usually carry 10-15 guests.
Travelling the coast? BC Ferries offer cruise-like experiences while servicing 47 destinations, and some Alaskan cruises make ports of call at Vancouver, Victoria, Nanaimo and Prince Rupert.
