Cruises & Boat Tours
Sailboat cruise (Dannielle Hayes photo)
In the Cariboo Chilcotin Coast, cruise past spectacular scenery that includes towering granite walls, fjords and inlets, cascading waterfalls, and untouched coastal rainforests.
Whales, bears and other wildlife are often seen while cruising in this region, and "Sailing the Great Bear Rainforest” is one of Frommer’s travel guides favourite experiences in Canada.
Go cruising with a National Geographic Adventure “Best Adventure Travel Company on Earth” (2009) on a century-old schooner, or travel the waters around Bella Bella in a heritage tugboat. As part of some cruise tours, relax in oceanside hot springs, enjoy fresh seafood or learn about coastal Aboriginal culture.
Cruises range from multi-day trips with nights spent onboard (accommodations vary from ship to ship) to single day excursions. Most groups are usually under ten guests. Bella Bella and Bella Coola are popular ports of departure for cruise companies. The BC Ferries Discovery Coast Passage route also sails along the mid-coast.
