Cruises & Boat Tours
Sailboat cruise (Dannielle Hayes photo)
Go cruising in the Vancouver, Coast & Mountains region to access spectacular scenery and the mild, protected waters of the Sunshine Coast and Fraser River.
Desolation Sound Marine Provincial Park (on the Sunshine Coast) is one of the most popular destinations for BC cruises.
Set sail with a cruise operator named “Best Adventure Travel Company on Earth” by National Geographic Adventure (2009), combine a night at a historic hotel in Lund with a sunset dinner cruise, or blend cruising with ocean paddling by wet launching a kayak from a mothership schooner.
Sailboat charters are plentiful on the Sunshine Coast; there are also powerboat or paddleboat cruises available on the Fraser River.
Cruises range from multi-day sailing trips with nights spent onboard (accommodations vary from ship to ship) to single day excursions. Groups are usually under ten guests. West Vancouver (Horseshoe Bay), Gibsons, Sechelt, Lund and Mission are popular ports of departure for cruise companies.
