Sailboat cruise (Dannielle Hayes photo)
Vancouver Island cruise companies explore scenic shorelines and numerous islands, often spotting marine wildlife along the way.
Sail the Broughton Archipelago to view whales or travel to ancient rainforests on Vancouver Island’s west coast. Visit isolated villages on a working freighter, pass lighthouses on a Tofino harbour sunset cruise or take a boat tour to Gulf Islands breweries. BC Ferries provides ample opportunities to see scenic waterways and coastlines.
Cruises range from multi-day trips with nights spent onboard (accommodations vary from ship to ship) to single day excursions. Groups are usually under ten guests. Port Hardy, Port McNeill, Sidney and Campbell River are popular ports of departure for cruise companies.
