Holiday Overview

 

A 7-night British Columbia small ship nature cruise that will take you to remote areas of the Inside Passage. With only 8 cabins on board the vessel this is perfect for those that are looking for a small, intimate cruise getting to see nature and wildlife at it's best. Be prepared to get off your yacht and onto kayaks & zodiac’s for an adventure of a lifetime!

Over the next 6 days, you will travel to a number of areas around the Central Coast such as Campania Sound and Whale Channel - excellent areas for spotting humpback whales and Steller sea lions. You may go ashore in the Gitga’at (Princess Royal Island) Conservancy. You will cruise over to Bishop Bay to enjoy a relaxing dip in the hot springs and spend a day with a Gitga’at native guide, taking us to his favourite bear viewing area. With patience and some luck you will see black bears and the elusive, white Spirit Bear! You may visit the First Nations village of Klemtu or Hartley Bay to see their ceremonial Big Houses. You will voyage deep into the coastal mountains to explore the Fiordland Conservancy where, beneath towering rock bluffs and waterfalls, you will search remote estuaries to see grizzly bears feeding on spawning salmon.

This holiday is complete with stays in both cosmopolitan Vancouver and awe-inspiring Whistler. One of the many highlights will be your journey across BC’s rooftop on the world record-breaking PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola in Whistler. No holiday will ever be the same after this trip!
