What you'll do
Experience the natural beauty of Georgia Strait, Howe Sound, and the Gulf Islands aboard a Jeanneau 40-foot cruising sailboat, with an experienced skipper & guide. On the 4 hour adventure, you can circumnavigate Keats Island, swim if you like; enjoy a BBQ or snacks. Make it a fun event for family, co-workers, or a group of friends, or you may want to just try out sailing before venturing out on a longer sail. THIS SAILING ADVENTURE - Duration = 4-hours - Planned for an evening but can be scheduled for morning or afternoon. - Cost = $500 for 4 guests ($125 per person) - Additional Guests = $50 each, up to 4 more guests (maximum of 8 guests in total) LOCATION Typically we start and finish in Gibsons BC (with free transportation from Langdale Ferry terminal OR free parking if you bring your own vehicle over). Gibsons is a sweet place to visit, but if you'd rather we pick you up in Vancouver or elsewhere, let us know and we will arrange (additional fee applies). FYI: we also offer 8 & 12 hour sailing adventures, as well as overnight trips for a weekend and up to five days.
Ever since my early childhood on the island of Malta, I have loved being near, on, or in the water. I spent most of my life in the Muskoka and Kawartha Lakes regions of southern Ontario: boating, swimming, waterskiing, windsurfing, and sailing (a 16' cat). Vicki & I moved to the west coast in 2006 to sail a bigger boat and have since sailed over 7,500 nautical miles (13,900 kms) in these waters. I am Transport Canada certified and have taken (literally) hundreds of people sailing in Georgia Strait, Howe Sound, and the Gulf Islands... and I would love to take you sailing as well !
