4-5 hour tour. Sail through deep fjords of the Salish sea to multiple unique islands and explore the diversity of geology, and flora. Get a taste of the cruising lifestyle, have a meal at anchor, dingy to remote islands, hike to incredible views and let our naturalists unravel the complex ecosystem that makes our archipelago so unique. Imagine raising sails and reaching off to an unpopulated island, setting anchor, boarding the dingy and landing on a smooth agate and shell covered beach. Hiking trails to secluded coves past towering fir and madrona trees and past moss covered rocks, wildflowers and lush ferns. Watch the sun sparkle on the surface or get brave and even take a dip in the cold waters for a real "immersive" experience. Our guides know all the best secret spots for your ultimate getaway.
