Vancouver Yacht Charter

Overview

Seeking a retreat, away from hectic days, where whispering winds, lapping seas and nature's melody rejuvenates your spirit; a place where infinite wishes await in the star-filled sky? Then look no more…

With fabulous scenery and amazing wildlife, many visiting sailors acknowledge the cruising area between mainland Canada and Vancouver Island as one of the world’s finest and probably its best kept secret too!

In partnership with Islands Cruising, Sunsail’s Preferred Partner and the undisputed charter industry leader in the Vancouver Island region, you can pick from more than 2,154 islands to explore throughout The Gulf Islands, The San Juan Islands (USA), The Sunshine Coast and Desolation Sound.

The variety and number of islands makes this area vacation paradise! Secret coves and fjords, protected anchorages, waterfalls, lively ports of call (in two countries), and an open sea teeming with wildlife, are all yours to enjoy.

In Victoria, the capital city of British Columbia located on Vancouver Island's southern tip, take a stroll down cobblestone streets to the majestic Fairmont Empress Hotel to sip afternoon tea or spend the evening with a cool martini and vivacious jazz.

Before or after your charter, visit Vancouver, a unique city that oozes “cool”.  Nestled between snowcapped mountains, leafy forests and beaches, Vancouver pulsates with cosmopolitan sophistication, culinary flair and art, yet a wilderness adventure lingers nearby.

  • The Sunshine Coast

    A fantastic cruising ground in itself, the Sunshine Coast is often by-passed in the rush to get to Desolation Sound.  Uninhabited islands, marine parks, coastal villages, hidden anchorages and spectacular fiords comprise this pristine cruising ground.  A trip to the Sunshine Coast is not complete without visiting super natural Princess Louisa Inlet.
