Cut From the Same Jib

We have had the absolute fortune of meeting many outstanding individuals who create the most inspirational, passionate and life-changing experiences over years of hosting guests from around the World. There is an intrinsic nature that each of these people possess who unselfishly share their excitement, expertise and passion with our guests – but how on earth did they find Bluewater Adventures?

Could it be our reputation? – Bluewater has been hosting trips the longest out of any operators on this coast and we have met thousands of travelers from around the world.

Could it be our expedition vessels? – We have 2 ketches and 1 sloop – all built locally. They are will maintained and exciting to travel aboard.

Might it be the places that we explore? – There is a solace one finds on the water, on a remote beach and amongst towering old-growth cedars. Its calls for your return are unrelenting.

The incredible group of people who make up Bluewater Crew now and through the years could probably agree that it’s a dash of all 3. We are truly grateful for these talented people with colourful stories, immense knowledge and experiences who craft each trip as if it’s the last they’ll every sail.

These two are cut from the same jib…
