The Great Bear Sea


This 8-day voyage operates one-way from Prince Rupert to Bella Bella, BC in order to access some of the most remote and wild areas of the British Columbia coast. The Great Bear Rainforest is the largest remaining tract of unspoiled temperate rainforest remaining in the world. There are several routes along the famed ‘Inside Passage’ and we will weave our way south, guided by the wildlife, weather and group interests. The geography ranges from the towering Coast Mountains with waterfalls cascading thousands of feet, to large coastal islands such as Pitt, Campania and Princess Royal, and right out to the low lying islands bordering Hecate Strait. This trip allows for more time spent in search of whales and provides with the opportunity to visit Cetacea Lab to learn about their valuable work.

Island Roamer

Spring in the Gulf Islands


People with an interest in natural history will thoroughly enjoy this trip. Each voyage is accompanied by an experienced naturalist who will give talks, slide shows, and lead shore excursions. With the help of interested participants we plan to keep a list of the animals and plants we sight each day. We do daily shore excursions in our inflatable zodiacs, as well as short hikes on the various islands.

The Gulf Islands are considered by many sailors to have some of the best cruising on the west coast of North America. Late spring and fall are the ideal time of year to visit; summer crowds are absent and the weather is generally mild and gentle.
