Schedule and Pricing

Bluewater is launching a new sailing vessel this year! After a spring of rigorous testing, she will explore the waters of the Gwaii Hanaas National Park Reserve and then the Great bear Rainforest on the central coast of British Columbia in search of the all white spirit bear. Built locally, the new yacht will be the most breathtaking, elegant, efficient tour vessel on our coast - with less environmental impact. We are tremendously proud and look forward to hosting you on your next adventure.

Each season brings great opportunities for discovery and adventure in majestic wilderness settings in Southeast Alaska and along BC's wild coast...

Haida Gwaii, formerly known as the Queen Charlotte Islands, is a remote collection of Islands off the north coast of British Columbia and provides an unparalleled natural history experience - amazing marine life, old-growth rainforests, and ancient Haida village sites. They are formally known as the Queen Charlotte Islands - come see why National Geographic selected this trip as "One of the Worlds 50 Best!"

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.
