Recommended by Frommer's and National Geographic Adventure, each sailing cruise aboard the schooner Maple Leaf takes place in a region of the coast that is a must-see location.
Our objectives for your trip are to give you the best possible experience of wildlife, nature and culture, as well as a welcoming, informative, adventurous and comfortable trip.
You will travel with a small group of guests. As our guest, you will be guided and cared for by expert crew, prominent naturalist, and chef. Your experience of the coast's rainforests, fjords, islands, wildlife and cultures will be authentic, exclusive and profound.
We also offer power yacht Galapagos Islands cruise tours.
The spacious main cabin is open and airy by day, and the sleeping areas offer large comfortable beds (bunks), six-and-a-half feet long, with fluffy duvets, pillows and throws and brass reading lamps. They have walls on two-and-a-half sides and thick, heavy curtains on the other one-and-a-half sides.
As one journalist recently said, "they resemble nothing so much as very spacious, luxuriously appointed 1930s train compartments".
There are three bathrooms (heads) with hot showers.
A dining lounge also holds the ship's library and is a pleasant place to sit and read, chat, or enjoy a cup of tea.
We often dine on deck (on occasion, a picnic or barbeque ashore).
However, the comfortable dining area provides a perfect atmosphere for sharing the day's experiences with new friends over a glass of wine and a fine meal prepared by our superb chef.
We also support conservation research on the coast, as well as the development of true ecotourism. As a member of 1% For The Planet, we donate at least 1% of all sales (not profits, but sales) to coastal conservation each year. (Our accountants like to tell us how much more than 1% it usually is.)
