The Ibis is a modern and fully equipped ocean cruiser. Her self- furling main and jib (with all sheets leading back to the cockpit) make her fun and easy to sail. Her navigational aids include auto helm steering, radar, chart plotter and DSC radio. She sleeps 4 comfortably in two separate state rooms. For families and intimate groups another two persons can be accommodated in the spacious salon.
If you have a half day to spend, we could sail around the Discovery and Chatham Islands. These are among the loveliest of the Gulf Islands â" solitary, wild, and natural, and set against a backdrop of snow-capped mountains, featuring Mount Baker and the Olympic Mountains!
Half-Day Sails (3 hours) typically run between 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM or from 1:30 PM to 4:30 PM.
Having a full day allows extra time for lunch and refreshments while anchored in a secluded cove among the islands. If you desire, we can go ashore to hike and explore.
Full-Day Sails will usually go from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM.
Overnight Charters open up a whole range of possibilities of cruising the Gulf Islands or even farther. Day 1: Departing from Oak Bay near Victoria, we cross Haro Strait to Lime Kiln Park, an area strategic to whales, and follow the coastline of San Juan Island in search of these âblackfishâ. Our destination is Portland Island Marine Park, where we will anchor for the night. Lots of great hiking trails and sandy beaches for exploring and swimming.
Day 2: Cruise to Ganges, the lively art community on Saltspring Island. We moor at Wallace Island, where we relive the pioneering lives of a couple who spent their honeymoon and most of their lives attempting to develop a rustic resort here: Keep the tradition alive; nail your carved sign on the wall or ceiling of their log cabin (if space).
Day 3: A leisurely cruise to Montague Harbour on Galiano Island; hike and explore park beaches.
Day 4: Cruise to Winter Harbour to hike Saturna Island, then anchor near Poets Cove Resort on Portland Island. Here we can hike Mount Norman for a grand view of the Gulf Islands, followed by a swim and hot tub at this fab resort.
Day 5: Afternoon cruise to Sidney Spit Marine Park, where we can hike the sandy spit and adjacent trails. You will be treated to a view point you will long remember!.
Day 6: Cruise back to Oak Bay visiting the uninhabited Discovery and Chatham Islands off Oak Bay. Here we can lay back and enjoy our last lunch at anchor in an idyllic arbutus-flanked cove.
