Typical Day

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 “blackfish”. 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.
