Our premier cruising ground leaving Sidney.


The most popular cruising area on the BC Coast. Numerous marine parks, great marinas, yacht clubs and scenic anchorages. 

The perfect area to begin your cruising education, learn the ropes and see some great locations. 


Head north from Vancouver and English Bay and you are cruising the beautiful Sunshine Coast. 

Spend your whole course here or cruise on through for destinations further north. A great place to expand your knowledge and experience. 

You can keep the beaten path and stay within access to amenities or veer off to less known locations such as stunning Chatterbox Falls. 


The secret is out about Desolation Sound. A sought after destination for cruisers north and south of the boarder. 

Wonderful islands, anchorages and scenery. Swim in the warmest waters of the BC Coast, hike to secluded lakes and look outs or kayak in seclusion as you hunt for petroglyphs. Enjoy quant island villages and locals who are seeking go get away from it all. Chock full of history and a great arts and music culture to enjoy. 


Looking for adventure?

                                Take the path less travelled.


'The Broughtons' are a secluded island group off inside the north side of Vancouver Island. Hundreds of islands, very few settlements and less cruising boats to dodge. 


Enjoy First Nations culture and people off the grid. Fantastic scenery and more abundant wild life and sea life. 


Truly a rare and memorable cruising experience.
