Great Bear Sea wildlife sailing cruise, Canada

Our Islands, Otters, Bears, and Ancient Forests expedition takes us into the southern end of the world-renowned Great Bear Rainforest. These are rich waters that offer some of the best wildlife-viewing opportunities in Canada – from bubble-net feeding humpback whales and massive fin whales to roaming pods of orcas, Pacific white-sided dolphins, porpoises, seals, sea lions, and sea otters. Under the distant gaze of the snow-capped coastal mountain ranges, we’ll explore island archipelagos, dramatic rocky shores, current-swept passages, kelp forests, and white-sand beaches. On shore excursions and inflatable boat tours, we’ll be able to get up close with brilliantly coloured tide pool ... Read more >

Vancouver Island whale watching tours, Canada

There’s no better place on earth to observe killer whales, humpback whales, and many other marine mammals than in British Columbia’s Johnstone Strait and Blackfish Sound. Here, where the coastline and islands create a huge bottleneck, killer whales congregate to feast on massive numbers of migrating wild Pacific salmon. On our Whales of Johnstone Strait and Blackfish Sound expedition, you’ll have an incredible opportunity to get up close and intimate with these iconic creatures. You’ll observe behaviours such as spy hopping and breaching, hear their distinct vocalizations via hydrophone, and learn the differences between the fish-eating “resident” orcas and their mammal-eating “transient” ...

Gwaii Haanas photography tour in Canada

Situated at the very southern tip of the Haida Gwaii Archipelago, Kunghit Island is named for the Kunghit Haida who occupied this extremely remote island for millennia. We’ve chosen to focus our 2017 Gwaii Haanas photo tour around Kunghit Island because it encapsulates the very essence of Gwaii Haanas National Park Reserve, National Marine Conservation Area, and Haida Heritage Site. Within half a day’s travel, we’ll have access to remote white-sand beaches, rugged islets, kelp forests, surge channels, and lagoons teeming with colourful marine life, colonies of tufted puffins, and one of the largest Steller sea lion rookeries in British Columbia. At sea, we are likely to encounter killer ... Read more >

Pacific Rim sailing cruise, Canada

There are few places in the world that can match the natural beauty of Vancouver Island’s remote west coast wilderness. And nowhere exemplifies this region like Barkley Sound’s Broken Group Islands, the jewel of Pacific Rim National Park Reserve. Join us aboard the schooner Passing Cloud for a sailing expedition into a sprawling archipelago of ancient rainforests and storm-carved coastlines, a magical place where bears forage on beaches while just offshore, grey whales sift the shallows and killer whales hunt for fish and seals. Through shore excursions, inflatable boat tours, sailing, and kayaking, you’ll have a chance to explore the unique geography of this region – islands, beaches, ... Read more >

Great Bear Rainforest sailing cruise, Canada

There’s no place like British Columbia’s Great Bear Rainforest. Encompassing more than 64,000 square kilometres, it’s the largest intact coastal temperate rainforest in the world, a place where ancient forests support more biomass than any other terrestrial ecosystem on the Planet. Our Salmon, Bears, Whales, and Ancient Forests expedition takes us deep into the heart of this remote region, where we’ll observe, photograph, and learn about its ecosystems and most iconic species, wild Pacific salmon, grizzly bears, Spirit bears, whales, and wolves. See grizzly bears foraging in majestic estuaries and spend a day at bear-viewing stands for opportunities to view both spirit bears and black ... Read more >

Gwaii Haanas nature and wildlife cruise in Canada

This 9-day expedition is dedicated to exploring and learning about the ecosystems, wildlife, and cultural heritage of Gwaii Haanas National Park Reserve, Haida Heritage Site, and National Marine Conservation Area. Haida Gwaii, formerly known as "Queen Charlotte's Islands", is a remote island archipelago located 100 km off the northwest coast of British Columbia. This is a world where giant moss-laden spruce and cedar trees tower over enchanted salmon streams, and productive kelp forests and colourful intertidal communities fringe the interface between land and sea. The unparalleled diversity of marine life includes everything from puffins to albatrosses, sunfish to jellyfish, and killer ... Read more >
