SAN JUAN ISLANDS … CANADIAN GULF ISLANDS
The island-studded waterways of the great Pacific Northwest are often overlooked as one of the finest charter destinations of the world. There are so many coves and inlets that you will rarely have to share your anchorage with another yacht!
Many islands are still inhabited only by bald eagles and deer. The waters are rich with salmon and whales. Seals, otters and bears are just part of the show! Set a crab trap, catch a salmon for dinner and enjoy the beauty of the long twilight hours of summer.
The Northwest region of peaceful channels, breathtaking waterfalls and inlets with forested shores by picturesque towns and fishing villages.
For a little sophistication, visit the cosmopolitan city of Vancouver with her beautiful waterfront, backdrop of snow capped mountains, breathtaking views and fabulous Chinatown, with some of the best cuisine this side of Shanghai! Enjoy High Tea at the famed Empress Hotel in Victoria. Take a ride on a double-decker bus or spend the afternoon visiting Victoria’s brilliant flower gardens, galleries and Royal British Columbia Museum know for its outstanding re-creations of Pacific Northwest habitats.
