Below is a sample 7-day yachting itinerary in Vancouver. Enjoy.
Board your yacht in downtown Vancouver to begin your charter. Cruise past Stanley Park, underneath the Lions Gate Bridge and down the Vancouver Harbour and into the Indian Arm. Drop anchor at this exquisite location, accessible only by water, and have your chef prepare you a fresh seafood dinner you may savour whilst you relax aboard your yacht amidst the seasonal waterfalls.
Wake up to breakfast onboard before setting off for a day cruising up the Sunshine Coast towards Desolation Sound. As you sail through the Strait of Georgia admire the Coastal Mountains and islands covered in untouched temperate rainforest as you spot the endless seals lounging under the sun. As the day ends, drop anchor in the heart of the biggest Marine Park in BC.
Welcome to Desolation Sound, a popular boating and kayaking destination, a place naturally abundant with wildlife covered with an untouched temperate rainforest. Immerse yourself in the best that coastal BC has to offer; unusually warm waters, stunning views of snow-covered peaks and an idyllic sunset. Relax and lounge aboard your yacht or kayak to explore its meandering waterways.
Enjoy a morning cruise to Jervis Inlet, an inlet framed by towering coastal mountains and of such fjordic proportions that it attracts visitors from all over during the summer months. Anchor in your own private cove to catch a spectacular sunset over the snow-covered mountain peaks while you enjoy a dinner onboard prepared by your chef.
Arrive at one of the Sunshine Coast’s hidden gems: Princess Louisa Inlet - one of the most beautiful anchorages in the world accessed only by water or air. Drop anchor at Chatterbox Falls as you experience the inlet’s beauty: magnificent granite-walled gorges that rise from the water’s edges bathed by waterfalls created by the warm sun melting the snow-packed mountains.
After breakfast onboard, begin cruising towards the villages of Madeira Park, Garden Bay, Irvine’s Landing, and Kleindale collectively known as Pender Harbour. Tender ashore to visit the unique villages or go salmon fishing with a local guide. As the sun sets, lounge aboard your yacht and enjoy your favorite drinks and savour a fresh seafood dinner.
Enjoy a morning hike to Pender Hill and up Mount Daniel or take the tender to explore Fearney Bluffs, Nelson Rock, and the Anderson and Charles Islands before setting sail back to Vancouver. Relax onboard as you appreciate the breathtaking coastline ending your week-long charter to some of BC’s most magical sites.
