2018 Slowboat West Coast Vancouver Island Flotilla

THIS TRIP IS CURRENTLY FULLY BOOKED. If you’d like to travel around Vancouver Island with us this summer, consider our August/September trip.

Are you comfortable cruising the Inside Passage, but looking to explore further? This is the perfect flotilla trip for boaters with experience cruising Desolation Sound and the Broughtons who are interested in cruising the outside of Vancouver Island with expert guides and friendly fellow boaters! We’ll meet in Port McNeill and then spend three weeks on the outside of Vancouver Island on our way to Victoria.

Circumnavigating Vancouver Island is one of the quintessential Pacific Northwest cruises. Known for its raw beauty, powerful surf, wildlife and remoteness, the West Coast of Vancouver Island is an exceptional cruising area. Short hops in the ocean separate the five sounds, where we’ll enjoy tranquil anchorages, historic villages, sandy beaches, and hot springs.
