I am sailing, I am sailing home again 'cross the sea.
I am sailing, stormy waters, to be near you, to be free.

Join me for a cruise around breathtaking Vancouver Island in Canada. It is a seven days sailing experience on board of s/y Oceanis. For this journey you do not need any previous sailing experience. You will be involved in every part of sailing, and this trip is for people of all levels incl. complete beginners.

Warm summer winds, changeable weather and a treasure trove of islands, inlets, fjords and rivers to explore mean Vancouver Island sets sailors’ pulses racing. With stunning panoramic vistas providing the backdrop to a blend of island hopping, coastal exploration and ocean-style cruising on the Salish Sea, the Pacific Northwest ranks among the finest cruising grounds on Earth.

Rugged Vancouver Island offers fantastic hiking on well-maintained trails, spectacular views, and excellent sport fishing. It's also home to some truly remarkable wildlife including wolves, black bears and cougars, while offshore sea otters frolic in beds of kelp, pods of orcas hunt for food and migratory whales pass within sight of shore.

We will sail out into the Salish Sea from Vancouver Island to visit the marine parks and secluded anchorages of the Gulf Islands, where whales and dolphins are often spotted. We will sail into Desolation Sound for isolated fjords, towering mountains and spectacular wildlife. We will take course to east from Vancouver Island to reach the USA’s fir-covered San Juan Islands. Warm weather, fresh air, soaring bald eagles and cruising killer whales are the islands’ calling cards.
