Mit fogunk csinálni?

Prepare yourself for an adventure that balances the thrill of sailing Howe Sound's legendary winds with the breathtaking views of the Coastal and Tantalus mountain ranges.

We will depart from the docks in Squamish (about 40 minutes north of Vancouver on the highway to Whistler) and raise the sails as we pass beneath the legendary Stawamus Chief granite monolith and Shannon Falls.

Regardless of expertise or ability, you will learn about sailing and experience unbounded excitement as the wind fills our sails and accelerates our 40' sailboat across the waters of Canada's southernmost fjord. Take a turn at the helm or grind a winch to trim sails - the more involved you become, the more fun you will have.

A dance of colourful kites await as we tack offshore in the afternoon's inflow winds. The same topographic phenomenon that makes the area perfect for sailing attracts kiteboarders from around the world.

We will explore the northern section of the Howe Sound fjord and promise many photo opportunities that will stand amongst the highlights of your trip.

With a little luck, we may even sight a pod of dolphins or Orcas!

Welcome aboard - let's have some fun.
Other things to note
We respect our oceans and try to minimize our environmental impact. Please choose aluminum containers for beverages instead of plastic or glass, and avoid the use of plastic bags and plastic wrap. Tx!

We love to share our passion for the wind, water and natural beauty that surrounds us in coastal British Columbia. Howe Sound is undoubtedly one of the best places in the world to sail, with predictable and stable winds, majestic mountains, waterfalls, marine life, and, of course, a welcoming crew!

Whether you are a complete novice or seasoned sailboat racer, you will thoroughly enjoy the experience of a hands-on sailing adventure, learn about the ecological and historic features of the region and leave with a memorable adventure that you will share for years to come.

Hol leszünk?

We get thousands of visitors from around the world every year, but only a handful experience the pristine beauty of the area from the perspective of the water.

Let us know what you prefer - we can spend our time playing in the wind or cruise the coastline exploring the sights of glaciers, waterfalls, cliffs and coves in waters that have been travelled by our indigenous forebears for thousands of years.

I’m so glad we made the drive from Vancouver to Squamish for this adventure. If you’re looking for a unique experience this hits the mark. David goes above and beyond to make everyone feel comfortable and included. Don’t hesitate, get out on the water and enjoy BC!

Amazing amazing amazing experience. The weather was rainy and cold on the day that we went but that in no way took away from the spectacular time we had on the boat. Dave and Harley provided hot tea and warm blankets which made the experience comfortable despite the weather. I would highly recommend that you dress warmly on the water and wear waterproof gear if you can! We made new friends, had great conversations amongst incredible views in Squamish. The experience is super interactive - expect to learn about the different parts of the sail boat and participate in steering, raising the sails and navigating the waters. Oh and don’t forget to spot some seals! They’re shy!

David and Harli made this experience ever so lovely. Their passion for what they do shows so clearly through their energy and all their knowledge. Extremely personable, hospitable and very inclusive. I came on this adventure solo but never felt it. All the guests were given the option of participating and engaging with tasks on the boat if they felt comfortable. The views were absolutely phenomenal. I feel truly blessed to have found this experience :)

We had a lovely time. Wish we were able to sail further and see more but the weather was as lovely as our hosts. Wonderful knowing we have visited a newly named UNESCO heritage site.
