A relaxing scenic cruise, panoramic views, and a breathtaking sunset.
Enjoy a leisurely cruise around the Ballenas-Winchelsea archipelago, and along the coastline of Nanoose Bay. Take in the beauty and wildlife abundant on the rocky windswept islands, with a panoramic backdrop of the distant snowcapped Coast Mountains. We will tour past the historic 104 year old Ballenas Island lighthouse, to anchor in a sheltered bay for refreshments. On the slow cruise home, relax astern as the sun drops into the sea, and you soak up the warm light of magic hour.
