Sailing Through Serenity

At the northwestern edge of Canada, this storm-battered area is an ecologically and archaeologically significant landscape of over 200 islands, old-growth forest, rugged headlands and protected passageways sandwiched between mountains. Setting sail in the waters that split Vancouver Island and southeast Alaska with a crew of Wild Women is the perfect way to reset and feel restored in the West Coast wilderness. We spend each evening in different secluded anchorages and explore the sheltered coastlines by sea kayaks as well!

Explore “Canada’s Galápagos”

Walk on Footprint-less Beaches

The islands of this isolated archipelago are difficult to reach and rarely visited. We anchor in secluded bays, and via Zodiac boats, we pull up to the shoreline to walk on footprint-less beaches. Known as “Canada’s Galápagos,” the islands are bursting with life above and below the giant Sitkas and cedars. More than 500 archaeological sites are found here including the longhouse remains and ghostly carved poles of Haida villages that wooed celebrated Canadian artist Emily Carr long ago.
