Booking and Cancellation Policies
Our naturalist cruise director is your guide, ensuring your experience is both enjoyable and enriching. Daily talks examine both local wildlife and the region’s rich Indigenous history. As we follow the route first navigated by Captain George Vancouver, our Captain demonstrates navigating techniques, charting, and Seamanship Safety. Onboard our Little Blue Boat, guests are encouraged to listen, learn, and participate.
All meals are included, both onboard and/or on shore. The varied menus reflect the local seasons; from watching your onboard chef prepare for an evening’s dinner your experience will extend to a curated taste of the regions’ finest. This holds true for the beverages as well; beer – and home-grown wine– are included complimentary with your onboard meals and during your stay at Homfray Lodge. The meals will vary from cruise to cruise, ensuring that all guests savour foods at the height of their flavour. To inspire companionship, meals are generally served “family style.”
Luggage is transported between the Pacific Bear and your accommodation from the morning of your cruise departure to the end of the cruise and is included in the tour price.
