About Pacific Coastal Cruises & Tours

Lodge to Lodge Cruises

The Experience

Experience lodge to lodge cruising – experience intimate, engaging encounters. Up close and personal adventures aboard the comfort of the Pacific Bear, and the welcoming nature of the coastal community at our selected-on shore accommodation. Our cruises are not the normal or average adventure. These journeys appeal to those adventure seekers who possess on going curiosity. These are not just small ships with compromised on board accommodations, rather a comfortable, relaxed atmosphere on a boutique ship and expansive, first class on shore accommodation. Imagine the convenience of boarding the cruise and leaving your luggage to be safely transported to your room at the next port. Pacific Coastal Cruises has an uncompromised commitment of going to places and doing things other cruises and tours have not discovered or included. As we often times cruise though remote passages, isolated inlets and hamlets and seek out no journey is the same.

What We Do

Pacific Coastal understands what travellers expect when choosing a small group expedition. One of the most important factors in being able to immerse yourself in the destination and expedition experience is not having to worry about the multitude of logistical details of the “off the beaten path” exploration. Pacific Coastal virtually attends to and includes everything.

At Pacific Coastal Cruises & Tours we have a passion for the British Columbia Coast. For 35 years we have lived this passion by showing inquisitive explorers our coast by land and by sea, outside the realm of traditional travel. As the shore side of British Columbia Coast develops, it gives us more opportunities to create and develop new areas of exploration. Constantly creating innovative itineraries, it allows our fellow adventurers more reasons to return. Our onboard crew shares our passion. Experienced in service and their individual quest for knowledge and sharing, they are the bond that defines journey into an enriching transformative experience.
