"We enjoyed the dedicated enthusiastic staff that pampered us older folks in every way. Combine this with lovingly prepared gourmet food, a well run ship, cosy remote lodges and the great BC outdoors backdrop at its Best- and you have a very memorable vacation. A bit pricy but worth it, how else could you visit these beautiful BC fjords where normal cruise ships can’t go."
"If you've ever longed to see Desolation Sound, Pacific Coastal Cruises and Tours are the way to go - top notch professionalism with a personal touch. Throughout the entire trip, beginning to end, the Captain and his crew offered a five star experience of a lifetime. We were impressed by their knowledge, enthusiasm and experience as they guided us on a stellar cruise through one of the jewels on BC's rugged coastline. Highly recommended!"
"We thoroughly enjoyed the cruise we took with Pacific Coastal. The crew were informative and totally pampered us. Barry did an amazing job of preparing wonderful meals for us. The accommodation was great and the scenery spectacular. The BC coast is truly a fabulous place to cruise and we saw an amazing array of wildlife - seals, humpback whales, and even two grizzly bears. Sometimes the best adventures are right in our own back yard. We highly recommend a trip with these folks. Diane and Rob"
"We cruised with Pacific Coastal on board the "Pacific Bear" around the Salish Sea between 4-8 June 2018. We had been to Canada on two previous occasions and we wanted a different experience this time. We absolutely loved the experience of having a very personal cruise with a very knowledgeable crew. We cruised around the Canadian Gulf Islands spending time in Chemainus, Ganges on Salt Spring Island and South Pender Island. Also cruising the American Gulf Islands and seeing some beautiful Orcas as well as many seals, propoises and birds along the way. Our cruise took us along the shorelines of many islands to view the beautiful homes.
Captain Lance - a true professional and our safety and comfort was always the top priority.
Holliday - our on-board naturalist, was always a wealth of information about the history of the area and kept us entertained with lots of folklore stories.
Greg - man of many talents. Quiet but always at hand when needed.
Armand - our chef on board. Nothing was too much trouble for him even with our specific dietary requirements. All meals on board were prepared with fresh ingredients With an ever changing menu. Tea, coffee, wine, beer, juice and water was always on hand. We would recommend this cruise to anyone interested. "
"Just returned from a wonderful and memorable 5 day Salish Sea Cruise with Pacific Coastal Cruises - can't say enough good things about this experience. The boat is charming and very comfortable, the crew friendly, welcoming and very professional, the food is beyond amazing - healthy and so delicious - our every want and need was catered to. We learned a lot about the history of the islands from Holliday, our on board naturalist, saw seals, sea birds and Orcas in their natural environment. We enjoyed a horse drawn carriage tour of the beautiful murals in Chemainus, dropped into Ganges to have a look around, stayed four overnights at two wonderful resorts - Cowichan Bay Inn and Suites and Poet's Cove Resort and Spa on South Pender Island. There is always something interesting to see on the water and Captain Lance toured us close to shore to look at amazing cottages and homes. Ferry traffic on the Salish Sea is frequent - so interesting seeing all the different vessels out there. To sum up, I would highly recommend this trip - it is a wonderful experience."
"We had an amazing trip to the lodge in September to see bears. We loved the boats, our bedroom, the gorgeous food, the cosy evenings by the fire, and the fabulous group of people we met there. The highlight was seeing the bears...catching the salmon and walking around in front of us...stunning! And the humpback whale that paid us a visit at dinner was incredible! We would recommend this place to anyone, and hope to return one day. Thank you all for making our trip so special x"
"My sister and I recently went on the five day four night cruise to desolation sound. It was one of the most amazing trips of our lives. Aside from the beautiful scenery and wildlife we were able to see, the crew on the boat were amazing and accommodating. They went the extra mile to make sure everyone on the boat was happy and comfortable. The food at the lodge and on board the cruise was amazing, and my glass was never empty. Humfrey lodge is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been. I can’t wait to return next year!"
