Seattle, WA, United States

Transfer to the Safari Quest at Seattle's waterfront, where the crew greets you with champagne and smiles. Set sail in time for cocktail hour and dinner as you cruise into the Salish Sea.

Victoria, BC, Canada

After clearing customs, it's all ashore in downtown Victoria. Take high tea at the elegant Empress Hotel, then spend time on your own to visit the Royal British Columbia Museum or browse the quaint shops nuzzled about this garden city. Back onboard the yacht, set sail through the Gulf Islands and settle into the rhythm of the Salish Sea.

Princess Louisa Inlet, BC, Canada

Discover nature's wonders today off the Sunshine Coast of British Columbia. Small group skiff rides keep you busy in a sheltered bay or along rugged shoreline, where sea lions, tide pools, driftwood, and superb birding are common sights. Pass through the Malibu Rapids into the calm waters of Princess Louisa Inlet, one of the most beautiful locations on earth. Only half a mile wide and walled in by 7,000-foot, near-vertical mountains, the inlet culminates at the tremendous Chatterbox Falls. Anchor in the inlet for exploration on foot and by kayak. The evening offers up relaxation in the upper deck hot tub, or, when conditions are right, campfire camaraderie with your yachtmates.

Princess Louisa Inlet, BC, Canada
Jervis Inlet, BC, Canada

Watch the early light play through Princess Louisa Inlet, brightening your morn. Set aside time for one last paddle or exploring the inlet by skiff before heading out to the "yachter's paradise" of Jervis Inlet. Binoculars in-hand, keep all eyes open for orca, porpoise, seals, and sea lions along the rocky shoreline as you cruise through the waters of Princess Royal Reach.

Harmony Islands, BC, Canada
Jedediah Island, BC, Canada

Wake up with a guided kayak or skiff outing among the remote Harmony Islands. During lunch onboard, take in the sights around you. Arriving at Jedediah Island—the most diverse island in a chain of more than thirty islands and islets—hike and investigate the tide pools with your knowledgeable crew in this provincial park.

Friday Harbor, WA, United States

Sublime glacially-carved landscapes and a backdrop painted with harbor seals, bald eagles, sea lions, and Douglas fir. Cruise the protected waters of the Salish Sea crossing back into the U.S., through the intricate passages of the San Juans. On San Juan Island, the largest of the chain, clear customs in the tiny town of Friday Harbor before an intriguing visit to The Whale Museum and touring historic sites. Later, navigate to some of the most remote islands in the archipelago. Location and conditions have their say in what's in store—a coastal hike, a stroll in the woods, or searches for orcas. It'll be a treat—wherever the tides take you.

San Juan Islands, WA, United States

Spend the day in some of the lesser-known San Juan Islands, accessible only by boat or float plane. Kayak or skiff into the sunrise. The scenery is stunning and the passages are just right. Be on watch for orca and other marine wildlife. If the weather stars align, picnic on shore. Hike along a windswept bluff or stick to the shoreline for some exploring. There's a Captain's Farewell Dinner this evening. Afterwards, an always entertaining picturesque recap of your week onboard awaits.

Seattle, WA, United States

This morning, transit through the historic Hiram M. Chittenden Locks into Seattle. After breakfast, the Captain and crew bid you a fond farewell. Safe travels to all!
