We had a wonderful voyage on the Aurora Explorer. Relaxing, educational, different! Friendly people and crew - 12 passengers! Food very fresh and delicious. A wonderful library of local interest books.

"Pushing the Beach" The Story of Marine Link Transportation and the MV Aurora Explorer

For those who have enjoyed the Aurora Explorer adventure this "must read" account reveals so much more about her origin, the founding members and tales of the MV Aurora Explorer's beginnings on through to her current configuration and unique passenger adventures offered by Marine Link Tours.

After departing Menzies Bay, the Aurora Explorer makes her way north through Seymour Narrows, Discovery Passage and Johnstone Strait calling at isolated villages and camps along the way. Passengers enjoy spectacular scenery and unparalleled wildlife viewing that often includes porpoises, whales, seals, sea lions and eagles. This route takes us through Chatham Channel, past Minstrel Island, and into the endless maze of channels and islands that form the Broughton Archipelago.
