Just wanted to thank you and the crew for such a wonderful Mystery Cruise in May. The crew was great, the other passengers friendly, and your chef, Shannon was fabulous. I hope to do this again sometime. Great trip!

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. With freight opportunities dictating our actual “ports of call”, the Aurora Explorer often travels deep into the coastal fjords, branching off from the Broughton Archipelago into Knight Inlet, Kingcome Inlet, Wakeman Sound, Mackenzie Sound and Drury Inlet to complete her freight deliveries. Knight Inlet, the longest and most spectacular of all of our coastal fjords, represents all that is majestic about coastal British Columbia.
