Just a word to let you know that my wife Bev and I had a great time on our recent trip on board Aurora Explorer. We had unique experiences, good food, a fine crew who could not have done more for us and comfortable accommodation aboard the Explorer. We are so glad to have had the opportunity to do this trip.

“We have three different trips we do on this ship,” says Captain Phillipe Menetrier, easing back the throttle at the bridge of the MV Aurora Explor - er . “This is the Discovery Islands trip we are on. We also go north as far as Kingcome Inlet and then we have something we call a ‘mystery cruise.’ But since our freight sched - ule can change from hour to hour, in fact they are all mystery trips.”
The captain eases the Aurora up onto a white sand beach and lowers the front-loading ramp so passen - gers can amble ashore to stretch their legs. Here at the far eastern tip of Bute Inlet, grizzly bears may also roam the beaches, so passengers don’t wander far. Snow-covered mountain peaks tower 2,000 metres as far as the eye can see, and silt-laden emerald green waters lap gently at the shore. If this isn’t heaven, it’s sure not far away.
