The most wonderful experience. 6 days of absolute bliss. Captain Ron & his crew were amazing & treated us royally & were so knowledgeable. Can’t say enough about the crew. Enjoyed them all. Always great interaction with all of us. Nothing was missed. The meals were exquisite. Thanks Janet. I am still in awe of all that you & Paige prepared & served. We saw humpbacks, orcas, dolphins. Swam at 3 beaches & had amazing beautiful clear, sunny hot days. A spectacular mtn around every corner with even a glimpse of Mt Waddington. So missing everyone & soooo much fun. Jan & Bill B. Ps…we did gain weight but so worth it.

This was a great trip through an interesting part of Canada. The barge crew's work was fascinating to watch and the food service crew were great. All of them were friendly and seemed very efficient in their duties. The pace of the trip was very relaxing. All around, it was well worth doing.

This was the most wonderful trip. The scenery was stunning. We saw humpback whales, dolphins, porpoises and orcas. The cabins were very comfortable. The food was incredible. Janet is the queen of salads and every meal was delicious. Karen made sure every thing was perfect. The entire crew was so friendly and helpful. We took the northern route and plan on taking taking the southern route in the future.

We could not have been happier on our 5 day cruise. All the crew were very friendly and helpful. We were able to explore remote areas you could never get to on a big cruise ship. The meals were incredible and the cookies were far too tempting. This is the perfect tour for anyone who is interested in nature and several days of relaxation and pampering. The co-ordinates to their debarkation area in Menzies Bay for a GPS or map program are: 50.11976 N, 125.38659 W (Decimal), --or-- 50° 7' 11.14" N 125° 23' 11.72" W (Degrees, Minutes, Seconds )

Our adventures on this tour was fantastic .The entire staff on the vessel were involved in ensuring the trip was very well organized as well as the humpback whales, Orcas , seals, sea lions and grizzly bears who cooperated to provide excitement throughout the voyage. Once again our thanks to the crew who all went above and beyond ensuring our wonderful experience.
