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.

Fabulous crew who put safety and humour, as well as competence, at the forefront. The food was incredible - thanks to Janet, our chef, and Jackie, our steward, for making every meal a treat. We saw the real BC - work that drives our province - as well as the natural beauty. Orcas the last day, porpoises another, eagles, marine life, interesting stops along the way. This is a trip that you can do at any time in your life. The clientele was a little older but all so interesting. Not a trip if you need to do cardio every day, but for five days, wait and hit the gym when you get home! Every day was a gem.

We saw fantastic scenery with ample opportunities for coastal walking exploration plus a 4 X4 trip on forestry trails. The meals were healthy and beautifully proportioned and presented, and most importantly it was a wonderful casual and friendly atmosphere on board. Perry H.

It was a fantastic trip. Great scenery, lots of critters to see, wonderful food, and top notch staff. It was really fun to see a work boat in action and the staff were very open with explanations. Best cruise ever!!!

An excellent tour to explore, northwest of Campbell River, the maze of islands and inlets, visit logging camps, some small and large tourist resorts, historical settlements, while threading the waterways and rapids connecting them all. Aboard a large, stable working freight boat watch the very capable crew manoeuvre vehicles, excavators, fuel trucks and fork lifts to unload and load a wide variety of goods to various destinations. All the while enjoying the high quality meals, drinks and goodies prepared by the chef and Steward being delivered to your table while you meet and engage in conversations (and an occasional game of crib) with your fellow passengers
