About the Aurora Explorer
The Aurora Explorer is a 135-foot landing craft that transports a wide variety of heavy equipment and general freight.
We just returned from our 5 day tour of the Broughton Archipelago. Stunning scenery, incredible food, and fabulous small cruise experience. Such a relaxing atmosphere, with the opportunity for up close experiences like actual landings on remote sites on the coast. You sure don’t get opportunities like this on big cruise ships. This was our 2nd trip on the Aurora Explorer,looking forward to another in the future. We highly recommend Marine Link Tours!
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 )
Loved getting to the remote working BC coastline on this freight ship. Quiet, peaceful and full of nature's wonders.
So much fun. The best of small boat sailing. 2nd tour with these folks. Great food; great crew. Lovely scenery.
Most unique experience on the coast!
