2017 Schedule and Pricing

Bluewater is launching a new sailing vessel this year! After a spring of rigorous testing, she will explore the waters of the Gwaii Hanaas National Park Reserve and then the Great bear Rainforest on the central coast of British Columbia in search of the all white spirit bear. Built locally, the new yacht will be the most breathtaking, elegant, efficient tour vessel on our coast - with less environmental impact. We are tremendously proud and look forward to hosting you on your next adventure.


2017 Brings great opportunities for discovery and adventure in majestic wilderness settings in Southeast Alaska and along BC's wild coast...
