Vad du kommer att göra

Our trip will give you the opportunity to experience sailing a 40-foot sailboat while enjoying the unique natural surroundings of the BC Gulf Islands just minutes from downtown Victoria. Sailing from our mooring in Oak Bay, the trip will last 5 hours, making a loop to the Discovery and Chatham Islands. Although the winds are always different, we will try to sail as much as possible for sustainability and beauty. Our guests will have the opportunity to participate in the handling of the boat and learn to sail or improve their skills. I will instruct you on basic sailing skills, navigation, and boat handling. On board, you will be able to relax and enjoy the natural beauty of the surroundings and the sea, and of sailing in a huge open space of fresh-air while being rocked gently by the boat. Halfway through our trip, we will anchor in one of the pristine bays of the Chatham Islands or in Cadboro Bay and enjoy a lunch composed of quality local produce. You will then be able to explore the shoreline close up by rowing an inflatable or kayak, or just relax on-board rocking in a hammock on deck while being surrounded by nature, wildlife, and great views.
Other things to note
Our boat has two washrooms, a kitchen and two private cabins in addition to a large saloon in which you can relax. A 100% refund will be given if we can't sail due to bad weather or safety issues.

I grew up in British Columbia playing in the natural beauty of this coast while pursuing activities from sea kayaking to sailing. Having explored this beautiful coast for 18 years from Victoria to Alaska from the perspective of my three sailboats, today I would like to share this unique opportunity with others on my 40-foot sailboat. I hold the internationally recognized RYA Yachtmaster Offshore skipper certificate and I'm Transport Canada licensed to offer sailing instructions. I have skippered in the Mediterranean, the Caribbean and Northern Europe, and know BC has a unique natural splendor.

We had a wonderful time, Dominik and Anya were perfect hosts, their boat is beautiful, and very spacious. We would highly recommend to anyone looking for a unique experience on the water, it’s a really beautiful part of the world. Dominik was very happy to teach us different elements of sailing and get us involved, but there was no pressure if you wanted to sit back and relax. We had a lovely sail around the islands and stopped for lunch in a beautiful bay. Anya prepared a delicious 3 course meal, followed by a relaxed time in the bay taking in the sights. We had a wonderful time and thank Dominik and Anya for their hospitality, Best wishes Harriet and Cherry

Dominik and his wife were truly exceptional hosts. They went above and beyond on this sailing experience to ensure we were comfortable and happy while learning about the surrounding area and participating as much as we’d like with the sailing itself. We were able to see some seals and a bald eagle when we took the row boat out after anchoring/lunch. We are vegetarian/vegan and the food was absolutely stellar. The boat was beautiful and extremely clean. Overall, a lot of time and care was put into the experience and their passion for sailing and Victoria, BC made for a truly enjoyable and unique experience. We would highly recommend this experience for anyone who wants to see a more nautical side of the island.
