Description

Moderate activity

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

Experience the thrill of sailing the azure waters aboard the R. Tucker Thompson, a replica of a 19th century schooner that once sailed the North West American coast. You can preserve the tradition of tall ship sailing yourself by joining the crew. Don't worry, you'll be carefully matched to the job that best suits your level of ability. Whether your role involves trimming the sail, grinding the winch or simply sharing in the excitement, you're an integral part of the crew and it's a real adrenaline rush! If you'd rather, you may simply enjoy the action from the deck. As the wind gently blows you across the sea, hear stories of the Thompson Youth Program, local history or the area's conservation projects. Your skipper will anchor off a beautiful sheltered bay where you can step ashore and explore or take a swim while your barbeque lunch is prepared.
