Scenic Cruising on Queen Charlotte Sound
It's a short walk from the ship to your well-appointed catamaran, featuring an open deck area, an enclosed salon with large viewing ports, and restrooms. Set off into the calm waters of Queen Charlotte Sound, formed during the end of the last ice age, when water filled the valley almost 10,000 years ago. During the cruise, the captain recounts the history of the region-from Captain Cook's visits in the 18th century to tales of pioneer days. Stop to feed the famous pet fish at Double Cove and enjoy light refreshments.

What you will see along the way:
From the deck of the catamaran, admire the views of the sound's coves, bays, sandy beaches, lush forests, and colorful settlements that dot the coastline. The nutrient-rich waters range from turquoise to emerald and attract seals, seabirds and dolphins, including common, bottlenose and Hector's dolphins. Feed the famous pet fish at Double Cove, which include blue cod and mullet, and also the sneaky paradise ducks.

Snack:
Coffee and tea and a light refreshment are available on board.

Special Notes:
