Perfect trip, beautiful Vancouver
Kay_D, 11-11-2022
This was a perfect trip on the beautiful harbour in Vancouver. We were provided with drinks and snack and the most beautiful scenery, and fortunately for us, the weather was perfect. We also had the please of meeting Frederick the Boat Kitty.
Next time we return to Vancouver we will certainly do this trip again as we just loved being on the water, without having to do the work. Thank you
Beautiful and unique afternoon on the water

We had an amazing afternoon sail with Chris, Michelle, and Frederick! My husband has some sailing experience and was excited to try his hand at manoeuvring their beautiful sailboat, while the rest of us enjoyed a relaxing and comfortable ride. Don’t miss booking this experience.
Highlight of our Vacation!!

We had such a wonderful time! The sailboat was beautiful and immaculate! Chris and Michelle were such a lovely couple. They were very fun and friendly and great hosts. If we could have we would have sailed away the rest of our trip! But alas all good things must come to an end! They supplied alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks and a nice selection of snacks! We highly recommend this excursion and we will be back!!
A Most Enjoyable Day!

Great day out on English Bay. Captain Chris, First Mate Michelle and Senior Officer Frederick (Frederick_the_boat_Kitty) were wonderful. Sailed under the Lions gate bridge which was built by the Guinness Family. Very relaxing and peaceful!
Just do it

Chris and Michelle were fantastic. My partner and I had a full capacity crowd with us on the trip and never felt squeezed for space. We were able to enjoy the front of the boat and the waves splashing the hull. Neither of us had ever been sailing and the trip exceeded all of our expectations. We are ready to buy a sailboat.
