Have you ever had the urge to just get away from it all, not just to another villa, another beach or another Mediterranean island, but to really really get away from it all?
Sometimes it can be healthy to not just flatten the curve of your own boredom and stress, but also re-address how you holiday, why you holiday, and of course, where. Luckily for you, your Bluewater team
of relaxation specialists have the perfect treatment!
If you can imagine yourself silently anchored in an isolated bay, the sun on your face, with the North Pacific Ocean kissing the side of your superyacht and the melody of a tumbling waterfall in the background, then we’ve got a real treat for you; a luxury yacht charter
amongst our favourite spots on Vancouver Island, tailored to your own desires.
A region of Victoria in the Pacific Northwest, one of the finest cruising grounds on Earth and an area known for being "more British than the British", Vancouver Island is the largest island on the West coast of the Americas. You cannot only expect - but confidently demand - stunning panoramic vistas, ocean cruising and sunsets that will be etched in your mind forever.
A gem of the Salish sea, this huge and varied coastline hosts a treasure trove of adventure and relaxation for people who love life, especially life of the wild kind – and we don’t just mean clubs and bars, although there are plenty of those for the party animals amongst you. The pristine environment of Vancouver’s inlets, fjords and deep bays are teeming with a marine ecosystem abundant with wildlife, such as the pods of orcas hunting for food or the endangered southern resident killer whales whose population has dropped to just 75 individuals, along with the Chinook salmon they depend on for survival.
Amongst the valleys, rivers and coves you have the real possibility of spotting bears and sea otters, once teetering on the brink of extinction after years of being hunted for their fur, but now frolicking happily amongst the kelp enjoying their protected status.
Aside from the wildlife, the ‘farm to table’ food and the colorful towns, our favorite thing about cruising Vancouver Island are the inspiring place names, which will appeal to the inner pirate of any superyacht guest. Sail into Desolation Sound to marvel at secluded fjords and imposing mountains, or head east to trek the Juan de Fuca trail through ancient forests and onto the eerie caves of Mystic Beach, carved over millions of years by the tempestuous Pacific waves.
Vancouver island was described by its forefathers as “rich in gold, silver and pearls”. Whilst the gold rush may be long gone, your team at Bluewater are confident that the adventurers amongst you will find endless treasures and memories to cherish of your time in this unforgettable part of the world.
Our yacht charter specialists have decades of experience in bringing you luxury adventures at sea
, tailored to your own personal bucket list and tastes.
We are delighted to share this itinerary
of the Pacific Northwest and we can’t wait to hear from you!
