British Columbia's Yachter's Paradise
The British Columbia Yachter's Paradise cruise aboard the 22-guest Safari Quest sails round-trip from Seattle north to British Columbia's best. George Vancouver, an English sea captain and well-known explorer, arrived in this area in the early 1790s. After weeks of sailing in the open ocean his mood needed a lift, and when he entered Puget Sound, the very waters that Safari Quest travels through, he was transformed by the striking, serene beauty of the land and seascapes that surrounded him.
Today, find the same mountains, inlets and islands that so inspired Captain Vancouver. Here, orca whales move silently through the water in search of salmon. Seals and sea lions lounge on rocky islets, and black bears and deer flourish in the deep, evergreen forests. Spectacular snow-capped mountains fall steeply to the waters of the Sound
