$69 for Three-Hour Sail for Two ($138 Value)

The captain and crew encourage passengers to bring a picnic and drinks aboard for the three-hour sail, which glides by sights such as Fisgard Lighthouse and Esquimalt Lagoon. Sailors may also glimpse wildlife such as killer whales, sea lions, and bald eagles during the trip. Each three-hour sail requires no passenger minimum, and up to three trips depart daily. Launch times vary based on weather and special events.

A 3-Hour Sail

Captain Lenard M. Pearson and his crew greet passing ships in a strange way—they fire a cannon at them. Among the many details of tall ship Thane—a 55-foot gaff-rigged fetch constructed of salvaged building materials—are its working cannons. With a flash of fire, a plume of smoke, and a very loud noise, the captain says hello to neighbouring vessels and makes sure no one on board has fallen asleep.

In addition to the cannon fire, Captain Pearson and his crew find other theatrical ways to engage guests, encouraging them to help out by hauling the sails or riding the bowsprit. Groups may also drag a fishing a line or trap crabs, depending on season. The crew encourages passengers to relax with their picnics and drinks while they take in sights that may range from pods of killer whales to the snow-dusted peaks of the Olympic Mountains. Along with bringing parties up to close to such sights, the captain also shares stories about the area's marine history, geology, and wildlife. Crew members happily provide guests with coolers, ice, glasses, and bottle openers for their drinks, and encourage responsible and respectful imbibing.

Lots of fun, but bring a sweater or coat, even on Warm Summer days it's cool off the coast of Victoria!!!
