Nanaimo Yacht Charters
Easy to schedule
This is an easy to schedule trip. It’s close to SF Bay and you only need one week of vacation and get to experience beautiful Fiords, crystal clear water, lots of Canadian wildlife and so much more…
We welcome you to the most convenient and central cruising location available on the entire BC coast. From the starting location in Stones Marina, Nanaimo you will feel that you are on an adventure sailing vacation minutes after departing. Sailing Vancouver Island and surrounding areas provide an unparalleled and world class Bare Boat Yacht Charter experience.
One of the finest sailing area in the world
The BC Gulf Islands and Washington’s San Juan Islands lie to the south, Vancouver and the Sunshine Coast is just east. Princess Louisa National Park, the magnificent Desolation Sound and the inside passage route to Alaska is north.
Year after year people return to this area to visit countless islands, private coves, safe anchorages and a variety of marinas that will make this an unforgettable experience.
Across the Straits of Georgia from Nanaimo up into Princess Louisa National Park and back
The "great and mighty people" welcome travelers from afar. Cosmopolitan, yet affordable, this is the ideal city to caste off a sailing adventure. Visit the waterfront and enjoy the sunset and local fare at a neighborhood restaurant while studying charts for the forthcoming passage. Bon Voyage.
Princess Louisa National Park
Author Erle Stanley Gardner says it all:
"There is a calm tranquility which stretches from the smooth surface of the reflecting waters straight up into infinity. The deep calm of eternal silence is disturbed only by the muffled roar of throbbing waterfalls as they plunge down from sheer cliffs. There is no scenery in the world that can beat it. Not that I've seen the rest of the world. I don't need to. I've seen Princess Louisa Inlet".
Breathtaking Chatterbox Falls marks the head of the inlet and these falls tumble 120 feet. This national park contains campsites, a ranger cabin, picnic shelter and toilets. For boaters there is a mooring buoy, stern pins, a boat dock and a dinghy dock. We are sure this will be a memorable charter experience as the scenery is unforgettable.
