Pacific Northwest / Alaska

Pacific Northwest yachting offers many options for your perfect charter, from a cruise around the beautiful San Juan/Canadian Gulf islands to a voyage along the Pacific coast up the Inside Passage of Alaska.

The scenery in this region is unlike anything you’ve encountered before. You are likely to see Bald eagles, foxes, pygmy deer, otters, Dall’s porpoises, seals and of course the magnificent Orca.

In the San Juans, don’t miss the popular Friday Harbor or Roche Harbor; take the time to get to some of the less frequently visited islands such as Sucia and Matia. Victoria, the capital of nearby British Columbia, Canada, is a crown jewel on the southern tip of Vancouver Island. Boasting one of the most beautiful harbors in the Pacific Northwest, it’s a terrific destination and perfect jumping off point as you explore the serene and pristine beauty of the Gulf Islands.

Join other world travelers and visit Butchart Gardens, with over 25 acres of flowers and plantings representing four distinct landscaping styles — Japanese, English, Italian, and the unique Sunken Garden, complete with lighted fountains and waterfalls. A small cove located on the eastern shore of Tod Inlet provides great anchorage and access to the gardens. You can even enjoy the nightly fireworks and concert in the park while comfortably seated aboard your yacht! Rocky shorelines and miles of beaches invite you to paddle a kayak to view tidal pools teeming with starfish and sea anemones in every conceivable color. Distant silhouetted islands illuminated by the setting sun offer views beyond anything you have ever seen.

The Inside Passage, stretching from Puget Sound, Washington, to Juneau, Alaska is one of the world’s longest protected marine waterways. Brown bears and black bears patrol the shore. Sea otters feed in the kelp beds. Tidewater glaciers discharge great minarets of ice into the sea. Humpback whales spout and blow. Feathered forests of hemlock, cedar, and spruce enrich intimate islands and the lower slopes of snow-capped mountains. Add to that a colorful human tapestry- the nautical towns of Ketchikan, Sitka, Juneau, Petersburg, Haines, Skagway — and the Inside Passage becomes complete.

The rugged dramatic coastline of the Pacific Northwest offers much for your ideal yacht charter; nature will surround you as you cruise in comfort aboard your luxury yacht.

Alaska — this is the place that ignites the imagination.

Alaska — this is the place that ignites the imagination. Watch from the comfortable deck of your vessel floating in a pristine blue sea as expansive views of majestic peaks in the distance unfold; enjoy clear blue sky by day and countless stars by night. Glimpse the magic of the Aurora Borealis and the breathtaking breach of a whale — nature’s largest creature. What’s your dream?

Will you cruise the Inside Passage or the Gulf of Alaska? The choice is yours — design your own itinerary and explore both! Tell your captain and crew what you want to see and do. It’s your cruise and your dream to fulfill.
