"I love the fact that there are activities for all levels of ability and fitness. No pressure or intimidation. Everything I hate about “big” cruises is absent here. "
— Bernadette R., Orlando, CA (Washington 2015)

ENJOY DRAMATIC COASTAL SCENERY 

Explore Washington’s old-growth rainforest, winding channels, National Parks, and the San Juan archipelago. Or opt for a yachters’ paradise on both sides of the border—Canada and the US—charming seaside towns, Princess Louisa Inlet, High Tea in Victoria, and the San Juan Islands. With either, wilderness and exploration highlight the region's most dramatic coastal scenery.
