Charter our classic Chris-Craft Constellation motor yacht for up to 12 passengers and come explore the blue waters of the Howe Sound with us! Board the charming Yacht with rich mahogany wood finish, in downtown Vancouver. Be welcomed by our friendly crew offering gourmet coffee & tea, famous Montreal bagels, delicious muffins and fresh seasonal fruits. Make your way transiting under the Lions Gate Bridge, seeing the stunning Vancouver downtown skyline from the water. Discover British Columbia’s beautiful seaside landmark as you cruise past Point Atkinson Lighthouse, where we have a good chance of seeing orca whales, humpback whales and grey whales.
Head up the rugged shoreline alongside the famous Sea to Sky Highway up to Squamish located at the northern tip of the Howe Sound and surrounded by mountains like the Stawamus Chief, a huge granite monolith. You’ll meet your driver at the dock who will transport you by Mercedes Van to the National Historic Site of the Britannia Mine Museum. There you will have a guided underground tour by mine train, into what was the largest copper mine in the British Empire. At the Museum you will also have a chance to take part in some panning for gold!
The next stop on your journey will bring you to the base of the Sea to Sky Gondola. Take in aerial views of the scenery during the 10-minute gondola ascent to a viewing platform set high above Howe Sound. Cross the Sky Pilot suspension bridge for a 360-degree perspective on the mountain terrain from hundreds of feet above the ground.
Continue to the nearby Shannon Falls BC’s third highest waterfall. Take a 10-minute stroll through the Provincial Park to view the towering waterfall cascading down a series of cliffs.
After enjoying the hotspots and must see’s along the Sea to Sky Highway, we will lift up the anchor and set sail back to Vancouver arriving around 6:30pm. Wow, what a day!
