Interested in learning a little more about sailing? Or just want to head out for a cruise in English Bay? I'm happy to share my knowledge of sailing with you and enjoy some fun times on the water. This is a great way to see Vancouver from a whole new perspective. I am a laid-back & easy-going captain, so feel free to get in touch and let me know what type of day trip you're interested in and we can make it happen. Sample Trips 1) False Creek Motor Tour: Short motor in False Creek taking in the sights of downtown Vancouver from Sunset Beach to Science World. Potential stop-in at Granville Island to grab some lunch or do some shopping. 2) English Bay Sailing Tour: 2 to 4 hour sailing trip in English Bay. Hone your sailing skills, learning key sailing terminology while enjoying the peace of travelling using wind power alone. Potential to anchor up by Spanish Banks to enjoy the sunset. 3) Day trip to Bowen Island: Full day trip. Get ready for an adventure as we cross English Bay, past Lighthouse Point and over to Snug Cove on Bowen Island. In Snug Cove, there are plenty of good options for places to eat and a short walk to stretch your legs. Howe Sound's surrounding majestic mountains are sure to please. Discounted rates for 4+ hour trips. A bluetooth speaker for your music will be provided. Lunch can also be provided upon special request.

    We had an awesome time with Captain Keven. The weather wasn't ideal but we made the best of it, you just need to go with the flow and enjoy the experience. We really enjoyed our conversations as he has extensive knowledge of the ocean and sailing and gave us some great advice and insight as we look to buy our first boat. I am sure we will be seeing him again!

    We had a great time seeing the sites with Keven. He was easy to talk to, knowledgeable, had good music and the boat was well kept and comfortable. He even dropped us off closer to the hotel so we didn’t have to take an Uber. We would definitely recommend him and do another sail next time in Vancouver. We got lucky weather wise. The weather and winds were 5 stars too!
