Winter holidays are arguably the best, wherever you come from in the world, the run up to Christmas can often be a little bit of a drag, what better way to enter the spirit of the season than a holiday in Vancouver. Or better still, spending Christmas aboard one of Nanaimo Yacht Charter’s beautiful boats, exploring the region and all it has to offer at this time of the year. The weather at this time of year is just what you need to get you feeling Christmassy, with flurries of snow and temperatures ranging between 6 to 10 degrees Celsius. You will undoubtedly enjoy days of beautiful sunshine, which brings out the gorgeous white of the snow surrounding you as the sunbeams dance across the landscape. There is no scenery in the world which compares to that of British Columbia at this time of year, and nowhere in the world feels more Christmassy either! Picture the scene… you and your family are on board one of our luxury yachts, the radio is on, playing your favourite Christmas tune, the kids are snuggled under the blanket watching the waves crash by (and keeping an eye out for the whales of course!), […]

On a Vancouver boat charter you might not really know what to expect of Canadian cuisine, it might be you are just thinking of the stereotypical crispy bacon and sweet maple syrup! However on a Vancouver boat charter there really is a plethora of quirky culinary traditions to enjoy, which the Canadians are very proud of. The Canadians do in fact have plenty of imagination and an endless variety of ingredients across the country that they are very proud of from the smoked deli meats in Montreal to world famous potatoes from Prince Edward’s Island. So embrace the variety of cuisine and huge choice of local foods on offer to you on your Vancouver boat charter and enjoy! Are there any ‘Canadian’ foods? When does food actually become ‘Canadian’? Well it helps if the food has actually been invented in Canada rather than imported. It has been said that the Quebecers invented ‘poutine’ a popular local food, and popular in Toronto is ‘sushi pizza’ but whilst this strictly speaking isn’t a Canadian food, it has definitely been embraced wholeheartedly by the Canadian sushi lovers! Eat local Canadians are big fans of embracing all things local, and they also like to […]

Whilst boating in the beautiful waters around Vancouver Island and Nanaimo with young ones, there is the possibility that you will need more than just the stunning scenery, beautiful marine life, and a turn at the wheel to amuse them. For a successful trip, you need to prepare for the worst… a bored child aboard your vessel. Here we will look at some of the best water activities for you to undertake with your young ones whilst holidaying on one of our yachts. 1. Boating & Sailing No matter what age your young shipmates are, there will be a degree of sailing you can teach them. There is a lot to sailing a yacht, and there are bits and pieces you can get them to do to assist you. Children and young people love feeling needed, and feeling useful, as well as feeling a sense of responsibility for something. So why not use that to your advantage? You could teach them to tie knots, get them to tie down or tidy away any loose items on board, maybe even get them to use the radio. Kids love binoculars, so you could make them look out for an hour or so […]

Nanaimo
On our 14 day Desolation Sound package, you get to charter your boat through to the stunning Princess Louisa National Park – a gem of the Nanaimo region. The Princess Louisa National Park was established on July the 24th, 1965 – over fifty years ago. It spans 964 hectares and boasts mountains, forests, and intricate shorelines – perfect for waterborne exploration. Glaciers from thousands of years ago helped form the majestic granite gorges that frame the park. Mountains tipped with snow emerge out of the sea and stretch to heights of over 2000 meters. The oceans surrounding this impressive landscape could be mistaken for a lake due to their placidity. The famous Princess Louisa Inlet do move with the tides, but currents are virtually non-existent except for the Malibu Rapids that create the entrance to the inlet. The inlet is often referred to as Suivoolot by the natives, which translates to mean sunny and warm.The waters in this part of the park which is almost completed enclosed, are around 1000 feet deep, and half a mile wide. The marine side of the park is managed by the Princess Louisa International Society in cooperation with BC (British Columbia) Parks. The society […]

If you are planning on doing some sailing in Vancouver this year and not sure when the best time of year to go is, well read on to discover more about the climate in Canada and what you might expect during the different seasons while sailing in Vancouver. Canadian Climate Canada is often thought of as having cold weather and snow, but in actual fact the climate in Canada is as diverse as it’s landscape!

Gulf Island: The Chartering Romance Gulf Island: The Chartering Romance Gulf Island
Nanaimo
A hassle-free getaway for two through the heart of the gulf islands. When one thinks of the LOVEBOAT, the image of a luxury cruise liner with lovers promenading about the decks comes to mind. For my husband and I, it was the idea of chartering a sailboat to explore the Gulf Islands on a four-day getaway just for two; a chance to relax and re-connect to ourselves, each other and to the sea. After dropping off our young children at Nana’s and heading south to Nanaimo, Greg and I are giddy like two teenagers alone for the first time. Our station wagon is packed with crab traps, gear and provisions as we drive to Stones Marina in Nanaimo on Vancouver Island. We’re chartering with Nanaimo Yacht Charters and Sailing School, located in a convenient and central location to the Gulf Islands, and a direct flight or ferry from Vancouver. Within minutes of pulling into the main dock’s unloading zone, we are met by friendly staff member Trevor Matthew, a certified instructor, who promptly leads us down the marina to our gorgeous Beneteau 331, Kala Kala. Unzipping the fully enclosed cockpit cover, past the binnacle instrument pod and steering wheel, we […]
