Individual traveler trips take place in June, September and October to the Gulf Islands, Desolation Sound and the Great Bear Rainforest. Included are all meals, use of the ship’s equipment at the crew’s discretion, and wine and beer with meals. Transportation to and from the vessel is not included.
