Canada - yacht charter, tourist guide, descriptions, routes, photos
Canada is a country in North America, spreading from the Atlantic Ocean in the east to the Pacific in the west, and to the Arctic Ocean in the north. What greets visitors here is the unusually rich wildlife. The central sailing destination is situated in British Columbia, its west coast. It is perfect not only for offshore sailing, but also for surfing, canoeing, scuba-diving, fishing, skiing, mountain biking, or climbing.
In British Columbia, situated on the coast of the Pacific, the sailing season lasts all year long. It provides enough space for water tourism; a varied coastline, vicinity of dozens of smaller and bigger islands, and numerous marinas give a chance to escape from the civilization on one’s own yacht or motorboat. Owning a boat is a concept deeply embedded in people’s mentality in this part of Canada.
Desolation Sound is one of the most worth visiting inlets in the world. A network of water parks for sailors with delineated moorings and piers, countless islands, fiords, mountains that descend towards the sea and glaciers, as well as seals, otters, water birds, and schools of killer whales all make up this lovely and unforgettable landscape. It is such a diverse and bountiful water sound that even the most active sailors still discover new nooks and crannies here.
Although Canada is known for its long and severe winters, there is one place that is an exception to this general truth. It is the southern part of British Columbia, where Vancouver, among other cities, is situated. British Columbia, which high mountains separate from arctic areas, has a mild climate affected by the tides of the Pacific Ocean. In the coastal lowlands, average temperature in summer goes up to 24 °C, while in winter, it drops to 5 °C. The coast has largely rainy weather conditions (especially from early autumn until late spring) with average annual precipitation of 1100 mm. The peak of the sailing season is in July, August, and September.
A perfectly maintained and prepared yacht fleet, countless places of interest, and a wide range of charter bases will surely make the time spent under the sails a more attractive and pleasant experience. We can set sail on the cruise in Vancouver, Powell River, or Sidney.
