Smell the gentle ocean breeze as it lures you away from the dock through Victoria’s bustling inner harbour and out into the beautiful Strait of Juan de Fuca aboard Tall Ship Thane. All guests young and old are encouraged to participate in sailing; so tug on the sheets that haul the sails. As we begin silently swooshing through the ocean, become mesmerized by the magnificent snow-capped Olympic Mountains and the majesty of the City of Victoria. Relax and savor your picnic or a sip of wine as we keep our eyes peeled for some of BC’s world famous killer whales, or sea lions and bald eagles. Swap tales with other guests and try to stump the crew with questions, we’re rich with history. And if we don’t really know the answer, be prepared for a wee tale!

3 hours, about 2.5 under sail, a not insubstantial 58' Ketch, you can help raise sails and get in touch with your inner nautical self (c'mon you know you have one). This is an immaculate and interesting craft. Great crew and an interesting sail. Really...More

We could pick you up there if need be, however; there are shuttles that goes from the Cruise Ship Terminal to the inner harbour. If you get off across from the Empress Hotel we are right there. Unfortunately, we do not have... More
