The Inside Passage stretches from the north tip of Vancouver Island to Prince Rupert in Northern BC, through the protected waters of British Columbia’s Central and Northern Coastline. The Inside Passage gets her name from the relatively calm waters protected largely by a group of islands on the west of the 300 plus mile waterway. This makes the perfect route for a small vessel expedition cruise.
Twice a year High Seas Outfitters repositions The High Seas Drifter, our historic 64 foot mothership, from Campbell River to the Hartley Bay area in the Great Bear Rainforest. Want to experience one of the very best ways to see how immense and diverse the British Columbia Coast truly is? Join us in the Spring or Late Summer.
Teeming with marine life, fjords, inlets, historical coastal villages and First Nations culture – get an intimate look at the Inside Passage. The High Seas Drifter has been cruising this coastline for 80 years this summer, being aboard this incredible ship is like stepping back in time and something to be experienced in itself.
The Drifter gives us the opportunity to offer an expedition cruise for an intimate group of guests 2-6, to get up close and personal with the Inside Passage and the Great Bear Rainforest. Join our Crew as we take 6 days to cruise and explore. We will endeavour to cruise for half days, weather depending, and then go exploring in the afternoons on kayaks or on of our crew boats. Evenings are spent in protected areas at anchor while we dine and socialize on the
Drifter. This is a very special trip and one of our very favourites of the year!
