Our very knowledgeable skipper can take you to destinations like Desolation Sound, the Gulf Islands, Howe Sound and the majestic Princess Louisa inlet.


Along the way you will encounter many varieties of marine life such as seals, eagles and maybe a pod of Orcas (killer whales). We have encountered schools of Pacific white-sided dolphin who played in our bow waves and all around the vessels.
Activities you can enjoy along our journey are swimming, snorkeling, fishing, hiking and kayaking.
If you would like to learn how to sail, you are more than welcome to take the helm and turn her into the wind, fill the sail and feel the freedom. We have a saying at Orca Wind Sail Charters "you can take the helm or just relax".

Culinary  Sailing  Adventure

We now also offer our clients the opportunity to have an Executive Culinary Chef sail with us on trips of 2 days or more. Freshly caught West Coast seafood and in season vegetables will be prepared in the most decadent manner one can only dream of. Our award winning Okanagan wines and some of the most breathtaking scenery our coast has to offer will make your sailing adventure truly a trip to remember.

The Chef will also share her special recipes and desserts and teach you how to prepare your own spectacular appetizers and dinners for your home. Her creations will include breakfast and lunch which will make you anticipate the dinners all the more. We will supply a full menu opinion prior to departure to ensure we meet your desires.

Spa Sail

We offer the most unique Spa package you will ever experience! Just imagine being pampered by qualified massage therapists and estheticians for 4 hours on a sailboat with Howe Sound as your view... You will receive a 45 minute full body massage followed by a pedicure or manicure for 4 ladies. A perfect wedding package or a chance to get away and enjoy some quality time with friends.

West Coast Dinner Sail

 You may wish to try our twilight sail and dinner cruise. You will depart from scenic Horseshoe Bay at 6pm to catch the late afternoon winds. We will anchor in a small bay where you will have an opportunity to watch the spectacular sunset on the coastal mountains of Howe Sound. One of the many amazing menus will be prepared for up to 6 of you by our expert galley chefs. All you do is bring your beverages of choice and just sit back and enjoy nature at her finest! We had such a great time on your sailboat Thursday evening, the sunset, the amazing salmon dinner was something we will not forget for some time.

We shall book your dinner sailing trip again and tell our friends.
Thanks, Vic Vic Harrison, Surrey, BC
