Yacht Charters Vancouver Island
Island Cruising is Sunsail’s first Preferred Partner and the undisputed charter industry leader in the Vancouver Island cruising region.
Cheryl Powell, Chief Operating Officer of Sunsail, noted, “Sunsail Preferred Partners are the premier providers of yacht charter services in their respective cruising grounds. Those selected for the program must bring years of industry experience and adhere to rigid specifications set out by Sunsail for customer service and yacht maintenance. Island Cruising met all of our criteria and their leading reputation has been solidified by over 30 years of excellence in customer service. We are pleased that Island Cruising has elected to be our first Sunsail Preferred Partner.”
Reflecting on the newly establish partnership, Larry Meyer of Island Cruising commented, "We are very excited to join the Sunsail family through The Sunsail Preferred Partner program. It was a natural fit with Sunsail given their stellar reputation as the premier yacht charter company. We are ecstatic to offer the waters of the Pacific Northwest Gulf Islands, San Juan Islands and the world renowned Desolation Sound to Sunsail’s global customer base. We are equally happy to provide access for our local sailors to Sunsail’s more than 30 destinations around the world.”
Pacific Northwest - Sailing Paradise
The Pacific Northwest is rated as one of the world’s top sailing destinations, and for good reason! This region offers something for everyone; charterers can enjoy active pursuits such as biking, kayaking, and hiking, while also tasting superb farm fresh cuisine and locally produced wines.
From Island Cruising’s HOME base in Sidney on Vancouver Island, over 2,000 islands are accessible throughout both Canada and U.S. waters, specifically The Gulf Islands, Sunshine Coast, Desolation Sound and San Juan Islands. Sailors can expect to cruise alongside pods of whales and dolphins, as well as spot all types of wildlife from bald eagles to grizzly bears. There are waterfalls, snowcapped mountains, leafy forests and beaches.
For cosmopolitan sophistication, culinary flair and a hip artsy scene, Vancouver is the place to be. It is also home to Vancouver International Airport, which is served by over 60 airlines connecting travelers to more than 95 destinations in Canada, the U.S. and around the world. From here, a ferry transfer to Vancouver Island offers a pleasant introduction to this beautiful cruising ground. The Island Cruising fleet available for Sunsail charters will initially consist of monohulls between 31- to 50-feet from Beneteau, Jeanneau, Bavaria, Dufour, and Hanse and our Catamaran range by LEOPARD
Sunsail offers a wide choice of sailing vacations with over 1,200 yachts in 34 locations worldwide. Alongside Yacht Charter and Flotilla Sailing vacations, Sunsail also offers Beach Clubs, Sailing Schools, Corporate Events, and Sunsail Racing. Sunsail was founded in 1974 and is a proud member of TUI Travel® Group.
We are your Canadian dealer for the Leopard catamaran.
Evolving from 40 years of customer feedback, we pooled our expertise with builders Robertson and Caine to design the Leopard line of blue water cruising catamarans. As the Canadian dealer for Leopard Catamarans, we're proud to say that over 1200 Leopard cats have now sailed more than 11 million miles and the world’s largest oceans.
