Accommodations

S/V Island Solitude
Location
British Columbia

Newly built in 2018, this spacious, finely appointed yacht was crafted by a team of British Columbia boatbuilders headed by legendary Forbes Cooper, who has completed some 8,500 yachts. At 83 feet long, S/V Island Solitude is 30% larger than our previous sailboat used for this trip, with a faster hull speed and greener, more efficient operations—yet the passenger capacity is still capped at just 12, meaning lots more room for guests. A host of upgrades means exceptional comfort aboard the Island Solitude: All six cabins have en suite bathrooms and are double the size of the previous cabins. All beds are floor-level (no upper berths) with a standard single mattress. A second stairway aft leads up to the deck, in addition to a stairway up to the wheelhouse area, which provides an open, well-lit sit-down dining space for the entire group, with 360-degree views. An additional stairway leads down to the stern boarding platform with aft-facing seats for those waiting to disembark for shore excursions. Headroom everywhere has been increased.

Owned and operated by a company that has set the standard for marine ecotourism along the BC coast for 40 years, Island Solitude provides sets a new standard for environmentally conscious operation. The engines exceed EPA emission standards, while the yacht’s new hull design allows for more efficient travel under sail. Sewage is treated organically with a combination of electricity and salt.
S/V Island Roamer
Location
British Columbia, Canada

S/V Island Roamer is a custom 68-foot ketch whose design, safety, privacy and comfort make her ideally suited for intimate exploration of British Columbia's protected coastal waters. The vessel features seven double-occupancy guest cabins, three bathrooms with hot showers, a spacious lounge with extensive library, and a well-equipped galley in which our onboard cook prepares hearty and savory meals. On deck, a large covered seating area provides shelter in any weather. A certified Canadian Ministry of Passenger Transport vessel, Island Roamer has all the safety equipment, electronic navigation aids and features you would expect from a vessel of her standard.  On this trip, although the ship holds 14 guests plus crew, we limit the group size to just 12 travelers. Even so, please sign onto this adventure knowing that space aboard a sailing vessel such as this is very limited, both in the cabins and in common areas.
MStar Hotel
Location
Kitimat, BC

Before our Inside Passage marine adventure begins, spend the night in Kitimat at the stylish, contemporary boutique MStar Hotel, optimally located in the heart of the city center. Kitimat overlooks the rain forest-blanketed mountains, while nearby Giant Spruce Park holds the largest living Sitka spruce tree in British Columbia. MStar’s 42 guest rooms feature clean-lined, modern decor in neutral tones, and amenities include a 42-inch flat screen TV, high-speed Wi-Fi, MP3/iPhone dock, writing desk, Keurig coffee machine, mini-fridge and microwave. Guests enjoy complimentary snacks and beverages, with free tasting in the lobby each evening. Dedicated to eco-friendly practices and community support, MStar Hotel donates used linens and soaps to local shelters and the Humane Society while striving to operate 90% paperless, using e-services as much as possible for internal messages and guest receipts.

Shearwater Lodge
Location
Bella Bella, British Columbia

The Shearwater is a high-end fishing and ecotourism resort at the "Gateway to the Great Bear Rainforest" on British Columbia's Central Coast. Situated across from Bella Bella on Denny Island, it enjoys a serene setting of exceptional beauty, hugging a protected saltwater channel overlooking forested islands and mountains. The Shearwater Lodge offers the resort's premier accommodations, housing 26 guests. Spacious yet cozy rooms have en suite bathrooms, extra-large beds, television and coffee maker. Evening turn-down service is available. The lodge's lounge and dining room center on a dramatic river rock fireplace, the perfect atmosphere in which to enjoy executive chef-prepared meals accompanied by complimentary fine wines.
