Cruising aboard a historic vessel along the picturesque coast of northern B.C. and Alaska is the kind of bucket list item Maple Leaf Adventures offers.

The award-winning Victoria travel company will explain their boutique expedition cruises as well as introduce their new classic tugboat, Swell, in Oak Bay March 4 and 5.

Maple Leaf’s trips feature small ships, anchoring at remote islands and fjords, frequent shore trips in natural habitat, and wildlife viewing guided by experts. Coastal culture is also a feature, as are the naturalists and gourmet food on each trip.

Destinations include areas where large ships cannot go, including Haida Gwaii, the Great Bear Rainforest, Gulf Islands National Park Reserve and the wild Alaska inside passage.

Sessions run March 4 from 3 to 4:30 p.m. and March 5 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at Oak Bay library. Other presentations are being scheduled, so call for availability. RSVPs are required, due to limited seating: info@MapleLeafAdventures.com or 250-386-7245.
