Sailing in Canada

Canada is known for the attractive cities such as Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver, for the vast prairies, the crystal clear waters of seas, lakes and rivers, and for a perfect sailing area. The second largest country in the world is bathed by the Pacific Ocean in the west, by the Arctic Ocean in the north and by the Atlantic Ocean to the east. Enjoy the different options for yacht charter and sailing holidays.

Discover the beautiful North American Pacific island of Vancouver Island, which is located in front of the giant metropolis of Vancouver. Five large fjord-like wetlands are located at the west coast, and on the northeast the largest lake, Ucluelet. A popular sailing area are the many islands and bays, which are located between the mainland and Vancouver Island. The beautiful scenery and enchanting wildlife will delight you.
