If you would like to try cruising before you commit to a multi-day cruise or if you have limited time available then try our Short Cruise.
Helmsman Cruise and Learn offers 3 hour cruises from Genoa Bay on a on-request-basis. You’ll learn about boat safely, sailing terms, and points of sail while cruising across Cowichan Bay and out into Sansum Narrows.
Specific destinations will change depending upon the wind and current conditions but this cruise always offers a great day on the water!
Sightings of seals, sea lions, eagles, osprey, and a multitude of other bird life are seen regularly. On some occasions we’ve even seen orca!
Short cruises depart from Genoa Bay Marina at 10:00 a.m.. Seating is limited to 4 adults per cruise. Reservations are required but last minute seatings are occasionally available.
