Victoria sailing lessons and tours
Join your host and skipper Darren Tomlin for memorable Victoria sailing lessons and tours.
- Select afternoon sailing trips from Sidney BC (12 noon departure),
- a sunset dinner cruise (4pm departure)
- or one of the overnight Gulf Islands packages to Salt Spring Island or Pender Island.
These are enjoyed in Darren’s well-equipped sleek “Desiderata“, a 37 foot sailboat moored at Port Sidney marina. This elegant vessel sleeps 4 – 7 in private staterooms.
Sailing instruction is so much fun in the beautiful Canadian Gulf Islands. You’ll learn safety procedures and basic sailing skills: furling the sails, tacking, steering with the sails and engine, using GPS and charts: all hands-on.
You’ll explore islands and secluded coves, fishing or crabbing hotspots. Darren’s skills as a professional chef result in tasty dishes prepared in the galley.
