Victoria sailing lessons and tours

Join your host and skipper Darren Tomlin for memorable Victoria sailing lessons and tours.

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.

Thanks for a fabulous cruise on the Desiderata with great food and even whale sighting!” Carolyn & Glen, Ontario
