Smell the gentle ocean breeze as it lures you away from the dock through Victoria’s bustling inner harbour and out into the beautiful Strait of Juan de Fuca aboard Tall Ship Thane. All guests young and old are encouraged to participate in sailing; so tug on the sheets that haul the sails. As we begin silently swooshing through the ocean, become mesmerized by the magnificent snow-capped Olympic Mountains and the majesty of the City of Victoria. Relax and savor your picnic or a sip of wine as we keep our eyes peeled for some of BC’s world famous killer whales, or sea lions and bald eagles. Swap tales with other guests and try to stump the crew with questions, we’re rich with history. And if we don’t really know the answer, be prepared for a wee tale!

Captain Rob is very knowledgeable and enlists his guests to join in the experience of sailing. Lots to learn and understand while at the same time highly enjoyable experience.

Had a great time with a family group of 7, some local and some visiting. The crew was excellent and interacted well with everyone. Some got a bit of experience with the sails, etc. Very friendly, laid back, no hussle or upsell.

We could pick you up there if need be, however; there are shuttles that goes from the Cruise Ship Terminal to the inner harbour. If you get off across from the Empress Hotel we are right there. Unfortunately, we do not have... More
