Maple Leaf Adventures has been offering natural and cultural history cruises aboard the classic schooner Maple Leaf and converted tugboat Swell since 1986. Our trips are designated a Signature Experience of Canada by the country's federal tourism organization. A trip on Maple Leaf has been named by Frommer’s travel guide as one of Canada's 6 "Best Travel Experiences". Our multi-day excursions offer guests the opportunity to experience intimately the most beautiful places on the B.C. and Alaska coast, in the company of expert naturalists or historians, crew and chef. Destinations include: Alaska - Great Bear Rainforest - Gulf Islands National Park - Haida Gwaii (Queen Charlotte Islands) - Vancouver Island. As a longtime practitioner of ecotourism, Maple Leaf pioneered travel in the Great Bear Rainforest and northwestern Vancouver Island, and has made significant contributions to conservation on the coast.
