Locals, Join our "Standby" List:
For those on their own, we try to put together groups of individuals for day and half day sails. If you happen to live in the Victoria area (or convenient to it) and and can sail at short notice, our "Stand- By" List will save you 10% and get you sailing!
1. We will also need your telephone number and email and the days and times you prefer to sail.
2. These trips are subject to availability, and require the minimum of three persons (including yourself) for us to sail aboard either Ibis our Beneteau sloop or Blackfish, our Trimaran.
Second Boat Alternative:
Note that in addition to Ibis, our 35 foot Beneteau, the above Standby discount will also apply to our newly acquired Blackfish, an F27 Corsair Trimaran,
This 27 foot Trimaran of ours is a fun and stable boat for the adventurous at heart. This vessel (shown below) is not as comfortable and roomy inside as our Beneteau sloop. However, what she lacks in this department she makes up for in speed and excitement, and lots of deck space to lay out. Blackfish also sails out of Oak Bay, near the same marina.
Our trimaran is capable of over 20 knots speed when pressed. But no fear. with novice sailors we stay well below this speed. No experience is required. We will show you what to do. But you have to be nimble and prepared to get wet when out on the nets and one of the amas (floats) start rising.
Philosophy: Blackfish is a proud member of Earth Foot, a society dedicated to low-impact eco-tourism - sail and tour operations which are owner-operated and respectful of our wonderful and fragile marine environment.
