Life at Sea
The West Coast Experience will introduce students to the wild and wonderful world of life at sea, while discovering all that the Gulf Islands have to offer. Students will live aboard one of our sailboats for 5 days and 4 nights with a school chaperone and one of Simply Sailing's highly qualified instructors.
The Gulf Islands and Salish Sea are exploding with marine wildlife. These waters never fail to put on a show of seals, sea lions, dolphins and often whales. Each evening while anchored in a beautiful BC bay or Marina, the students will be able to explore tidal pools and even see the magical bioluminescence.
During the 5 Day Liveaboard, students will live, sail and eat meals together. Life at sea will expand existing friendships and create new ones. Each vessel will have a school chaperone and an experienced instructor on board to create a fun environment where students work together to keep the boat shipshape and work as a team. Friendships will be explored together.
