We went out for an amazing day trip with Peter this August. It was the best money we spent on our trip to Bella Coola, Port McNeill, and Tofino. We have a son on the spectrum and he won't go on our riverboat but he was happy to try sailing. Peter was amazing with him! He explained to him what would happen when we started sailing and our son was thrilled to steer the sailboat. You can see how engaged Peter is while showing him the basics of sailing in our picture. He is a first-class individual and this trip is worth every penny spent!

We recently had the opportunity to experience an 8 day adventure exploring the Great Bear Rainforest and the coastal fjords of BC’s coast. Captain Peter (Ragnar) and the Seawolf were the base of our operations as we moved from secluded bay to secluded bay. From humpbacks and dolphins, to fishing for dinner, to lunch on a distant beach every day was a new adventure. Peter’s calm demeanor and extensive sea knowledge made this adventure a must repeat as there is so much more to explore. Being new to sailing and helming the boat with full sails was an experience we won’t soon forget. Highly recommend extending the base trip (6 days) to 8 so that you have time in the morning to relax and beachcomb more before heading to the next day’s anchorage. Till next time 👍👍

We had an amazing time sailing with Pete. Some of the highlights included: - Natural hot springs - Spotting a whale - We got to sail at max heel - Swimming in crystal blue water - Exploring land and finding a 1500 year old cedar tree Pete's a real gem and will make sure you have a good time.

We had an extremely fun time spending the day with Pete. He had tea and pancakes for us when we arrived and took off to check out the beautiful fjords of Bella Coola, seeing a porpoise along the way! We got to hike to Big Cedar while he made us a tasty lunch and then we got to enjoy the hot springs all to ourselves. It got very windy at that point and Pete got to let us experience the full fun of really sailing. Pete is quite the character and we highly recommend adventuring with him!

It was a toss up between a day trip that was described as " a taste" or two days with a night on the boat that was described as, "an experience". I opted for the experience and have no regrets! Before we left the harbor we had pulled and set crab traps and seen the tail of a big whale! My smile was ear to ear. We cruised to a quiet bay and watched the most beautiful blonde faced grizzly, kayaked the estuary, basked in the warmth of a natural hot spring and then dined on crab. Snuggled into the forward cabin for a peaceful night on board. I had never been on a ocean sail boat and this trip pretty much ticked all the boxes. My one complaint is that the trip was to short! A return trip is always the highest recommendation. Already booked for six night next May! Thank you Peter for a very memorable adventure.
