It is the largest island in Canada with the second highest population density. The island is eminently positioned and the clear blue skies coupled with the calm water make for a perfect Vancouver Island yacht vacation. The island is also known for its vast and deep waters.

The island has a stunning topography to explore consisting of mountain ranges and natural forests. The Golden Hinde Mountain stands at 2,195 meters above sea level and it is one of the highest elevations in Canada. From your Vancouver Island yacht you can enjoy a fantastic view of the inlets, fjords and deep bays teeming with wildlife.

Apart from the deep blue seas and the mountainous regions you can also include a visit to the popular Red Cedar, Garry Oak, Manzanita and Douglas Fir forests in your Vancouver Island yacht charter itinerary. These dense forests are normally located in the less cold regions situated in the central, western and northern sides of the island. In these lush green forests you will be able to see some of the most unique species such as Roosevelt, Elk and Marmot.

Canada luxury yacht holiday around the Vancouver Island offers an entire range of experiences that you can enjoy on your yacht vacation. The climate is one of the mildest in Canada with summer temperatures averaging between 20 and 22 degrees. The islands come under the direct influence of precipitation and it is because of this that the region experiences a variation in climates between the west coast and east coast. There is significant rain during the seasons of autumn and winter and snow is mainly concentrated in the mountains.     

Some of the yacht holiday destinations around Vancouver Island include charming small islands and islets. The Vancouver Island is known for its diversity in terms of wildlife, marine life and other ecosystems. From aboard you can catch a glimpse of the orcas and the whales swimming by.

There are numerous Canada charter yachts , which could include Vancouver Island as a destination in their charter itinerary. Contact us for more information and the full list of yachts available in this area.
