Join us for the Labour Day cruise, the last cruise of the summer season. We went to the Gulf Islands for the Canada day cruise so for this 4 or 5 day cruise there will be a change of direction visiting Jedediah Island and Tribune Bay on Hornby Island, both popular destinations for the coop.
There are 4 boats available, Jinjersnap from Westport and Weekend Pirate, My Way and Tinkertoy all from Vancouver. There are 15 spaces and cruises have been popular this year so I encourage members to sign up early.
