From the torrid jungle of Panama to the frozen wastes of Alaska, the West Coast of North America encompasses a vast array of cruising areas as well as some of the most famous yachting centers in the world.
British Columbia boasts one of the most beautiful and dramatic cruising grounds available. When you choose yacht delivery to this stunning location, you are exposed to a dynamic array of snowcapped mountains, waterfalls that cascade down rugged cliffs, majestic islands and quiet fjords. The 100-mile long Vancouver Island protects most of the mainland from the Pacific Ocean by creating an inland sea. Dotted with islands and spiked with inlets, the absence of swell can provide great sailing conditions.
The most popular yacht shipping area is the Gulf Islands in the south. There are harbors and anchorages on both sides of the Strait of Georgia, which separates Vancouver Island from the mainland. Another good cruising area is at the north of the Strait, where a cluster of islands border the magnificent Desolation Sound. North of this begins the inside passage to Alaska.
If you venture further south to Mexico, you will find an ancient culture, a vibrant atmosphere unmatched anywhere else in Latin America and a landscape that varies from high mountains to silvery beaches. Also included in this area is the very interesting cruising area known as the Gulf of California (Sea of Cortez).
In Costa Rica, lying between Nicaragua and Panama, the most popular port of call is Golfito. From there, 300 miles offshore in the Pacific, you will find the exciting island of Coco – we encourage you to check out its amazing birdlife and underwater scenery teeming with exotic fish.
