Take a Brews Cruise in British Columbia

Maple Leaf Adventures Overview Tall Sails & Ales Overview Itinerary Details First, I see that Mark is doing a Brew Cruise in the north Atlantic, then I get notice of this BC in BC. That is, a Brews Cruise in British Columbia. I don't know how long this concept has been around but, wow!, what a great combination of fun activities. This particular Tall Sails & Ales cruise is run by Maple Leaf Adventures and is the second year they've conducted it. In this 5-night trip, you can accomplish a remarkable sight-seeing tour along the stunning BC coast, a small-group schooner trip, and a tutored tasting of several of the well-renowned BC brews by Greg Evans. Over the past year, I've been hearing bits and pieces about the BC brewing scene as the guys over at Pacific Brew News have done some tastings and travels of this region. And, how much more timely can we get than this week's episode over at PBN. This sounds like a great excuse to witness it firsthand :) For further information, I recommend reading the links at the top (in the listed order). If it doesn't whet your appetite for a getaway vacation like this, I don't know what will! Oh, and by the way, they also run an eco-friendly business which means that their cruises make very little impact on the environment through which they are travelling. Kudos and Cheers!

Sailing and beer. Hmmm...I wonder if I would be able to keep my lunch down. I've only been on a sailboat once.

Ha! interesting point.

Luckily, the Gulf Islands/eastern Vancouver Island area is in a protected inland sea, so is pretty calm and not like open ocean at all!

Some people think it's like a lake.
