List Voyages:

Delivery was in October cruising around southern California visiting among other Catalina Islands, then cruising north to Canada in November 2000. From Sidney, BC we cruised the San Juan Islands, Gulf Islands, and Desolation Sound. In May 2004 we cruised to Haida Gwaii in the Pacific 80 nm off of BC living aboard for five weeks. Don't skip this if you do Alaska. We cruised most of the British Columbia fjords including Bute Inlet starting up the Homathko River 26 miles navigable by dingy. But the Williwaws had us turn back, mission uncompleted. Will try to do it again. 2007 we lived aboard for five months traveling to Glacier Bay, Alaska taking many side trips throughout SE Alaska. Since then, we've made three more trips every other year to Alaska. Last year's trip, we circumnavigated Chichagof Island and Jim caught a 215 pound halibut. In 2012 Albedos circumnavigated Vancouver Island with Island Greeter finding tsunami debris from Japan on its west coast and 2 more Nordhavns.
