Victoria Tall Ships and Schooner Zodiac at Night

Ukuleles at Sea

NOTE: Tall Ship Festival schedules are not yet set for this year. Please call or email for more details.

Experience the excitement, history and romance of Tall ships from around the world while staying aboard one of the authentic Windjammer Schooners of the last century!

We invite you to be a part of Tall Ships on the Schooner Zodiac's Tall Ships Festival Cruise. Arrive to Victoria via the Victoria Clipper on (tbd). A uniformed Zodiac crew member will meet you at the dock and escort you down the festival docks, lined with classic and elegant Tall Ships of all styles and sizes!
There you'll board the 127' schooner Zodiac as her "honorary crew" for the festival.

As a guest crew aboard Schooner Zodiac, one of the largest ships with pride of place in the Inner Harbor, you'll get to witness this event from the best seat in the house. With VIP access to crew-only parties and events, and just a quick stroll from the historic Empress Hotel and downtown Victoria, this will be an experience like no other. Only a select few places are available for this once in a lifetime adventure.

There are options for "working" on board the Zodiac as a deck-hand during our day-sails as well as being a docent for public tours (no worries, we'll give you a cheat sheet)!
Also available during your stay in Victoria are extras like Afternoon Tea at the Empress Hotel and admission to the Royal BC Museum, Butchart Gardens and of course, plenty of Tall Ships sight-seeing!

We spend our last three days of the trip sailing back in US water - anchoring in some of the San Juan Islands most pristine bays... kayak, hike or swim- your choice!

Join us for a one-of-a-kind experience and be part of the Tall Ships magic!

Special bonus: Zodiac Crew T-shirt included.
