This seaside community is rich in pioneer history, culture, arts, fine restaurants, live theatre and many outdoor activities. A must see is nearby Newcastle Island - a Provincial Marine Park - (know as "Saysutshun" by the Snuneymuxw people). Its 22 km of hiking trails, secluded individual and group camping facilities, and beaches provide a wondrous escape from urban life - except for the notorious albino racoons! This enchanting island has a vibrant First Nations culture and history as well as a long history of coal mining, a sandstone quarry and herring salteries. What To Expect Onboard: Shadowfax is a multi-hulled, wing-masted cruising catamaran sailboat. It was made for crusing safely along the Pacific Coast in an eco-friendly way. She has a shallow draft, is stable, comfortable and fast. She is equipped with approved modern communication, safety and navigation equipment. For additional safety and to get ashore, an accompanying inflatable Zodiac is always towed behind Shadowfax. Because of her large deck area - 10 meters long and 5.5 meters wide - she has ample space to sit, stand, lounge or sail. Just lying in the sun on the two hull net trampolines, watching the water pass beneath, is a delightful way to engage your senses.
