Maple Leaf Adventures

Selected as an operator of “Best of the World” trips by National Geographic Traveler, Maple Leaf Adventures has pioneered conservation-focused, expedition cruises along the Inside Passage since 1986. With a reputation as one of the west coast’s top sustainable tour operators, its multi-day Alaska cruises give guests unique insight into the region’s natural wonders, often areas that were once under threat of destruction. Expeditions differ from your typical cruise ship; guests are immersed in the natural and cultural history of the world they are exploring, each day becoming more in tune with the rhythms of the coast. Small groups move between locations and live and dine aboard a classic, converted tugboat. She accommodates up to twelve guests with a crew of five, including a naturalist and chef.

Maple Leaf Adventures is an innovator in regenerative tourism. One of the first operators of small-boat travel in Alaska, BC’s Great Bear Rainforest and northwestern Vancouver Island, they allocate significant resources to support and build a conservation-based economy on the coast. Maple Leaf’s leaders are fuelled by their education in environmental studies and social responsibility. Their vision is to drive a made-on-the-coast, high-quality nature-based tourism industry, that has a symbiotic relationship with coastal ecosystems and cultures and integrates with both indigenous and western cultures along the coast.
