Investing in Community and Conservation

Canadian Coastal Sailing is proud to support the passion, vision and efforts of volunteer and non-profit organizations working hard to build community, conserve our environment and make a difference for tomorrow.

Our perspective on conservation

As a leading ecoTourism operator in the Sea-to-Sky corridor, we recognize that the condition of our community and environment is a reflection of us as both a local business and residents of the corridor.

Human connection with nature, flourishing marine life, responsible recreation practices and small-town community health are the pillars that support our business. Canadian Coastal Sailing is dedicated to investing in this foundation through our operations, including donations and sponsorships that support a selection of community leaders and worthy programs.

We recognize that all human activity has an impact on the ecosystem, and are constantly striving to discover new ways for our operations to provide overall benefit to our community and environment. Guests attracted and inspired by the experience of sailing the majesty of northern Howe Sound are encouraged to join us in these efforts by considering ways of mitigating their environmental impact when travelling and participating as part of the collective responsibility to preserve and enhance the future of what we all share and value.
