This year Fraser Squadron has five cruises planned with destinations ranging from marinas in the gulf islnads to anchoring in Princess Louisa inlet. A little something for everybody. Come on out and meet some of the other people who call Fraser Squadron their own.
Princess Louisa Inlet
This is an extended cruise of at least a week and probably longer depending on your schedule. We plan to cruise to Princess Louisa Inlet and to explore the surrounding area including Pender Harbour, Hotham Sound. Texada Island, and Jedediah Island.
Please email Peter Lefroy and let him know if you will be joining us.
