Fabulous sail around the Sunshine Coast

Great couple of days with Mike and Orca Wind sailing the beautiful Sunshine Coast. He's a knowledgable and witty host and a great captain! Highly recommended!

My small company took a 6-hour sail with Mike on the Orca Wind to celebrate 5 years in business. It was a great way to relax together and enjoy the beauty of Howe Sound. Mike was so friendly and knowledgeable with funny stories. He even sabred our champagne bottle for our celebration! We brought our own picnic lunch so he... More

This was a wonderful experience I highly recommend it to anyone looking to WOW a significant other or have fun with a bunch of friends on a sail boat. I rented the boat for my special someone and it was a great choice. It was a first time experience for the both of us and definitely created long lasting memories.

We could not have chosen a better way to celebrate my husband’s birthday! Michael was ever so accommodating in helping me to surprise my husband with having friends join us on our dinner cruise. Mike makes you feel at home the moment of your arrival. His wonderful outgoing personality, amazing culinary skills and sharp sense of humor will not soon... More

My family and I (6 in all including 4 children ranging from 9-17) sailed with Mike on our recent visit to Vancouver and it was truly a highlight. Mike is a great guy, knowledgeable sailor and cooks a mean grilled salmon! We sailed out of gorgeous Horseshoe Bay (30 mins north of the city) and enjoyed 5 hours on the... More

We went sailing with Mike to celebrate my birthday, and could not have had a better time! This was a 4 hour dinner sail, and we would both do it again anytime! We might even have to track him down in the Bahamas to have a sail there! Mike not only took us out for a great sunset sail, but... More

We had such a great time sailing with Michael in Howe Sound we want to come back and do it again. He is a very knowledgeable skipper with a great sense of humor, and you won't be sorry. I only hope I can do a 2 day trip next year and learn a bit about sailing myself. Give it a... More
