This trip takes you to the Sunshine Coast, Jervis Inlet and eventually to Princess Louisa Inlet and Chatterbox Falls, which has been called the “world’s most beautiful anchorage.” Along the way, see the wild waters of Skookumchuck Narrows, amazing scenery and wildlife, and more waterfalls than you’ll be able to count.
Short trips are designed to be added onto the end of any of your larger trips with West Adventures; thus this trip begins on Saturdays. But it can also stand on its own as a short trip.
It can be booked either as a self-drive trip or chauffeured by one of our driver/guides with a minimum of two clients. Either way, the price includes the vehicle, which will be an economy rental car or (if chauffeured) one of our minibuses.
