Captain Don is wonderful, we spent a delightful afternoon on a gentle, relaxed sail out of Ganges Harbour. There were only 7 of us on board as we set sail. Don identified all of the other islands we passed by as well as pointed out swimming seals to everyone's delight. A wonderfully relaxed way to spend a summer afternoon in... More

My husband & I had the pleasure of spending the afternoon plying the waters off Salt Spring Island with Captain Don on the L'Orenda on a sunny albeit not super windy day in July. It was a wonderful way to get another perspective of the island and we enjoyed our conversations and brought a split of champagne and some cheese/crackers... More

My family and I had a day trip to Salt Spring Island last weekend with a visit to the farmer's market for lunch and then off to Don's sailboat for a beautiful sail around the bay. We saw some seals, and eagle or two and lots of sunshine. Don has a warm and relaxed way that makes you feel immediately... More

I took my boyfriend out for a birthday trip with Don and it could not have been more perfect. We were the only ones who booked that day, so we had our own private sailing tour. Don was so laid back and friendly, and he clearly knew what he was doing. It was great talking to him about how he... More

We were staying in Ganges and were delighted to find that a sailing trip was available on the 39 ft. yawl L'Orenda, built, owned and skippered by Captain Don. We left the dock in brilliant sunshine and a fairly brisk breeze and were happy to find that there were extra jackets and blankets on board, as it was surprisingly cool... More

My girlfriend invited me to join her on a 3 hour sail this afernoon with Captain Don of L'Orenda sailing. We left Ganges Harbour just after 1 pm with lots of sunshine and wind. We met some nice tourists from Edmonton and Montreal on board. Lots of laughs and smiles were had by all. We even brought along some snacks... More

We were 3 couples looking to fill in an afternoon and we found the perfect answer in Lorenda Sailing. We booked for 3 hours to sail around Ganges Harbour on Don's yacht L'orenda. Don is a great host, very relaxed and friendly - would chat with us but was also happy to quietly skipper the yacht. We took a selection... More
