Pacific Northwest Luxury Yachting Guide

A stunning partnership of two adventurous nations, the Pacific Northwest is an attractive merge of modern world culture and intensely rural landscapes. Cosmopolitan cities sit comfortably alongside rich, unspoilt forests, making this magnificent region intensely popular with fashionistas and outdoor enthusiasts alike.

Proudly highlighting the northern expanse of the Americas, this region is brimming with unique and awe-inspiring geographical features encased in exciting national parks, impressive glaciers and mystical mountain peaks. Delightfully sheltered waterways offer protected cruising grounds and hundreds of inlets and coves simply perfect for anchoring and drinking in the peaceful atmosphere of this wonderful part of the world.

In the north sits the famously scenic Alaska, a unique world of mountains and countryside that simply has to be seen to be believed. Offering its fair share of urban escapes, no matter where you head in Alaska, pristine landscapes are never far away.

British Columbia
Southeast of Alaska is the Canadian province of British Columbia, a region of fabulous scenery and delightfully charismatic cities. The picture-perfect capital city of Victoria is awash of delightful museums and seaside eateries, while the adventurous Vancouver thrills visitors with its outdoor lifestyle and multicultural charm. Sprinkled with a lovely array of enchanting islands, British Columbia is well worth discovering.

Across the border in the USA lie the vibrant states of Washington and Oregon. Washington boasts an astonishing natural canvas of volcanoes, farmland and waterfalls alongside the glittering high-fashion city of Seattle. A must-see destination on any American itinerary, there may be no more delightful place to spend a few sensational days browsing the trendy shops and drinking in the thriving café culture than in this über-sophisticated capital.

San Juan Islands
Off Washington's coast is the extremely popular and equally as exciting San Juan Islands, hosting an alluring array of buzzing marinas, sumptuous dining and brilliant anchorages.

Just south of Washington is Oregon, a fiercely independent state that packs everything from craggy coastlines, thick forests and sandy deserts into its intriguing boundaries. The buzzing capital of Portland is undeniably cool, combining a natural quirkiness with a happening vibrancy that means visitors are always entertained. The Pacific coastline that stretches lazily in front of Oregon is the spectacular home to an indulgent sprinkle of first-class resorts and seaside hideaways.

Willamette Valley
Travelling further inland brings one of the finest Pinot Noir producing regions in the world, the Willamette Valley, where tumbling vineyards create some casually elegant wineries.

Cannon Beach
Also worth a visit is the appealing Cannon Beach, a boho-beachside town offering a picturesque coastal lifestyle a short sail away from Portland.
