Departing today, the event will take Protector boat owners on an 800-mile excursion from Seattle to Lasqueti, British Columbia, and back in six days.

“Our Adventure Series is designed to bring Protector boat owners together for exciting on-the-water excursions that take full advantage of our boats’ performance and comfort,” said Protector USA marketing director Tiffany Pelletier-Shiebler.

“Trips like Alaska’s Inside Passage are what Protector boats were designed for,” she added. “This breathtaking journey will take only six days and offer a remarkable on-the-water experience, letting owners get the most out of their Protector and helping to foster community among our boat owners.”
