The Pacific Swift is a square topsail schooner, built by S.A.L.T.S. as a working exhibit at Expo '86 in Vancouver, British Columbia. She provides 5- to 10-day sail training programs for young people and day sails for S.A.L.T.S. members around Vancouver Island and along the coast of British Columbia.

The Pacific Swift has completed four offshore voyages, some of more than a year in duration. Her offshore travels have taken her to Australia and Europe, to remote communities on Easter and Pitcairn Island, and to many other far-flung ports of call. She has logged over 100,000 nautical miles (190,000 km).
