Private charter boats Victoria BC

2 ocean going boats for hire for private boat charters in the Gulf Islands and San Juan Islands, including lakes on Vancouver Island.

The Zodiac is our primary vessel. The Zodiac brand out of France is recognised as the World’s leading manufacturer of quality RIB’s, and this is reflected in the comfort and personal safety you will enjoy when you join us for your day out on the water. With its 24 degree deadrise deep " V " hull it completes tight turns with no sideslip or cavitation. The hull feels very comfortable, stable and smooth. Read this independent review from Australia with nothing but praise for this boat.

We supply full-body survival suits which will keep you warm on a cooler day and serve as a life jacket for your safety and peace of mind. Just in case you are worried about personal safety, however, the Zodiac Medline III is officially certified by Zodiac as unsinkable. We of course have all the legally required safety equipment onboard.

The boat has been designed to be spacious and comfortable with fitted seating for seven guests and the helmsman. On board we also have a marine toilet in the privacy of the helm cabin. The boat is also fitted with a sink with running water, a swim platform with transom shower, an electric cool box, a sun bathing deck, and a Bimini cover to give some shade from the sun. There is even a single burner ring for a hot beverage if you want an alternative to a cold can. There is lots of under seat dry storage. Under the rear 3-person passenger bench seat a huge locker can also store everything from water skis to safety equipment.

Our boat is fitted with an ultra low carbon emission Suzuki high performance 250hp engine that will speed you to your destination at a very safe 50 mph | 80 kmph. More than enough power to help you enjoy those water sports for the more adventurous amongst you.

Put simply, we have not found any RIB in its class to match the Zodiac Medline III. It will turn most for providing you with an exciting day on the water in complete comfort and luxury.

Flagship of the line, the Medline III spares no effort to ensure your comfort: hydraulic steering, large sundecks fore and aft, cabin space sufficient for marine toilets, a built-in kitchenette (sink with running water, collapsible table, stove and electric cooler). The bolster provides great piloting comfort whether standing or sitting. Approved for 8 persons for the open ocean in the "Offshore Design Category B" of the ERCD, and 15 passengers for at sea but close to shore in the "Inshore Design Category C", the Medline III can challenge the open sea with long-range cruising capacity thanks to its 2 fuel tanks totalling 345 litres (91 US gal). Officially declared unsinkable with 7 persons aboard, it received the NMMA’s Innovation Award at the Miami Boat Show.

Whales, tall ship wreck and oceanside vineyards

the Crowther Family Boating Journal: Our Alaska cruise pulled in to Vancouver just after 7:30 am and by 11:30 we met up with Dieter. Our flight back home to Australia left the next day. With Dieter’s planning advice it all went like clockwork. We flew in to Ganges from the Vancouver harbour on a float plane with Salt Spring Island Air where Dieter met us. After enjoying an excellent lunch on Salt Spring we headed south through the Gulf Islands and stopped at the Saturna Island Vineyards to sample their wines and bought a few bottles. This oceanside vineyard reminded us of those back home in southern Australia near Melbourne. We also saw a tall ship wrecked on a reef near there. We passed through the San Juans where we spent an hour or so watching a super pod of Orcas. A large male breached completely out of the water just a few hundred yards from the boat. This is an experience we will never forget and recommend to anyone who loves the ocean and wildlife. Dieter dropped us off in Victoria right next to the West Coast Air float plane docks at 5:30 pm. By 7:00 pm we were back in our hotel in Vancouver! What a perfect day. This was the icing on our perfect week to the west coast. Thank you "Birds of a Feather". Next time we’ll be back to stay at your B&B in Victoria.
