Book a boat and Captain to guide a dive or fishing trip based out of our private Bamfield location, or just rent the cottage for a period of rest and relaxation at our West Coast hideaway in the woods. Waterfront log cabin with fully equipped kitchen, loft sleeping area, bathroom, and hot tub on the deck. Please inquire for more info.

Erin and his other operators are top notch. Extremely experienced in the waters all around Vancouver Island and Erin has a number of well equip boats for diving high current areas like Race Rocks. Definitely my first choice when I’m looking for a charter.
