Vancouver Yacht Rental Was Fantastic

We were hooked on Getaway Yacht Charters from our first visit

It was on our most recent visit to Vancouver, a place my wife and I can never seem to get enough of, that we wandered down to Coal Harbour, where the beautiful yacht, Captains Impatient is moored. After speaking with the captain, we decided to take a 4-hour harbour cruise that started with a trip around beautiful Stanley Park before we headed west to Lions Gate Bridge for an afternoon of touring the inner Vancouver Harbour to Point Atkinson, into English Bay and False Creek.


There was plenty to see, but I must say my favorite was when we travelled past Granville Island with its lively collection of unique shops, great restaurants, marine stores and much more. Along the trip the captain and crew served us to a very tasty meal which we leisurely enjoyed on deck. We had such a great day relaxing and taking in the sun and scenery that it occurred to us that next time we will enjoy this incredible cruise in the evening so that we can enjoy Vancouver’s vivid city lights and skyline. On the way back we stopped to pick up dinner of fresh dungess crab that we caught in the traps we dropped at the start of our tour. The perfect end to a great afternoon tour.


During our tour, the very friendly and accommodating crew told us about the 4-hour Celebration of Lights tour they offer each year at the end of July. Their description of the world's largest offshore international fireworks competition has us convinced that we will book our spot to view the extravaganza of fireworks set to a musical soundtrack. The four-night spectacle lights up the sky just off Sunset Beach and they say there is no better place to watch than from the comfort of Captains Impatient, anchored in English Bay right in front of the event.


Once we were back on shore I took the opportunity to book Captains Impatient for a weekend in the middle of summer and will start planning my first annual fishing trip with a few of my very lucky friends. Every summer six of us buddies take a take a week off and go golfing or fishing and this year, because it’s my turn to book, we are going to enjoy four days of fishing for the area’s famous salmon. The crew were sharing their success stories about trolling with flashers hoochies at 60 to 130 in the area around Vancouver and the Gulf Islands and I was hooked.


I will spend the next several months anticipating my next holiday aboard Captains Impatient! for four days rather than a few short hours. It may have been an unexpected coincidence that my wife and I ended up at Getaway Yacht Charters where their luxurious and quality built  63’ Yacht, Captains Impatient! was waiting to show us where a perfect holiday begins.
