Great Vancouver Fishing charter

Getaway Yacht Charters gave my buddies and I a fishing trip we will never forget


After our first GETAWAY, a great afternoon my wife and I spent aboard Captains Impatient!, seeing places that only the privileged few ever experience, I was back aboard the Pacific Northwest’s most luxurious 63’ Yacht with some buddies for a four-day fishing trip that created memories I will have forever.


I was like a giddy school girl as I walked my group of friends down the peer on Coal Harbour where my wife and I found Captains Impatient! for the first time. From the minute the four of us stepped on board, the owner, Dave Meena was dedicated to ensuring that we were taken care of. He was very personable and he accommodated our every need. We had so much fun and his professionalism and knowledge about fishing lead to great success, It was brilliant!


The Captain introduced us to some spectacular fishing and something that was a first to me, crab trapping. One day of our four-day weekend included trapping the dungeness crab. Casting out then pulling in our trap every ten to 15 minutes to check our success was very exiting. Once we were happy with our catch, we were treated to some very interesting cooking instructions that lead to a spectacular meal. Our crab bounty was so great that we were able to package up and take home the extra to practice my new cooking prowess on my wife.


The salmon we caught over the weekend were huge, both in size and number. We would catch then clean each of the fish that were big enough to brag about. Later, the cabin would be abuzz as we sat together sharing a feast that always included the fresh catch of the day, a glass of wine or two and the chatter of the day's stories.


The many delicious meals during our trip included our daily catch and a selection of exceptional, fresh food and a menu that was varied & tasty and always something that we looked forward to. Added to this was our spacious quarters made this a dream vacation. The four of us were very comfortable below deck with three cabins. The master cabin that can be found midship is a very comfortable space with a queen size bed and en-suite. Forward is the VIP guest cabin with its own queen bed and private access to the guest head. The third cabin has two bunks. With a television, washer and dryer and central vacuum we had all the luxuries of home.


This was my second of many vacations with the ocean stretched out in front of me. Captains Impatient! showed me a different type of holiday and it all started with a visit to Getaway Yacht Charters in Coal Harbour to show me where a perfect holiday begins.
