B.C. and Alaska in all weather and in great comfort. Guests
often comment on the smooth and quiet ride and how nice it is
to be on a new, well designed and spotlessly clean vessel.

November. Visits to Port Hardy, Hakai Pass, the Queen Charlotte
Islands and the outer coast of Alaska are all on our dive schedule
as well as the old favourites like the Gulf Islands, Race Rocks
and Campbell River.

Health Canada and U.S. Public Health Service approval and a
ISM certificate issued by Lloyds Register. My wife Mary Anne,
