BAREBOAT CHARTER

We are agents for a number of bareboat charter companies on Vancouver Island and the mainland.  Both powerboat and sailboat charters are available with a wide range of manufacturers and sizes.  Let us find the right boat for you.


If you are planning to cruise in the Gulf Islands, considering starting your vacation from Vancouver Island.

Gulf Islands Cruising School Ltd. brokers clean, well-maintained and equipped yachts for your cruising pleasure.  
 

QUALIFICATIONS NEEDED TO BAREBOAT CHARTER:
Previous experience on tidal waters in a similar sized boat and/or the CYA Intermediate Cruising, Coastal Navigation and/or CPS Boating course or equivalent.


Can you answer "YES" to the following questions?

Am I confident handling a boat of this size in tidal waters?

Have I the navigational skills to safely pilot a boat?

Do I have copies of any certification showing my qualifications?

If you do not have the qualifications to bareboat charter, you may want to take a sailing, powerboat or navigation course.  Another option is to hire an instructor to teach a private course on any charter boat.
