Vancouver Fishing Charters
Important News & Updates for 2017
Hello everyone, and thank you for considering us for your 2017 whale watching or fishing adventure! We have a few big announcements and changes we wanted to bring to your attention before the season is underway.
First, there was an unfortunate electrical fire that occurred at our office building over the winter. Luckily no one was injured, but the office itself and most of its contents were destroyed by the fire. As a result, we will be rebuilding a brand new office building for the upcoming season. This will NOT affect our start date of April 1st, or any of our tours. None of the boats were affected and we will have an office space up and running soon!
Because of the fire however, we are asking anyone who made a reservation before 2017 for an upcoming trip (especially anyone who made an early fishing trip booking, which is not saved in the same online system as our whale watching charters) to PLEASE contact us to confirm that we have your reservation on file for this season. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause and hope to be able to sort out all the bookings prior to your fishing trips.
In more positive and exciting news, we also have a new vessel joining our whale watching fleet this year, a 12 passenger open zodiac! Its construction is now underway and we look forward to updating you with photos and booking dates for that vessel as soon as it’s ready!
Thank you all for your understanding while we rebuild and expand, and despite any changes we go through, we look forward to providing you with the same level of service you’ve come to expect from us over the years in this upcoming season as well.
Please don’t hesitate to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions and we will see you for the 2017 season!
