Book Your Adventure on The Pacific Yellowfin
Launched in Maine in 1943 as a US Army Junior Mine Layer, later to become an ammunition supply vessel servicing the Pacific fleet, the M/V Pacific Yellowfin exudes adventure and excitement.
Refitted with all modern amenities, Captain Colin Griffinson and his crew expertly engage the sea, navigating the inside channels of the West coast. These mystical waters include the Great Bear Rainforest, the Gulf Islands, and spectacular Desolation Sound. You hold the compass and the captain sets forth, dropping anchor in his secluded coves, inlets, and hidden bays. Set sail with your friends, loved ones or colleagues. Let the waves lull you to sleep in your luxurious cabins.
Awake to noisy neighbors: the blow of the humpback, call of the harbour seal and eagle, the excited cries of your mates as they spot a bear. Shoot down the giant slide and into some of the warmest waters north of Mexico. Find the rhythm of the water in your kayak. Explore an island on mountain bike. Listen to the locals as they invite you in to their stories and lives. Search for grizzlies, wolves and other hidden wildlife. Harvest your own dinner – pull up bountiful prawn and crab traps, or gather oysters and clams. Your catch will be prepared to perfection by the ship’s talented chef.
Whether you’re a photographer, fisherman, nature lover or steward of the earth, the Yellowfin is sure to find your happy place. It’s just near the horizon, where the forests stand at attention, where whales come by to offer their greeting.
