A former Canadian Coast Guard search and rescue boat, 11 metres (36 feet). Built in 1950, she was with the Coast Guard lifeboat station in Tofino until 1972, then Pacific Rim National Park until 1980 when we acquired her. The cabin has been modified to seat 9 guests inside. There is also outdoor, open deck viewing space and a small forward cabin with a marine toilet. The ride is at a slower, more relaxed, pace and is more suitable for those wanting to do general scenic photography.
Ideal for rainy days or those who wish a slower paced tour.
An 8 metre (27 foot) rigid hull inflatable. This is a fast and fun open boat with padded seating for up to 12 guests. It is the type used by coast guards worldwide due to their extreme seaworthiness and safety. Warm, overall, coast guard approved, exposure suits (with a built-in life jacket) are provided for your comfort and safety.
We do our best to avoid the bumps; however, if you have back or neck problems, a heart condition, or are pregnant, we suggest you choose our other boat, the Dixie IV. Children under 4 years old are not permitted on the Discovery.
