Did you know… QCI Vacation Homes has three types of boats available for chartering or rental!
The majority of the fishing charters are offered through Masset Fishing Adventures, utilizing the completely outfitted 24 foot Sea West sports fishing boats. These boats are purpose built by Jenkins Marine out of Victoria BC and are very comfortable, offering private toilet and a heated cabin to get out of the elements. They comfortably handle one to four guests plus the guide and although rainsuits are less essential, still probably a good idea when out on the deck. These boats are available for rental from QCI Vacation Homes for qualified operators.
If you’re not sure if you’re a qualified operator, please contact Gary at QCI to inquire.
Looking for a smaller vessel that comfortably fits 2-3 fishing enthusiasts?
QCI Vacation Homes also offers charters for one to three people on a smaller 19 foot Arima vessel. It offers a private toilet and although it is not heated, it offers shelter from the wind and rain. Guest do want to ensure they are dressed for the elements with rainsuits and warm clothing.
For the live-aboard yachting experience!
The “Cuxhaven” is a fast trawler, designed and built in 1995 by Independent Shipwrights on Vancouver Island. The majority of these hand laid fibreglass hulls were built as commercial fishing boats with many currently part of the Tuna fleet off the west coast of BC. Less than a handful of these well made and seaworthy boats were built as pleasure craft, and QCI Vacation Homes is proud to own one of them.
The “Cuxhaven” sleeps up to four guests comfortably, each with their own bunk in a single forward passenger stateroom. The dining area converts to a double bunk accommodating six, however four is the ideal number for maximizing economy and experience. Day trips can handle 7 guests. The Cuxhaven offers exceptional experiences to fishermen and photographers alike, offering a very comfortable platform to explore the area. The enclosed “head” or washroom, offers a full size shower and hot and cold running water! The main living area is spacious and very bright with lots of windows through which to view the surroundings. It has a well equipped kitchen as well as large BBQ with both open and covered decks available depending upon the weather. After a long day of fishing and sight-seeing, most people are happy to enjoy the gorgeous twilight views that you can’t experience in the city before turning in, however HD TV and laptop are available should guests wish to bring DVDs or simply review photographs from the day. Satellite radio and satellite telephone are both available.
The “Cuxhaven” offers comfortable fishing and wildlife observation where guests can be outside under cover from the elements if required or enjoy the warmth of the sunshine when available. The large upper deck offers an excellent platform to view and photograph the abundant wildlife that the west coast of British Columbia is famous for. The “Cuxhaven” boasts all the latest navigation and fishing aids and offers top of the line fishing equipment. The Cuxhaven is a good fishing platform itself but for an additional charge a 19 foot Arima “Sea Chaser” or a 24 foot “Sea West”, both specifically designed for west coast fishing can be towed along for the very serious sports fisherman. All fishing supplies are included except for fishing licenses which guests must purchase prior to the trip. To reserve your unrivaled fishing and vacation experience today contact QCI Vacation Homes
