This summer, you can enjoy the stunning beaches of the Goose Spit or Tribune Bay by private boat.

Or, spend the day on the water catching your own crabs or prawns for your succulent seafood supper.

Or cruise around the Courtenay River and estuary with your poker pals or office mates. You could finally even get to see Mitlenatch Island Nature Reserve up close!

Comox Harbour Charters has launched a much-needed boat charter service for the Comox Valley and beyond.

Locally owned and operated by longtime (as in, forever) resident Danny Clair and his wife, Peggy Johnson, Comox Harbour Charters offers one-hour, half-day, full-day, and overnights excursions from people who know the treasures that the Valley and North Island hold.

Their trips to the local islands (whether Lasqueti or Tree) reveal the rich marine life of the West Coast, and their aquaculture and ecological tours showcase Baynes Sound shellfish farms and the Comox Estuary.

Or, with its shallow draft for beach access and room to carry kayaks and bikes, the boat allows for self-designed, customized excursions like bike trips around Hornby or fishing trips to Stuart Island.

A 40-foot heated vessel, the Twee Schoenen (Dutch for “two shoes”) carries up to 12 passengers; with full washroom facilities and a galley kitchen, it is well suited for family reunions or office parties, games nights or jam sessions.

Its hand-railed, wrap-around outer deck offers a safe, comfortable cruise out of Comox Marina for sight-seeing and fishing the Comox Valley and Vancouver Island waters.

Comox Harbour Charters is Transport Canada certified.
