    About Vancouver

    Vancouver is the largest city in Western Canada located in British Columbia. It’s one of Canada's most beautiful cities. It’s a traveler's paradise. With mountains, water all around, and a magnificent skyline, this seaport city is a popular destination year round.

    Vancouver boasts of several beaches with English Bay Beach being the most popular in the downtown area. Bordered on the east by the Stanley Park Seawall, the beach offers a café, concessions and kayak rentals.It’s a gorgeous city that sits between the Pacific Ocean and the Coast Mountains. It has a very high standard of living and is considered one of the best places to live. Three primary districts divide the city, the city center, the eastside, and the westside. Within these divisions, there are diverse and interesting neighborhoods to explore.

    The best time of year to visit Vancouver is during the months of April through October. The summer is a beautiful season, with sunny skies, warm temperatures, and the city seems to come alive with people enjoying the outdoors. The ocean breeze keeps the city from ever getting too hot and humid. Winter in Vancouver is pretty mild with lighter rain than other parts of the Pacific Northwest.

    To get to Vancouver, the easiest way is to fly into the Vancouver International Airport. From here you can take the SkyTrain - the public transport system that will get you downtown, or take a taxi to your accommodation. A train is a scenic option if you’re coming from another part of Canada, although this option can be pricey.

      Luxury 53' Sea Ray Motor Yacht in Vancouver, Canada

      My husband and I booked this yacht for our second wedding anniversary and we had the absolute most amazing time. I booked this through Maj but Peter was our captain. Peter made us feel so welcome and gave us the most incredible service. He is genuine and down to earth and it made us very happy to have such an incredible host that was so personable. We ate dinner, had a couple of drinks, swam, used the seadoo, saw some seals and watched the sunset. It was the perfect day. Thanks again Maj and Peter!

      Luxury 53' Sea Ray Motor Yacht in Vancouver, Canada

      Five Stars for this fantastic boat and captain! It is our second year booking with Captain Maj. We had a blast bringing our own music, food and drinks. Very accommodating captain that took us where we wanted to go, anchored and we chilled in the sun. Can’t wait to book again next year!
