Aboard Marauder IV, we’ve got all-weather jackets and pants if you need that extra layer. The Ocean Cruiser’s 360-degree walk-around decks offer fantastic photo ops, plus the thrill of soaring mere meters above the Ocean’s surface. She’s the only vessel in Victoria to offer such unparalleled access. Seating on the open Front Deck makes for the “Zodiac experience”, but on a big boat! Want a birds-eye view? Come up to the top deck. Sit with the Captain and you’re sure to learn a thing or two about the seafaring life.
So…Why does an eco tour company have a boat called Marauder IV?
Back in the day, Marauder IV was a well-known charter sport fishing yacht working out of Vancouver’s Bayshore Hotel. She was kind of like royalty. She’s still recognized in our waters by people who remember her. We’ve left her name intact because…well…it’s a sentimental thing. Besides, it gets people talking!
