Amazing staff and experience for my family and I. Himmat was very friendly and helpful and provided lots of information prior to our booking. Scott and Himmat provided us with a great experience. I would highly recommend using them if you're looking to book a tour on the water. We will be using them again in the future.
I'd gotten in touch with Himmat at Vancouver Yacht Charters a few months ago about doing a surprise boat cruise for my parents' 20th wedding anniversary and to say that I was absolutely blown away by their service would be a huge understatement. I wish I had the words to describe just how in awe I am of how outstanding their work was and how kind Himmat, Scotty and the crew were.Everything from the decorations, to the food, to the hospitality and service was beyond incredible and the evening could not have been more perfect. I would 100% work with Himmat and the VYC team again. Thank you so much for making my parents' anniversary party one they will never forget!
Wow what a day we had with VYC. Aug 13 was a beautiful sunny day. We left Granville Island at 9am. It was breezy and the water choppy as we cruised amongst the freighters. What a neat experience , being up close and personal with those giants. A private breakfast buffet was enjoyed by us all , along with Himmets morning Caesars ! Once out in open waters Captain Scotty showed his experience in navigating against those large swells . This was a Burial at Sea for my husband . Once we arrived at our Langedale destination Captain Scotty helped disperse my husbands ashes into the ocean . Then the charter's deluxe buffet was served. It was super and the salmon was a huge hit. Definately opt for the salmon as it was a treat. Himmet kept the wine service going as we all enjoyed the buffet. Then we started back to port and even stronger waves . I know Captain Scotty worked for his money on this cruise. I must say Himmet kept us all satisfied with drinks and both him and the Captain were totally approachable through this longer than normal voyage, It was close to 7 hours by the time we docked back at Granville Island. I was impressed at how efficient and relaxed the cruise was. I would book another cruise although not as long !! Truly happy with the entire experience. Also their response time at getting back to me on the details and arrangements was exceptional. Do not hesitate to use VYC. Beverly Stevens
What can I say these guys are the best! From beginning to end. We had a small intimate wedding on the boat in June and it was the best time and our guests loved it. Himmat and Scotty were a pleasure to deal with and accomadating to all our requests and the rest of the staff were excellent! Food was great, the service was great, the boat is great and the whole experience was very enjoyable. Thank you for making our wedding so memorable. Love from Preet and Charles :)

Big thank to Himmat, Captain Scotty and staff for making our annual summer social a huge hit! Everyone had a great time, food, drinks and service was fantastic. Super friendly and accommodating. Highly recommend and I'm sure we'll be back! - Adera Development Corp.
The Royal Vancouver 1 was the most perfect venue we could have asked for! We had the wedding of our dreams here; we could not recommend them more. The staff was so attentive and helpful, they really went above and beyond for us. The food was also just AMAZING! Some of the best memories were had in this boat, all of our guests were raving. Definitely book with them
Captain Scotty and Himmat were just amazing to work with. They went "overboard" on helping us create the perfect day for my son & his new wife. There was no problem that they couldn't help us out with. The food was excellent & good choices for the meat eaters & vegetarians. They and their crew's service were outstanding. They were very attentive to our needs making our evening a wonderful event. I would highly recommend them for any kind of event on their yacht.
I wish to commend Vancouver Yacht Charters for providing a recent memorable experience for a burial at sea. Attention to details as well as sensitivity to the circumstances was greatly appreciated. Thank you for your service and the map provided.
As a wedding photographer, I had the pleasure of capturing the most stunning wedding on a yacht in English Bay. The luxury cruise offered the perfect setting for this dream wedding, with breathtaking views of Vancouver and its majestic mountains in the distance.The romantic yacht wedding experience was nothing short of magical, with the gentle waves and salty sea breeze creating a romantic atmosphere that added to the special moment. The scenery was absolutely amazing, and I couldn't help but capture every detail of the picturesque surroundings.The spectacular views of Vancouver served as the perfect backdrop for the wedding photos, highlighting the natural beauty of the city and its surroundings. The mountain views were particularly stunning, providing a sense of grandeur and majesty that made the entire event feel even more special.This wedding on the yacht was one of the most beautiful and memorable events I have ever had the pleasure of photographing. The combination of the luxury cruise, stunning scenery, and romantic atmosphere created a truly unforgettable experience that will be cherished by everyone who attended for years to come.
Thank you Himmat and team for helping us distribute the ashes of a loved one at sea! You were incredibly kind, respectful and accommodating. We enjoyed being on your vessel and are especially appreciative of all of the communication ahead of time given the rough winter storms and freezing temperatures that could have affected our trip. We left with a positive memory of performing a difficult task. Would recommend 100%.
I wanted to give a big thank you to Himmat & Scotty for making our ride on the Royal Vancouver memorable and smooth sailing for my father’s sea burial. From the moment I got in touch with Himmat to inquire about everything I instantly felt a warm and kind persona from him just by over the phone too. They are very kind and my family and I really appreciated their hospitality. Thank you again!
My father passed away in 2019, but due to COVID we were unable to scatter his ashes in English Bay as he had wished until August 2022. I was a bit unsure about how this process would work, or what the ceremony would in fact be like. I wanted it to be perfect, and had a thousand different worries. However, Vancouver Yacht Charters, along with our bagpiper and a great tip on Dahlias as one of the best floating flowers, made my Dad's send off absolutely perfect. These guys know what they are doing, and the boat was way more than enough for my group (about ten people).
Vancouver Yacht Charters are easy to contact, provide a professional service, and have extremely reasonable rates. Booking the charter was without complications. They were able to accommodate our desire for a simple charter for the purposes of delivering our father's ashes to the sea off Point Grey. We had an enjoyable burial at sea cruise on a calm and sunny day. Himmat and Scotty are friendly, respectful with just the right touch of humor. Thank-you to Vancouver Yacht Charters for making this short cruise memorable for our family.
These guys are absolutely amazing!!! I had a beautiful Harbor cruise during my regional sales meetings last week and this was by far the most fun evening you could ask for. The crew was fun and energetic, the service and the food was amazing. The fact that you can actually do a presentation on board is pretty cool. I would recommend these guys for any occasion. Thanks to the crew from all of us at Gentek!
We used their services for a ceremony for spreading our mother’s ashes. The boat cruise was perfect for what we envisioned with excellent guidance from Himmat to make it all beautiful and go smoothly. Himmat was very accommodating and sensitive to all our needs and made it a very positive peaceful experience . We couldn’t have asked for a better service on a day that was very important to our family. We would highly recommend their services. Thank you.
I have known Captain Scottie and the crew for over 20 years. Have used their services over the years and have always been impressed with their excellent rapport they develop with all their passengers. They make it fun, exciting and an event not soon forgotten. We held a celebration of life memorial for a special lady yesterday and once again, they did not disappoint. They have everything you need for any events you want to consider...and always with a smile. I would highly suggest you contact them first for all your Vancouver cruising needs. You will not be sorry!
