There isn't a much better way to spend your summer than on the water. Instead of renting a hotel room for your weeklong, well deserved vacation, consider another option. If you enjoy a little adventure, direct access to the waterfront, and the ability to do as you please on the open seas, this alternative to a land-dwelling holiday will have you sailing with excitement. Make the most of the warm weather by chartering a yacht with your friends, split the cost, sit back and cruise the majestic BC coastline. Or just relax on the water and wake up every morning to the fresh sea air.

No matter your fancy, this list has the yacht for you, and don't worry if you don't know how to drive a boat because a few of these include a host captain, guaranteeing a safe and stellar stay. The prices listed are approximate, determined by how many people it can accommodate. Full boat specifications and booking information is linked. So call up the usual beach crew and take it to a whole new level this summer.
