“Fun in the sun ..”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Yesterday we had the great luck of grabbing a 3 hour tour of Desolation Sound with the husband and wife time of Pristine Charters. We wanted to share our view and thank them for a wonderful tour and great food. Randal, the skipper, is very knowledgeable and entertaining. The boat is very comfortable and there was plenty of room for all 5 passengers and 2 crew. We highly recommend this for anyone visiting Lund.

“Memorable evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

Our cruise into Desolation sound with Randall and Meralon could not have been more enjoyable. Seeing a 7500 ft. mountain"rising" from the ocean was awe-inspiring. Randall's knowledge of the area and the way he related his growing -up years in and around Lund made it very personal. It's amazing that his wife can create such a great meal in a very small kitchen. He was aware that we were trying to catch the last ferry back to Saltery Bay at 10:30 p.m. to get to our rental in Gibsons (a long haul back) and offered to put us up in his spare bedroom if we didn't make it! We did make it, but I'm confident he would have kept his promise. It was a great evening with a great crew.

“Desolation Sound and Copeland Islands accidental high school reunion”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

We took 12 people for a Desolation Sound cruise and a Copeland Island marine park swim and explore trip. Randall and Meralon were great hosts. The local details were great, he insured the children had a special time with notes in a bottle and supervised steering of the vessel. He insured everyone had a great time he took my wife and daughter out in the ships zodiac and happened upon a beautiful catamaran, thus reinforcing the pleasure of owning a large boat, which her and I have been debating as a purchase. ( thanks Randal) I snorkeled with my sister in the marine park and my sons explored the islands on foot and Kayaked. While we played, swam and just relaxed Randal and his wife prepared a delicious meal of fresh caught prawns, Scallops-bacon wraps, Steak, moist chicken breast; with salad and fresh bread. Pop and juice supplied. The icing on the cake is that four of us including Randal went to high school together and it was my close friends wedding anniversary, It was a terrific cruise and a special time together. Thank you Randal and Meralon, we look forward to seeing you again, I will be sharing our experience and showing pictures of our wonderful experience to my fellow nurses, Dr's, and staff I work with.

“Educational, scenic and a great meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

A very comfortable boat and welcoming crew. We meandered through the Copeland Islands and up to Desolation Sound. Enjoyed the skipper's sense of humour and his stories about the area. Dinner was served in our choice of the dining area or on the sun deck - prawns, chicken, steak, salads . . . delicious!!
