“An Excellent Dinner Cruise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

Pristine Charters' website gave a clear description of what was included in the dinner cruise - where the tour went and the menu. A call to Randall to book the cruise was returned in a timely fashion and that is when we learned that the cost was $110/person. We felt this was good value for the cruise and dinner. Dinner included prawns that we watched Randall pull up in his traps at the beginning of the tour - so fresh and delicious! The entire meal was wonderful.
There were six of us on the cruise along with Randall and Meralon and the yacht felt spacious. There was seating on the bow and up above (accessed by a ladder). One of the seniors with us felt most comfortable inside at the table but also sat on a chair outside at times. A step-stool was available to get on and off the boat and Randall was very helpful when assisting with boarding.
Randall and Meralon were great hosts who gave us information about what we were seeing and made us feel at-home and comfortable on their yacht. We were able to help ourselves to soft drinks and water and enjoyed our own wine at dinner.
We all felt this was a wonderful evening and would highly recommend the dinner cruise.

“Awesome Activity”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

My husband Jack and I were very lucky to have had the experience of a dinner cruise on board Pristine Charters. Our excursion started with a very informative activity - pulling the prawn and crab traps. Being from Ontario we had never experienced this before and Randall explained the process in great detail. We even got to pull in a 20 lb. octopus that was in one of the prawn traps!

Our first views of Desolation Sound were simply amazing! Randall then whistled to a pair of bald eagles who came and flew around the boat waiting for their tasty treat - frozen chicken - which they swooped down and retrieved.

Our delicious dinner consisted of prawns, steak, chicken, wonderful roasted potatoes and salad complete with homemade salad dressings. Nanaimo bars were the right amount of sweetness after the fantastic meal. Our compliments to the chief chef Meralon.

We will definitely be recommending this adventure to our friends as it is a definite must do!

“Five stars +”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2014

Another great day on the water with Randall and Meralon. We do this once a year with our friends from Powell River. This has been our 12th year with them and it has always been amazing. It had started as a short trip and is now 7 hour trip. There is no real summer without this trip. Randall takes us wherever we want to go, and if we want to so dome fishing, we do that too. I now have bragging rights of catching bigger salmon than the guys. Thank you Randall for good netting skill.

We again had a great feast of seafood and home made salad dressings are very good. I can't wait to take my sister and her partner, who will visit next year from Europe, on this trip. I'm always telling her about Randall calling eagles and I know it will be a great show.

By the way, there is a new crew member on the boat. His name is Captain Benson. He will great you with enthusiastic kisses and licks and then curl up and have a nap. We all enjoyed meeting him and apparently he loves children.

If you are ever in Lund, Pristine Charter is a MUST.

“Amazing excursion”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2014

I can't thank Meralon and Randall enough for their generosity and hospitality. Not only are the two great hosts, but excellent guides and cooks. They gave detailed descriptions of where we were going and what to look for. We also brought along my 7 year old daughter and she had the time of her life. She was allowed to sit up top and down below and they even let her steer the boat. We enjoyed a beautiful, scenic tour and wonderful food. Thank you so much, for the 3.5 hour dinner cruise. Meralon even makes her own home-made salad dressings, which taste better than anything store bought. I can't wait to go on this tour again. I would absolutely suggest it for any out -of- towners or people who might be having guests come visit this summer!
