Your safety is important to us. To have fun you must feel safe and secure. With us, safety starts with the boat. The Canadian Coast Guard uses the exact same vessel model as we do for their high-speed rescue craft. In addition all our safety gear meets or exceeds Canadian Coast Guard regulations.
Tide Runner I and Tide Runner II are both 24-foot rigid-hulled Zodiac
Hurricanes™. Powered by twin 150 Yamaha gas engines, the Zodiac’s power and speed enable us to find whales and wildlife wherever they may be. Both vessels are constructed to military standards and consist of a deep “V” hull, surrounded by a five-chamber inflated hypalon collar. Each Zodiac is equipped with radar, chart plotter, GPS, radios, cell phone and depth sounder, which provide safe and secure operation in all weather. Tide Runner I and Tide Runner II are always kept in top running order offering the fastest and most exciting whale watching experience in the entire Bay.
Each passenger over 90 lbs. is provided with a Canadian approved full length Mustang™ flotation suit for safety and comfort. Sizes range from xs to xxl. Children under 90 lbs. will be provided with a Personal Flotation Device (PFD). We carry a maximum of 12 passengers. Sorry, but we are unable to accomodate children under five (5) years of age.
