The Salon is sleek and modern and the perfect place for guests to relax with a cocktail. You and your guests can enjoy dinner on the mid-level Dinig Deck.

Pacific Yacht Charters in Vancouver was simply an amazing experience!! I was looking for something different for our wedding, as we were coming from Northern BC. I loved how everything could be done on the yacht! We had our ceremony on board then set sail for a beautiful 4 hour cruise, mingled then had a very delicious buffet style dinner! You can opt for plated dinners as well but we did buffet and everyone was raving on the freshness and quality of the food, the flavours were so well done! We had cake on board as well as dancing and drinks! It was the smoothest ride I was worried about getting sea sick but it was a wonderful sunny day! I started planning my wedding a little over 1 year before the date via email as I lived far away. They were so accommodating for us and when I did make it down to Vancouver I would meet them at the yacht to have a look and discuss questions. There was never any confusion with pricing or anything they were very upfront about it all. It was a night to remember for sure, all of my guests couldn't believe how elegant it was on board. Wish I could do it all over again!

Me and my husband got married in the yacht on May 28 2016. Unfortunately it was raining so hard that day :( nothing like we planned. However, Carisa and her staff are very accommodating with any last minute change. I would really wanted a open deck ceremony ,however we ended up having the ceremony in the second level due to the heavy rain. No complaint to Carisa and PYC, very nice service and great food during the whole event. And the most important thing, is we got married at the end of day :)
