High Seas Drifter is an iconic West Coast vessel and the core of our operations

High Seas Drifter is an iconic West Coast Vessel and the core of our operations. She creates the ultimate setting and atmosphere for our clients to have truly unique and memorable adventures. Many clients say spending time on the historic Drifter is the highlight of their trip.

She is presently CSI certified for commercial work and can accommodate 10 passengers and two crew comfortably.

Built during what is known as ‘The Golden Era of West Coast Shipbuilding’, she was a Torpedo M12′ and named the ‘Atlin Post’. The ‘Atlin Post’ and sister ship the ‘Chilko Post’ were used as ‘Torpedo Recovery’ vessels.

In 1945 the government repurposed the vessel for ‘Fisheries Patrol’ along the coast of British Columbia. After her retirement from Fisheries the vessel was sold into private hands and has continued to work commercially.

She sleeps 12 and is equipped with 2 double staterooms, 1 single estate room, 1 forward stateroom with 4 single bunks, another 2 bunks along a companion way area. There are 2 shared bathrooms complete with showers, sink and heads (toilets), commercial grade galley, fresh water maker, laundry facilities, drying room and a beautiful salon for relaxing and evening entertainment.  The Drifter is the perfect mix of nautical history and the modern amenities you need to be comfortable
