Corporate boat cruises are the ideal way to wind up a weekend of meetings and reviews. That’s what a lucky group of 12 businessmen were fortunate enough to experience aboard Golden Eagle Charters on the picturesque waterways surrounding Vancouver.

The goal was for the group to sample some of the different aspects of Vancouver’s fishing and crabbing throughout the journey along the Burrad Inlet. Departing from the Plaza of Nations Marina, we began our boat cruise down the inlet and towards the crab grounds. Once the crab pots are out, the local crab need time to pick up the scent. So we left them there to be collect later in the day, allowing the group to enjoy the rest of their cruise.

A few members of the group had the latest in Digital SLR technology and the varied scenery gave them a chance to use multiple lenses, capturing some amazing photos aboard the Golden Eagle Egg. The snow capped mountains and pleasant weather made for superb photographic conditions for the group. It was truly an experience and opportunity that you can only have on a chartered boat.

Once out past the giant rustic sea freighters, it was time to sample some Vancouver fishing. Although still early in the season, the corporate group was keen to give it a go and get some lines in the water. While waiting for a bite, the group shared chilled beverages and cooked up a storm on the top deck’s barbecue. Unfortunately on this particular cruise the salmon didn’t want to play ball. It came time to see whether the crab pots had produced the goods.

The first pot landed on deck and the group was over the moon to see it was full of plump local crab. While the avid photographers on board quickly snapped away at the crabs, the second pot didn’t quite match the results of the first. Never the less, the group was more than happy with the day’s catch. The afternoon aboard Golden Eagle Charters was well enjoyed by all, and a few of the local members of the corporate group were even lucky enough to take home a feast of crab.

If your business is thinking about treating your staff to something a bit different, try Golden Eagle Charters. A boat cruise along the scenic Burrard Inlet could be just what you’re looking for.
