Here is some footage of the water taxi made to look like a fish boat in a storm for an insurace commercial. The complete process
took under a day to dress and shoot, and the boat was back working as a taxi the next morning.

Here is Erik climbing aboard the precariously placed Lisa Lea. We were dispatched by C-Tow to get her off the rocks of East Howe Sound last week. It took the Howard Point and The SC Water Taxi most of the day but we got her off unharmed. Go to the Gallery to see more pics.

Not exactly a work boat, but we're happy to welcome the Dauntless into the family for the occasional Sunday afternoon off.

We have been quite busy on the water. Sunshine Coast Water Taxi recently went in for a new paint job and routine service and looks better than ever. We have enjoyed a busy season running students to Sea To Sky Outdoor School on Keats Island (thanks Tim!). We have also been busy bringing people to weddings on the islands this month. With the weather this nice it has been amazing through out Howe Sound.
