Captain: Colin Griffinson

Birthplace: Dublin, Ireland

As the Captain and co-owner of the Pacific Yellowfin with his wife, Colin delivers unique luxurious private yacht cruises along the BC coast. As a long-time sufferer of “wooden boat disease”, his love of the water started in childhood in Dublin’s busy DunLaoighre Harbour. From his early experience on fishing trawlers in the North and Irish seas to his first boat, a 72-foot seiner, his passion for boats has spanned more than five decades.

Colin has cruised the BC coast for more than twenty years and his love of the sea and interest in people make him incredibly knowledgeable of all fishing hot spots, beautiful hikes and secret waterfalls. Numerous guests have commented on Colin’s sense of humor and storytelling abilities, with “kids” of all ages enjoying his tales. His mastery over Pacific Yellowfin makes our guests feel utterly safe.

When he’s not working in his Vancouver-based painting and decorating company, Colin can often be found tinkering aboard the Pacific Yellowfin, having a Guinness or our own Pacific Yellowfin Ale.

Chief Deckhand / Wilderness Guide: Nik Coutinho

Meet Nik, our Chief Deckhand and Wilderness Guide, extraordinaire. Born in rural New Jersey, Nik grew up on the banks of the beautiful Niagara River where his love of nature began. Completing his degree in Environmental Studies at York University in Toronto, he then continued his tourism and outdoor recreation program in Sooke, BC. Nik has worked in the coastal waters of BC for the last 4 years as a wilderness guide, kayak guide and deckhand. Along with a great sense of humour and an all-day smile, he comes fully certified to take care of you, safely and enjoyably through interpretation by land and sea. An absolute treat to be around, and will keep you smiling throughout your whole journey.

The trip ranked up near or at the top of the trips we have taken with our family.  The crew was incredible displaying a genuine interest in making sure every detail was address and that everyone had a ball.  Colin has assembled a very eclectic group of amenities on Pacific Yellowfin which I don’t think could be easily replicated elsewhere.  I believe that the itinerary covered some of the most beautiful places on earth.  Our family was exposed to activities that we had not previously experienced.  From motor biking on the islands to the 40 foot waterslide to gathering our own oysters the verdict by my family and friends was unanimous!  Guilty of having too much fun!  Thanks so much for referring us to Colin!  We highly recommend this trip to anyone!


The trip was a total success. Things could not have been much better with the Yellowfin. Her accommodations and her crew were just as I had hoped if not a bit better. The food was very good and the chef was flexible enough to satisfy everyone. Colin and the crew ensured that we never wanted for any activity. Their intimate knowledge of the area is priceless as is their unending patience with the kids. We have chartered several times in the past and can say without doubt that Colin and his crew are the best ever.


A tremendous experience. Beautiful scenery, excellent accommodations, superior captain and crew, and delicious food. This trip was a wonderful adventure for us.


Thanks, thanks, thanks. I am so happy I had the chance to discover this beautiful area. I think words are not enough to describe the breathtaking scenery. The trip was fabulous and so perfect. Life on board is peaceful. The Pacific Yellowfin is an interesting yacht, extremely comfortable and stable. She is maintained in an amazing condition by her wonderful crew! Captain Colin is a very nice and attentive man, and lover of his beautiful area.


Hello Colin and the rest of the FABULOUS crew! We hope your next charters have been fun. Our week with all of you was definitely the best trip of ALL of our lives! You, the crew, were so wonderful and ready to try all of our ideas! We loved you all! You were accommodating, fun, and always happy! Thank you all for that! And the boat was the perfect one for our family; comfortable and with all the right 'toys". And the food: well, what can I say!? It was ALL delicious/perfect size portions and beautifully presented! We miss the meals! So you will definitely see us again!! Have a wonderful end of your summer and we will be in touch! Thank you again from all of us for a truly memorable vacation!
