M.V. Tenacious III is a 30-passenger boat with a capacity of 6,000 lbs combined passenger & freight. Its hull is 37’ in length with a 13’ beam launched in June 2009.

This vessel meets all the requirements set out by Transport Canada, and has a captain with a 60-ton Masters ticket and one additional crew member. Because this vessel carries more than 12 passengers it was designed and built to a more stringent Transport Canada standard construction and safety standards. Equipped with two 16-passenger life rafts and fire suppression systems, this makes our vessels extremely safe and reliable. It has a collision compartment forward along with four separate water tight compartments, which, if any one of these compartments is flooded it will remain upright.


This high speed 37’ Eaglecraft has a cruising speed of 26 knots fully loaded. She has the largest passenger and freight capabilities of any water taxi in the Campbell River area. Luggage, groceries and/or freight are stowed safely and securely in her large watertight storage compartment.
Features include:
  • Powered with two Volvo Penta V6 330 Hp diesel engines
  • Required safety equipment, two 16 passenger life rafts and fire suppression systems
  • Spacious bathroom
  • Seating on two deck levels
  • Certified licensed captains and crew
  • Access to shore with bow boarding steps
