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.

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.

Having spent over 10 years in the restaurant and catering businesses, Ben has found his niche at Pacific Yellowfin to indulge his local, farm-to-table passions.
