Island Explorer 5: Private Charters
The Island Explorer 5 is the most state-of-the-art vessel on the entire west coast, boasting impressive speed and high-tech electronics.
Island Explorer 5 went into service in 2017. She is USCG certified for 150 passengers. Inside and outside seating is available for all guests, making her perfect for large groups year-round. She has a state of the art A/V system for presentations in the upper and lower salons with 7 flat screen TV’s and a great sound system. The full sized galley with beer and wine is great for catering. IE5 was designed specifically for whale and wildlife tours, but is so comfortable that she is great for large groups and private charters of any kind.
