This becomes critical on the return charter from the ship when we are loaded with your fish. Do not forget, you will be returning with 1, 2 or more 50-60 pound boxes of dressed fish. If you are flying home from Vancouver, by packing light you may save yourself significant dollars by having your personal items as carry on. Soft sided luggage preferred.
Bring non-slip shoes, a windbreaker, sweatshirts or sweater, extra pants and shorts. Include warm socks, gloves, sunscreen, sunglasses, camera, and a swimsuit for the hot tub.
Include medications in your carry on luggage through your journey, there is a limited supply of over the counter medications on board if required.
For those who may suffer periodic “motion sickness” we suggest you take medication the night before your departure to the ship and then again in the morning. This allows the medication to get into your system and a more comfortable first afternoon.
Satellite phone service is available on the ship at a charge. Emergency messages to the Charlotte Queen ship can be relayed through either our office or airport coordinator.
We recommend that you consider purchasing travel insurance in case of unforseen family emergencies, sicknesses or other conditions that may result prior to your trip.
If you are planning to overnight in Vancouver may we suggest the following Hotels close to the airport. These hotels run airport shuttles and have freezers to accommodate your fish.
