"Thank-you for providing one of the most wonderful ten days of my life … Never
have I seen such attention and accommodation to the customer's needs as I did on
the Columbia III."
- Pat, Pender Island BC, 2007, 2008, 2009, and 2013
"We are truly in awe of the experience you shared with us. The attention to
detail and the quality of care you show your guests is outstanding. Fern, the
food was incredible, kayaking will always bring back memories of the smells
coming from your galley and the camaraderie shared at the table. Ross, your love
and enthusiasm for the COLUMBIA III and Mothership Adventures always shows in
the stories and knowledge you so freely share. That the two of you have created
this to share with your family is something many of us would love to do but,
very few accomplish. Luke, your incredible outlook made even rainy days bright
and your willingness and excitement in sharing your knowledge of the area
enhanced our experience greatly. Steve, you too do such a great job of making
every day a bright day. It seems you're always there to give us a hand, often
before we even know we need it!
Thank you all for one of the best vacations we've ever had, along with the opportunity to share a week in your lives. We can't thank you enough."
- 2012 Joan and Michael Collins, Publishers, Sea Kayaker Magazine

"Well, we came with great expectations - which were so magnificently surpassed on so many levels:
- the crew was absolutely outstanding,
- the meals were totally amazing thanks to our amazing chef,
- the skipper is hilarious! And such a wealth of local knowledge! Yay!
- The COLUMBIA III is a showpiece - nuff said.
- And then our amazing luck - bears, eagles orcas, sea lions, dolphins, porpoises and breaching humpback whale (in our faces).
Trip of a lifetime! Great new friends! Pure magic! Many thanks and much appreciation."
