Achiever

Our dedicated research vessel, Achiever, is a Transport Canada certified 68 ft, steel hulled sloop that operates seven months a year on the BC coast. We acquired Achiever in 2004 as a platform for our 10,000nm marine survey studying the abundance and distribution of marine mammals and birds. Over the last twelve years Achiever has performed countless trips as a research and education platform for Raincoast and many others across thousands of kilometers of coastline. With Achiever, Raincoast also has the capacity to access our commercial hunting tenures, and monitor areas otherwise out of reach.
