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.

Sailing at Cape Caution

My happy place. Sailing north around Cape Caution aboard Raincoast Conservation research vessel Achiever beautiful sunny skies and a nice westerly made for some good sailing.

Looking along a white sail and out to sea and a blue sky with white, fluffy clouds.

Partnering with Qqs

Stunning views from Achiever

Sometimes the best moments are the ones you weren’t after. A slow day up an estuary in the Great Bear Rainforest aboard Raincoast Conservation research vessel Achiever allows for admiration of the scenery.

Achiever in the light

Morning light shinning down on Raincoast Conservation research vessel Achiever at anchor. The long summer days mean early starts to catch the light, and the wildlife

Evening estuary visitors

An evening visit into the estuary this beauty was happy the river was between us. Raincoast Conservation research vessel Achiever has been exploring the Great Bear this spring to find these wonderful creatures.
