Malaspina Water Taxi operates two boats.

Eagle XIV is equipped to take up to twelve passengers and gear or kayaks. It is an aluminum-hulled Eaglecraft vessel, heavy built and designed to handle all weather conditions.

Both our water taxi vessels were proudly designed and constructed by local boat yards in Pender Harbour.

Our boats are both equipped with Radar, GPS, VHS and depth sounders as well as all required safety equipment. Our skippers are Transport Canada certified professionals.

Our vessel Pender Eagle is a 27 foot fibreglass boat powered by a low-emission 2008 330 Hp diesel engine with a dual prop outdrive. Cruising speed is 25 knots. Pender Eagle can take 12 passengers and gear or 8 kayakers, kayaks and gear. This vessel performs extremely well under all weather condition faced in the Malaspina Strait.
