Book one of our buses for your own event or to provide transport to one of our adventures. Both buses are available throughout the year for charters on Vancouver Island or to anywhere within the Province of BC.
Our guests book buses for team events, pub crawls, birthday & Christmas parties, and many other activities.
Both buses have been converted for river rafting operations. Amenities include CD/MP3 system, washroom & change room facilities, clothes hanging storage and cargo room inside the rear of the bus. We also have trailering capability if you have a lot of equipment to bring on your trip.
Bus 9103 is licensed for 40 passengers, while Bus 9104 is licensed for 53 passengers. 9104 has 3/2 split seating, comfortable for 43 adults or 53 youth.
Custom quotes are available for your specialized charter. Please check with us for pricing. All rates include the services of an experienced, licensed professional driver.
Commercial regulations limit drivers shifts and driving time.
Hourly: $95 per hour, minimum 2 hour charge. Time over the 2 hour minimum is charged per half hour increments.
Daily: Contact us for your custom quote. Most companies charge a minimum of 10 times the hourly rate as a day rate. We believe that we provide a more cost effective option that reflects your actual driving time by charging a lower day rate plus fuel.
Ski Shuttle: Ski charters to Mt. Washington are available.
Other Costs: Base charter rates do not include driver gratuity, ferry fares, parking or toll fees. These fees will be added to the charter if applicable. Use of our open trailer is available at an additional $50 per day charge. Overnight charters will be charged $50 per day for the driver's meal allowance. Driver accommodation (single only) must also be provided or will be added to the charter costs.
Gravel Road Surcharge: Charters that travel on gravel roads will have a $1 per kilometre distance surcharge added based on total off-pavement mileage. This charge covers the gravel portion of travel to locations such as Bamfield and Cape Scott.
Note: 12% government HST and 2% Environmental Sustainability Levy will be added to all charter rates until March 31, 2013. Starting April 1, government GST will change to 5%.
