The Third Generation

Vince and Sheila have 2 sons, Ian and Mark. Ian became interested in the business when he was quite young, especially the boat tour. By the time he was 12, he was helping out on the boat, in the office with ticket sales and assisting guests. When he was 16, he became our regular first mate on the tour boat every summer. At 18, he started taking the first of 4 courses needed to pass his Small Craft Masters. This certificate allows him to be a tour boat captain, which he completed when he was 20. Ian is involved in operational and advertising decisions and can now run the office when his parents are away.

His goal since grade 7 has been to find a career that allows him the summers off to take over from Dad and captain the tour boat. He graduated from Memorial University of Newfoundland with his B.A. in French. He is currently studying a trade at Nova Scotia Community College.
