About Yacht Waivers

Pilotage is compulsory for all pleasure craft over 500 GT entering Canadian waters.


When Captain McCallum is signed onto your vessel as a 'Deck Officer', and he has conduct of the vessel, the Pacific Pilotage Authority may grant a 'Waiver of Compulsory Pilotage' to your vessel. You will not be required to have a Pilot and you will not be required to pay Pilotage Fees.


BC Yacht Waivers can assist you with completing the application process.


For more information on the Pilotage Waivers please visit the Pacific Pilotage Website at  or send us an email
