    Interesting question. The Marine Charter Assoc. is, or at least was a kind of an umbrella entity at the Victoria Harbor facilities, where they oversee all the other charter boats in the area.

    Things changed a bit back in 2007 or 2008, when the MCA was evicted from the Victoria harbor facilities. Dispute was over old land claims and the Victoria area was government property, but I was never quite sure just what they were forced to do.

    I know that there was a big uproar from tourist vendors as any such marina facilities that could accommodate all the charter operations, would have to be located far out of town.

    As far as I can see, the address for MCA is still in Victoria, so it might be a good idea in your conversations with them, to ask about any re-locations they may have undergone.

    As a company, the MCA has strong ties in the community, but you may actually be on a charter run by some other vendor, as MCA oversees them all.

    Not sure if this hel.ps, but I thought it worth mentioning..........d:o)
