Use your US passport. As a Canadian, you would have to import the boat.

Hi Jackdale. I am fine with the operator card. I still have mine from when they came out with that program. I almost pitched it when I moved south but must have been thinking properly that day and kept it along with my CAD VHF Marine Operator License. I guess it was worth the $20 after all.

Thank you.

I kinda was thinking the same thing. As a dual we are suppose to present the passport of the country we are entering first (i.e. CAD Passport), but in this case I can see a whole slew of issues with the boat. Even with proof of permanent US residency and citizenship I see issues with that can of worms.

Thanks again

You can "call in" from some customs docks.

Start here for information:

From what I gather, you need a Nexus card and everyone onboard does too in order to do the "call in" method. That's ok. Whatever works. It did say if you are transiting through say to AK, you can call it in. Interesting.

Re: American Boat Canadian Waters

The customs docks at Port Sidney and the Van Isle fuel dock have phones on which you check in. I have checked in by phone in Victoria on my last passages from HI.

Re: American Boat Canadian Waters

We've cleared in using Canpass. Just call 877-Canpass. 3 out of 5 times they didn't come down to the boat (this was in Nova Scotia) , just did it over the phone. Once was the first time and the second we had a shotgun for polar bear protection. (Different story!) We're U.S. and the boat is flagged U.S. We wintered the boat in Newfoundland because we had a shaft problem. (wink, wink) There's a permit from customs to leave your boat if you're having work done. We rented jack stands from a local guy and he checked on the boat a few times during the winter. I know there's been talk specifically a Cruising World article last year, that says this policy is ending but local yacht folks we've talked to on the Canadian east coast say you can still do it.
