This was out of Victoria BC on our 8/28/11 cruise to Alaska from SF. Our cabin on Aloha deck was almost on top of the pilot boat as the transfer was made. I was lucky enough to be hanging around our balcony and make this video.

Hey Skinny .. nice job. This is something that most passengers miss. Thanks for sharing.

I love watching the pilots disembark the ship. The best one I've gotten so far is here:

Good video, thanks for posting. My thought watching it: trained professionals, don't try this at home.

Makes you appreciate all the hard work done on our behalf.

Forgot to mention I liked the choice in music for the pilot transfer. Also note the pilot waited for the boat to come to him, looks like the smart way to go.
