We had a great day out on the catamaran. We went out on the morning trip and managed to see seals, sea lions, eagles and some porpoise from a distance.

We stayed in James Bay in Victoria, a short walk from Fisherman's Wharf, which is where we discovered this company.

The boat was comfortable and we saw... More

As someone who works in marine education and first considers the environment with every decision, I can tell you with complete confidence that this company is the one to support. On top of the educational value of their tours, the company itself supports conservation initiatives with 1% for the planet and a $2.00 eco-fee. They incorporate “green” into their business... More

We loved our whale watching tour even though we did not get to see any whales. Saw porpoises, seals, sea lions and more. The boat was amazing and they were so accommodating to us with our small children. It was a great day in the Pacific Northwest!

We had the most fantastic day on the water watching the T49A pod. They travel so fast. We would pull ahead of them and watch them go by and then get ahead and watch some more. A few times they changed direction and came straight at the boat and went under it so we got incredible views of them.(when they... More
