We are a family of four including three year old twins from Alberta. We wanted to get out on the water the water, learn a bit about the area and see some wildlife. The whale watching tours are too lon, expensive and not well suited to young kids. EcoCruising was the perfect option for us. We ended up being the... More

Captain "Crunch" Brian was our host for this memorial service, as we scattered my mum-in-law's ashes in the Pacific as per her request. He was sensitive to the occasion, and suggested we hold the service and then do the eco tour. Highly recommend this company AND this process for a memorial service, whether you have ashes to dispose of or... More

The tours with Brian Smiley are informative and he'll do his best to make sure you have a chance to see the wildlife in the area. July and August are great for seeing the newly hatched seagull & cormorant chicks and August is when the Harbour seal pups are born. The area is home to migrating summer and winter bird... More

In May 2013 I went out on 2 ecocruises with this Sidney, BC company. I was pleasantly surprised at how easily Brian Smiley accomodated my walker onboard the very comfortable boats. Completely enclosed by a glass wraparound, these cushioned bench boats are very luxurious! It rained a bit, but we didn't care; we were warm and comfy and could still... More
