We went out on the water in the zodiac to watch the fireworks on July 1st. After suiting up in survivor suits, we headed to Quadra Island to pick up another couple. From there we took a little tour of Gowland Harbour stopping near April Point Lodge to whistle to George and Georgina, a couple of bald eagles who swooped... More

Leaving Campbell river at 0900 and getting back at 1700 this was a day well worth remembering. A very good briefing and fitting out with "whale watching clothing" was followed by a high speed trip past Ripple Rock in the Seymour Narrows and on to the Johnstone Strait. We stopped off at Port Neville for a light picnic lunch and... More

We had the pleasure of having a private guided tour with Erin as our guide. He was extremely informative and friendly. We saw orcas and humpback whales and a highlight was to see a large pod of dolphins. We would highly recommend Campbell river whale watching to anyone.

We were going to visit Victoria and decided to go further up the island based on seeing whales. We were told that the chance of seeing whales was about 95%. We realize that wildlife is unpredictable but our trip up the coast and the travel time was in hope of seeing whales for our family of 5. We paid the... More

It is indeed disappointing that we cannot produce Whale sightings at a 100% success rate and because of this we offer a gift certificate to those who unfortunately miss out. Wildlife movements are unpredictable however we do pride ourselves in our ability to find the Wildlife each day. What also seems to be unpredictable is the mail service! Your family... More

We enjoyed a wonderful day of fantastic scenery and nature at its best! The guides/captains of the zodiacs are very dedicated to showing off all there is to offer in the ocean, on the shores and flying above. Lunch was very good and a nice place to have a break. I would highly recommend this tour...the only suggestion is to... More

Thank you for your kind words. It was my pleasure to spend the day with you and your family. Please bring the boys back when they are older and we can reminisce about days gone by. Remember, September is a great time to be in this area because not only are the Resident Orca here, so are the Grizzly Bears!... More
