Another great day with Campbell River Whale Watching. We went with them last year and had a great experience so used them again this year. Yet again the trip was superb. We started off finding a group of transient Orca and followed them to a small island with a large seal population. After the Orcas we headed north and found... More

A company with the respect for the marine life and knowledgable to boot. We had a great visit this week and saw Orcas, Humpbacks including a breaching whale and Sea Lions, seals. Loved the approach that Leif took, seems a great guy and certainly seems to care about the experience for all. Good lunch and to my surprise loved the... More

I live in Campbell River and have been out on countless adventures with CR Whale Watching over the years. Not once have I been disappointed! The company is a class act! They have positive and bubbly receptionists and super knowledgeable and professional drivers. Their catered lunches are always delicious and plentiful and they stop at the most picturesque places to... More

Living in an area such as ours, so many of us often take for granted the beauty surrounding us. For someone who gets out as often as you have it is refreshing to see that you still take the time to let nature soak in. We are indeed blessed to live in such an area. As a company we feel... More

We spent the entire day out on the ocean from 9:00 a.m until about 5:00 p.m. We had a wonderful day seeing White Sided Dolphins, Grizzlies, Black Bear, Sea Lions, Seals Orcas and our beautiful B.C. in the beautiful sunshine all the way. Thank you Aaron for a wonderful and memorable day!

My family chose the full day tour that started around 9:30 in the morning. We set off with Aaron, our tour guide. The boat was going so fast that it barely rocked around, so seasickness was not an issue at all. On the way to the orca area, we saw bald eagles on tall trees, harbor seals on rocks, and... More

Finally saw dolphins in the wild! By far my favorite part of the tour. Did you know they chase your boat? Beyond amazing. Aaron was great in finding all the right spots for the animals. We saw humpback whales, dolphins (big pod of them), seals, sea lions, and one adorable bear. We were basically in awe the entire trip. Even... More

We chose the all day whale watching tour and did not regret it! Our group of 10 people were made up of two families and comprised adults and teenagers and I can safely say that we all enjoyed ourselves. We had a beautiful sunny day for the trip. After sorting out the formalities and donning our survival suits we boarded... More

We are residents of the Island and had a voucher for a whale watching trip with these folks. Prior to booking we checked the local weather for the week and picked what looked to be the best day. Surprise surprise, turned out the weather man was right. We had foul weather gear with us in case it was needed but... More
