This Whale Watching Tour was one of the best days in my life (I am close to 40...). The whole tour lasted a bit more than 6 hours, with appr. 4h directly with a group of Orcas. It is a small boat which ensures a privacy and close contact to the Orcas and this incredibly experienced guide Garry. He is... More

My friend and I had an awesome 7hr tour. We were lucky enough to start out with a humpback whale and moved on to killer whales, dolphins and on our way back saw some seals. A huge thank you to Gary for an amazing day!!! :)

Gary the owner and tour guide was very personable and friendly. He really takes a real interest in his passengers, and is a wonderful mind of information and knowledge of the surroundings and nature. We had a brilliant day, that extended beyond the time allocated as Gary was determined to find us pods of whales to see on his tip,... More

We took the 6 hour Whale Watching tour and it did not disappoint. We were able to get close enough to the animals that we could see them clearly, but never felt like we were intruding on them. Garry was knowledgeable and ensured that we had the experience we wanted and you always felt safe on his boat. Overall the... More

We joined the 6-hour whalewatching tour and we really recommend the tour with Garry! Garry is passionated about his job and tells a lot during the tour: about the natives, the nature and everything you see. Garry respects the nature and wildlife. The aboriginal journeys is a little company and the way they work is personal and we like that!... More

The family and I enjoyed the 6 hour whale and wildlife tour from Campbell River. We visited in August 5th and we were lucky to see, Killer Whales, Bald Eagles, Seals, and a Grizzly Bear. Gerry knows the area very well and has years of experience being on the water. He makes the extra effort when you find a pod... More

This is, BY FAR, the best wildlife tour out there. If you are looking to have a great adventure and see some wildlife, look no further, this is the tour for you. One of the things I really liked is that the boat was enclosed so you do not have to wear a waterproof suit for the ride and you... More

This was my third trip with Gary out of Campbell River and each one has been a different adventure. No one knows the waters or history better. Will be going again this summer. I have seen orcas, baby orcas, tidal rapids and feeding eagles. And the sandwiches for lunch are worth the trip.

We thoroughly enjoyed our excursion with Garry, He was really knowledgable, especially since we were in his life-long back yard. In addition to searching out and finding two small pods of orcas and following them for 2 hours, we learned a great deal about them as well as the ocean currents. It would have been wonderful to find other animals... More

My fiancé and I took the 4 hour wildlife tour. It was raining that day so it was great to be in a covered boat. We saw some great ocean rapids & a ton of eagles. We didn't see any whales because they were too far south and the weather wasn't cooperating. Our very knowledgeable guide Garry said safety first... More
