"COLLECT MOMENTS, NOT THINGS." On Vancouver Island, you can immerse in our Wildlife. Everywhere on Vancouver Island is teeming with wildlife, creature's great and small; the land up here still belongs to mother nature. Our waterways are what we're famous for.The unique currents caused by ebbing and flooding tides charge a food chain that reaches from phytoplankton up through herring, salmon, dolphins, seals, orcas and humpback whales, among myriad other marine mammals and wildlife you'll find in the straights and open waters surrounding the Discovery Islands. From Campbell River, hop onto our boats and head out on the water off the Discovery Islands, Desolation sound, and sometimes the sunshine coast for a glimpse of a pod of orcas or a Humpback breaching the surface. Porpoises and Dolphins can sometimes be seen playing in the wake of our boats. Above all, what we love about the wilderness here; it's still wild. It's why, no matter how far away we go, we always come back. It's the greatest risk of coming here, you never want to leave! « less

We took 2 trips in 2 days, both were incredible. While not necessarily the most prolific appearance of animals, the depth of knowledge Jos possesses had us feeling a bond with the land its people and animal life. Captivated the whole time.

We had an amazing experience on our first whale watching trip! It was definitely one of the highlights of our summer. We spent a gorgeous day on the ocean in the zodiac...the ride alone was a blast! The bonus was the sunshine, breathtaking panoramic views, salty sea spray, and of course seeing some WHALES! We saw eagles, dolphins, orcas, and... More

We really liked their whale watching tour. The zodiacs are pretty fast and maneuverable, they are sufficiently comfortable and feel safe. We went quite a distance, more than I would have expected. We saw many orcas, plus dolphins, sea lions andf an eagle. The scenery there is wonderful, much better than a whale watching tour on the open sea! Five... More

Thanks for your review, we really appreciate this, it's a good feedback towards us. I'm really happy that you gave us 5 stars for the whale watch, that's one of the things we try to set as our goal. I also must say that this year we had some challenges with the grizzly trips, as we are depending on the... More

Received an email 2 days before cancelling our trip, fortunately we were in a motel with wifi & checked emails or we may have turned up expectantly. Managed to book with another company. Email stated that an email to them hadn't been sent, when you're charging £200 + per person for a trip surely it's the companies job to check... More

My wife and I took three tours in three days with Eagle Eye and loved each one of them. Jos the owner led two of the tours and Lee led the third. The grizzly bear tour was the highlight - we saw sea lions, dolphins, eagles, orcas, seals, and six grizzly bears - including three cubs and one bear within... More

Yesterday was a beautiful day weather-wise but being on the water with Eagle Eye and finding whales plus other wildlife made it very special. Granted, when we arrived, I was a bit put off by the fact that we were going in Zodiacs, not on a larger vessel (my hubby booked the trip). I like the security of a larger... More

We booked via Island Daily deals (4 hour trip). We told them over the phone we had four vouchers, and they said it was fine. In person the same person over the phone took issue with the vouchers. Luckily we managed to get on the boat. The two stars are attributed to Elvis, who was a great guide and worked... More

We spent 6 hours on the water scooting around the Inside Passage looking for whales and other wildlife, escorted by our able guide Elvis. Check-in was simple, all equipment provided and the open boat was comfortable enough for the day. A simple, tasty lunch was provided at our Stuart Island stop. Although the whales seemed to be hiding on us,... More

Pros of this type of wildlife watching are: The zodiac felt safe, took rapids easily, you can get very close to shorelines, it can go fast so excitement in the ride adds enjoyment for many. The suits are surprisingly comfortable and warm. We just came back from a 4/5 hour tour, it was a beautiful July day. We saw lots... More
