Booked this months ahead to celebrate a special birthday, easy email communication. Fortunate to have a lovely sunny day, and what an amazing time! After a warm and friendly welcome and being introduced to other guests we were off on the comfortable and spacious boat. There was plenty of room for the 15 guests with choices of where to sit...

We spent a lovely day with Al and Toddy. We saw a bear, eagles, sealions, seals, seaotters and three humpback whales. While these animals were fascinating, the best of the trip was the beautiful scenery around the Broken Islands and the mood on board.

This tour was recommended by our host and so we went down to the docks to see what it was all about. Quite luxurious, we thought, not usually our style and not quite in tune with the rest of our trip. But Al and Toddy are such nice, relaxed hosts on their boat that it was an immense pleasure to...

Don't choose anyone else but these marvelous and generous people Toddy.and Al to go wildlife watching with as their trip is informative, entertaining, visual and above all relaxing. They immediately set you at ease and you feel at home on their boat which amazingly enough has stabilizers for a smooth run even in choppy seas. Lunch catered by Norwoods is... More

We had a great day with toddy and al! They welcome you into their home and did everything in their power to make the day a success. We saw a black bear, lots of eagles, a grey whale and a humpback whale with a kalf! We also had a nice lunch on deck. If you are looking for a great... More

If you have to choose one wildlife cruise in this area, take this one with Al and Toddy! They have a lovely 53' yacht that is very comfortable and easy to move around on. No elbowing out your neighbour and jostling for position for viewing or photography. The yacht is Al and Toddy's home and they welcome their guests with... More

My family went on a 6 hour tour starting at 10. Al and Toddy are great hosts, they told us lots of interesting things about the animals and the region. They are very commited and enthusiastic about what they do. They try to approach as close as it's possible and safe to animals. During this day we saw a black... More

Highly Recommended - This is the quintessential "kick back and relax" wildlife sightseeing tour. The boat is very spacious, well appointed and stable. From the excellent lunch option, to concerns about time and sea-legs issues the crew has you well taken care of. Toddy and Al, the crew, are friendly, fun, gracious and very willing to share their knowledge of... More
