A great tour among the Broken Group Islands and the coastal waters from Ucluelet in a superbly fitted out boat. You shouldn't want for anything with Alan and Toddy as your hosts. Wonderful scenery, lots of wildlife with commentary from a couple with years of experience of the area. Lunch is an extra and well worth it. The whole experience... More

We had an amazing trip with Archipelago Cruise. Toddy and Al are very hospitable and admirable. It was really nice of them to offer their home (the boat) for other people and the picnic basket presentation was amazing. I highly recommend this trip and would like to do it again.

An excellent wildlife cruise through the Broken Islands hosted by a very hospitable, experienced, live-aboard couple. A beautiful boat and a wonderful cruise. Lots of sea lions, seals, 3 black bears, birds, including flocks of Pacific Loons, and, of course, Bald Eagles. Sure beats a zodiac cruise!

What a GREAT find! If you like beautiful coastal views, wildlife galore and gracious hosts....then make your way to Uclulet, British Columbia and cruise with Toddy and Al on an Archipelago Wildlife cruise. The adventure starts at 9:40AM when you are greeted by Toddy and then board their 53 foot cruiser. We stayed up front in the bow most of... More

Our hosts were so good at finding whales, bears, sea-lions and a great variety of birds for us, keen to ensure that we saw as much as possible and to share their knowledge and experience with their guests. They made us so welcome onto their floating home and made sure from the start that we would not only be comfortable... More

We were three couples from Iceland/Canada who thoroughly enjoyed this trip out into the Broken islands Group. on a very nice vessel with great hosts, great food and above all plenty of beautiful nature and wildlife, a pleasant guiding attitude and lots of information. One is made to feel like an old friend by the skipper and his/her co-skipper.........

Toddy and Al, really put their hearts into giving people a special experience of the wildlife and history of the area. Every day is different on the ocean and we have been enjoyed this tour twice already and would do it again!

September 16, 2014 we cruised through the Broken Islands Group out of Ucluelet aboard the Rain Coast Maiden. Co-Captains Al and Toddy were welcoming, down-to-earth and perfect hosts. We received an ongoing dialogue of interesting tidbits about what we were viewing be it flora, fauna, wildlife, history of the region or native lore. The scenery is other-worldly in its beauty...

"Welcome to our home!" said Toddy and Al as ten of us boarded their beautiful 52' cruising home. They are the perfect hostesses...They share their love of the Ucluelet/Broken Island area, their knowledge of the wildlife and lots of entertaining stories. We've never had such clear instructions on how to adjust binoculars! The scenery was spectacular...sure it would have been... More

On a foggy day in Ucluelet, BC, Alan and Toddy Landry, our hosts, worked very hard to make sure we were able to see the Broken Islands. Through fog banks and some poor conditions, they made our cruise a wonderful, beautiful adventure. The gourmet meal was served on deck with a view of the islands. Terrific! You will never find...
