We started having fun before we even left the dock, spotting starfish in the water in the harbor and watching eagles. Toddy and Al are incredible knowledgeable about the area and the wildlife and spent the day sharing that knowledge with all of us. They never rushed, allowing us to spend the time to get the perfect shot or really... More

The Archipelago Wildlife Cruise was amazing. We found it to be very enjoyable and informative. We saw a bear, many bald eagles, seals, sea lions, sea otter, and birds. The orcas were out of the area the day of our cruise, but we have been forewarned. Toddy and Al were full of information about the wildlife and the history of... More

Toddy and Al went to great lengths to make sure that we all had a wonderful day out on their boat. I'm a nervous passenger on boats but they made me feel thoroughly relaxed (even to the point of lending me some anti sea sickness wrist bands to put my mind at rest, they have a basket full of them...

If you are visiting Ucluelet you will be missing out if you do not take a cruise with the Archipelago Wildlife Cruises. Toddy and Alan are wonderful hosts and you feel like you are their guests on the most beautiful boat in the area. Alan is quite a story teller and we learned so much about the area that we... More

Over the years I have been living in BC we went on several wildlife cruises. This is by far the best. Most impressive is the honesty with which Alan and Toddy run their business. When we called to book the tour we were told that the chance seeing a whale is pretty slim. Nevertheless we decided to go on this... More

There was a bear, Eagles, sea lions and sea otters. The boat was comfortable with various sitting options. The owner/operators a husband and... More
