This was hands down THE BEST DAY EVER!! My 5 year old and I went with Hurricane Jack and we had an amazing day following a pod of orcas, going through an eagle feeding area, having a hot chocolate break, getting soaked in the rapids and laughing ourselves silly, seeing porpoises, and then (as if that wasn't enough) we watched...

Our family with four teenagers had the most amazing day viewing grizzly bears at Bute Inlet. Reece was our captain/operator and was very friendly, helpful and a very skilled boat operator. The First Nation community that conducted the actual grizzly bear tour were amazing. We saw 13 grizzlies that day and some quite close. Got some terrific photos and have... More

The Grizzly tours have become a "Bucket list" activity here on the westcoast for both young and old. How fortunate we are to live in such a place! I will pass on your complements to both Rhys and the Homalco guides, they are indeed, terrific at what they do! Our drivers and the Homalco guides have a real passion for... More

I've been on quite a few whale watching trips but these were 2 of the best I have ever been on. I did a full day whale watching trip and a full day grizzly watching trip - both amazing! Saw humpbacks and orca both days and around 8 grizzlies on the bear trip to Bute Inlet. The whole area is... More

Almost as soon as we left the marina, we saw two Humpback Whales cruising by. They were headed south and we were headed north, but Captain Jack ensured that we got some pictures of the whales. We continued sailing among the islands and eventually up Bute Inlet to Orford Valley. The skies cleared and upon arrival at Orford Pt, we... More

We booked a spur of the moment afternoon excursion with Go Wild! and I want to send a big thank you to Jack and the team! A member of our group was a nature filmmaker, so he had a ton of questions about the area and Jack went above and beyond in answering them. Shay was our personable tour guide... More

This was our second trip with CRWW, this time with Jim as our boat driver/guide. The previous trip was with Jen. There is a reason why these folks are #1 in their business.
