We saw orcas, a lot of dolphins, hundreds of seals, sea lions, bald eagles, a black bear and much more. It was an unbelievable tour which I'll never forget. There was very friendly staff. I can fully recommend it.

We are a family of 4 from the UK, including a 17 and 19 year old. We went out with Aaron and athough I suspect you need an element of luck, the combination of Aaron's knowledge and some small luck, meant that we saw humpback whales, orcas, more bald eagles than you can shake a stick at, plus seals, dolphins...

Today we joined the 4 hour afternoon whalewatching/wildlife tour with our guide Rhys. We saw sea lions, eagles, seals, hummingbirds and two humpback whales! It was exciting to go past the whirlpools while whatching eagles take the fish out of the water. The views were amazing and I really enjoyed being on the water surrounded by only amazing nature and... More

We booked rather spontaneously and chose to go on 2 tours on 2 days. The first tour was a very nice boat ride, we did manage to get fairly close to one humpback whale, who refused to show us more than his humpback. This is ok for me, since it is a wild animal and not a trained circus pet.... More

Super interesting 8 hour trip between the beautiful islands in the passage between the mainland and Vancouver Island. Lots of wildlife, several very close passes to the humpback whales, groups of Dolphins, Seals, Sea Lions and feading Bald Eagles. Not to forget a super lunch in a very special location. Thanks to our Captain/Guide Shea for an Unforgettable trip!
