Today we an excellent day, we saw Grizzly Bears, Eagles, seals, and Orcas, our guide Leif was very knowledgeable, fun and patient, and very willing to go that extra mile. At the bears, Drew, and Anthony were very calm and happy to have everyone, they were also very helpful. We would love to do this again.

We had a super fun, enthusiastic guide who knew a lot and was very funny. He managed to show us 3 bears, 4 humpback wales (among them one tiny baby), an enormous group... More

We had a beautiful sunny day with lots of Pacific-sided dolphins and of course Orcas, Sea lions and seals. What a great experience! We could never have thought... More

We did the 6 hour Whale Watching Tour guided by Shea and it was absolutely amazing! Flying through the sea on a Zodiac was worth the money, but add to it the breathtaking waterways and landscapes, and of course Orcas, Porpoises, a Grizzly, Sea Lions, Seals and Eagles, just WOW!
