The five hour wildlife cruise is fun, relaxed, and informative. Al and Toddy actually live on the boat when not giving tours, but they make everyone very welcome with lots of jokes and amenities. We went in a group of about 20, and the boat...More

This is a really nice experience to have in Ucluelet! The hosts are very pleasant people and their boat is very pretty. Because it's a small number of people on the cruise, it feels very personal and cozy.

Hello, We are now closed until early May. However there are other companies which stay open all year. They will run in November, weather permitting. You could try either Subtidal Adventures or Beachcomber Ocean Tours.

We see puffins the very odd time - when we do it is usually in the spring - but overall VERY seldom. It is best to assume we won't see any. There are always lots of other bird species to see though!
