We had a wonderful day on our cruise - even stayed out for 6 1/2 hours instead of the normal 5 1/2 hours. The hosts were very informative about the whole area around Ucluelet. We saw seals, sea lions, a bear, a whale, many eagles and sea birds plus the scenery was gorgeous. Be sure and include the lunch with... More

First read of Archipelago cruise on Trip Advisor, but were skeptical anything could be that great. Having now experienced it first hand, our expectations were exceeded. The cruise provided a lens into a world in coastal BC we don't get to see. There were the plentiful wildlife sightings....bear, bald eagle, whale, sea otter, sea lions, seal and many types of...

Very informative tour with a great lunch and all so perfectly done with two of the best hosts possible. We saw a bear, sea otters, two kinds of seals and sea lions, many... More

We arrived at the dock in pouring rain and were met by a very friendly Toddy who explained that due to the weather conditions they weren't sure how much of the tour they could do but would do their best. We started off in the harbour seeing two Black Bears, Bald Eagles and Sealions. The weather improved dramatically and we... More

This ocean adventure was made extraordinary by the way our hosts, Toddy and Al, made sure that we were able to experience so much of what the Pacific coast has to offer in the way of wildlife! Just out of the harbour, Toddy spotted 3 bald eagles and the spectacles just kept on coming! From seals, to sea lions, black... More

I booked the Wildlife Tour after seeing a photo book in our hotel lobby, pictures looked good, price reasonable. The boat was well equipped, well laid out, roomy even though it can hold 23 passengers. You can view by sitting on the bow (cushions provided) and seats many, or you can view from up top. If you want there is... More

In the first 10 minutes of our cruise we saw bald eagles, herons and bears! Toddy and Al were so incredibly friendly and I personally thought Al was hilarious. They told very interesting stories throughout the trip which made the it even more exciting. They had everything we could have wanted or needed to be comfortable on the tour; blankets,... More
