Eddie and Tamara were excellent. They were both very professional and gave a thorough safety briefing. My family and I were fortunate to be their first customers for the summer season and they did not disappoint!

I can really recommend Kawatsi Tours. This is a serious company! The area of Port Hardy should be more than the way to the inside passage. You can enjoy there a wonderful nature and an interesting culture of the first nations!

Not much good to say about this operator since they cancel without previous notice once we were there and we had checked in in the hotel owned by the same company.

I took the scenic boat and wildlife tour with Tom. There was no safety briefing or mention of life jackets. We spent 2 hours on a historic site mostly looking for beads on the beach, and one hour travel to and from. Tom told us about himself and his family. I was hoping for a scenic boat and wildlife tour.

Hi Garth, We're sorry to hear that you found your tour disappointing and sincerely apologize for letting you down. Our understanding is that due to a lack of visibility from fog in the area a decision was made to limit on the water time, which we understand would be frustrating. Thank you for taking the time to provide us with feedback, and know that we have made changes to our safety policy.

We had only 6 hours in Prince Rupert and booked the tour to the Nakwakto Falls. Our guides Erik and Thomas made an excellent job. We did not only see the falls, but also spotted humpback whales, sea lions and other marine life. Also the visit to the remains of the former village of first nation people and the visit to their school in Port Hardy turned out to be very interesting. We could have spend much more time with Eric and Thomas-a tour we can recommend 100 percent.
