Went out on the Salish Sea today through Boundary Pass with Captain Joe, Lilli ana Valerie. We were blessed with T86As, T101s, and T124As hunting Sea Lions. T86A also had a calf approx 1yr old, and was outta control with excitement My partner happily took around 800 photos on her DSLR from a safe distance of 200+ meters away. Wished we could have taken more, but am beyond stoked with the ones we got. This is the only acceptable way to view sea life - in the wild where they belong.

Hi there

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us a great review! Awh, how great that you got to see some transient orcas and a baby calf too! They steal our hearts every time we see them!

Please do feel free to share any photos with us. We love to see how our guests tours went and what wildlife our guests end up seeing because every tour is so different to the next.

We can't wait to have you join us on another tour again!

Me and my son went on the semi-covered boat for a whale watching experience. Valerie was helpful answering our questions. Nice they include hot drinks as it's quite cool and windy on the open water. Lots of great scenery and we did get the chance to spot some Transient Orcas T65a.

Joe and Lili were great. They were knowledgeable and tried really hard to find us whales. Alas we had no luck.... however; the tour group gives a guarantee so we have a credit to come back! The boat was nice and gloves, toques and blankets were provided to keep warm.

Highly recommend this tour group and our guides!

Hi there,

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us. We are sorry that you were not successful in seeing whales that day. Every tour is unpredictable and different in terms of what can be spotted. Just like whale watching anywhere in this region, or the world, sometimes we aren't lucky enough to see whales.

We do stand by our whale sighting guarantee and encourage our guests to join us on another tour in future at no cost, in the instance that no whales have been sighted. The experience of our guests is really important to us so please do contact us to arrange another booking.

Thank you so much for your recommendation and for you kind feedback about Joe and Lily! We hope to see you soon!

Terrific morning cruise on the Zodiac with Mark to watch the orcas (we saw four!) enjoy a seal lunch. Exciting and jostling.

Thank you very much for your 5-star review Cheryl. The Zodiac is so much fun, we are happy that you enjoyed it too! So great to hear that you got to see four Orcas! We have been seeing plenty of Bigg's (transient) Orca's recently and the weather has been terrific! We hope you will join us on another adventure in future!

Loved the knowledgeable and friendly staff! It was a wonderful experience, despite the cold winds! The Captain drove farther North and we were able to see 9 orcas!! It was a great experience. Highly recommend!

Thank you for your recommendation and your 5-star review! We really appreciate it. Whatever the weather, it can get very chilly on the open waters, so we advise guests to wrap up warm :) We have gloves, hats and blankets available on board. We are so glad you had a great time and saw a pod of 9 orcas - an awesome experience!
