My best friend was visiting from Edmonton and I felt a great way to showcase the west coast was to take him on a whale watching tour. We arrived in Campbell River just before noon, and most of the boats were out for the morning trip. We inquired about taking an afternoon trip. The nice lady at the desk said if they had enough interest there would be a 2pm trip going out that afternoon, and she would get back to me as soon as she knew. Within 20 minutes she called me back to say the trip was on..
It was an amazing trip, we saw transient Killer whales in the process of hunting something to eat. Even got to see one breach! Next we saw some huge Sea Lions, they looked like Jabba the Hut. The Dolphins came next and were so fun to watch. They jumped and played in the wake from our boat, doing flips and jumps out of the water. Just as the dolphins moved off we heard the breath of something much larger and were thrilled to find a couple of humpback whales swimming by.. Our poor tour guide forgot his camera and said that was the reason we had such a great trip.
I can't wait to go back next year for another adventure!
