“Beautiful Nature Cruise in Uke”
Reviewed April 25, 2008

My wife and I went for a day cruise on the RAINCOAST MAIDEN and had a great time.

Neither of us really go for touristy-type attractions when we travel, and being from Alaska we weren't sure if we'd be too impressed with a trip out of Uke, but we were very pleasantly surprised!

Toddy and Al (The Owners) were great and the food was top notch. The boat was a very good ride and the scenery was stunning. We got in very close to see a bunch of Sea Lions, and the whales cooperated - breaching over and over again. I don't know if they do that on cue or not, but we loved seeing them.

We were going to take the rubber boat tour, but pounding our kidneys out was a worry - those people seemed to like it, but we were quite close and had nice salmon and wine and beer, too... (Maybe I'm getting too soft as I age...) Seriously, I'm a Merchant Marine Officer and am picky on who's boat I go out on - Toddy and Al keep up their boat very well.

Anyway, the price was quite reasonable considering the service, the food, and the beauty and safety of the boat. Uke and Barkley Sound are stunning and we'll do the trip again the next time we're back.

“Want a Great wildlife viewing boat trip”
Reviewed August 1, 2007

If you want a great boat trip to see wild life, not just a quick wizz around the bay on a small whale watcher, then take a trip with Archipelago Cruises based in Uclulet. It's a 5 hour trip where the time flies bye. They try to find as much wildlife as possible & are very imformative about the area and it's history. It is aboard a 53 foot yacht which the owners also live on. They provide excellent binoculars for you to use on the trip, hot tea & coffee, and a nice level of comfort and they are also really nice people as well. We took a trip with them in July 2007 & it was one of the highlights of our holiday.
We saw humpback whales, bald eagles, seals & Stellar sea lions, only the bears were missing but they did try hard to find them for us.
