Wow. Best, most personable cruise/tour I've ever been on. If you're looking for something memorable it's worth the little extra to upgrade to this excellent experience, and let Alan and Toddy be your hosts for the day.

I see why TripAdvisor has them ranked as the #3 Wildlife Sightseeing Tour in the WORLD. This is what I will compare everything to from this point forward. A perfect score.

Al and Toddy were really terrific and they shared so much knowledge about ucluelet and about the wildlife . They really make you feel welcome and you know that they really love what they do. Along the way we saw Bald Eagles and many Grey Whales as well as seals and sealions. The cruise time was over five hours and we had lunch on the boat as well. Everything you need for the day is supplied and we had a really good time and would like to take this tour again.

Went with my family, 6 of us, and we all loved it! What a georgious day, with lots wildlife and plenty of whales, and close too! The hosts Al and Toddy were top notch, made everyone feel right at home! The salmon lunch was amazing with a glass of white wine, while anchored out in the Broken Islands! Just perfect! =)

Totally worth the cost to spend 5-6 hours aboard the very comfortable boat being shown the scenery and wildlife by highly experienced guides! We saw bear, bald eagles (many times) seals, sea lions, gray whales (many times including once having 6 whales rising around us at the same time!). The hosts are both highly experienced and knowledgeable and totally welcoming/attentive to passenger needs. The boat is very comfortable, with open air and shaded spaces to watch from, easy to move around, and fully equipped. The gourmet lunch option was lovely - good food and fun to sit aboard at anchor continuing to see the sights and sounds of the Broken Island group. We had made the trip across Vancouver Island because of the wildlife cruise and it was absolutely worth it! Cannot recommend it more highly if you like being on the water and seeing animals in their natural habitat.

Al and Toddy were warm and friendly hosts. This was the best day of our trip. Their boat was so comfortable, they served us a delicious lunch and I got some excellent photos. I couldn't be happier. I hope we can take this tour again.
