We headed off for a whale-watching tour with Subtidal this morning, and were fortunate to be greeted with a clear and sunny day. The inflatable Zodiac was full with a complement of 12 passengers, in addition to captain Bob and, because it's Whale Festival time here, Marine Biologist Wendy was on this trip - an added bonus. Excellent gear was provided to help keep you warm, dry and safe. I neglected to take gloves but Captain Bob had a number of pairs for borrowing.
We encountered sealions of both the California and Stellar variety, a host of eagles (it looked like a convention on a rock at one point), Gray whales, seals and a lone otter. Bob took us over quite a large territory and the information provided by Wendy was great to have. Tour was supposd to be 2 hours but ended up being 2-1/2 - another bonus.
Would certainly recommend this outfit, their staff was knowledgeable, entertaining and helpful, the watercraft safe and clean, and the trip was marvellous.
A tip - don't spend too much time looking through a camera viewfinder when the boat is in rougher seas, it'll turn you green faster than a bad piece of meat.
