Lighthouse, Totems & Eagles Excursions Day Tours

Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: 2-3 hours
Owner description: Lighthouse, Totems, and Eagles Excursion is a 3-hour expedition (dock-to-dock). Our dock representative or van driver greets the passengers as they get off of their ship and guides them to their transportation. After a short, narrated bus or van ride out to our rustic Ward Cove location, guests board one of our 45 passenger vessels (either the M/V Totem Princess or the M/V Lighthouse Endeavor) to embark on an interactive, educational, and entertaining voyage to Guard Island Lighthouse and back. Notable locations along the tour route include the historic site of the Ward Cove Pulp Mill, Ward Cove Packing Company, Refuge Cove and its outlying islands, Totem Bight State Park, Guard Island Lighthouse, and Vallenar Rocks Wildlife Viewing area. Our primary wildlife viewing is eagles and their nests, but sightings also include seals, sea lions, blue heron and other seabirds, and even humpback and orca whales. We follow a circuitous route, which ensures there is no redundancy in scenery.

This tour would not have been bad if tha system was broken. Captain Rob goes on and on. Although some of the things that he has to say are mildly interesting the rest is him gossiping about his neighbors, making not so funny political jabs.... Taking about the passages as if we from the lower have no clue... Oh are then there are the really uncomfortable talks about his bowels and sex. We could not wait to get off the boat. Don't waste your money to be stuck on a ship with this guy.

The good news is that we have eliminated offensive jokes about high fiber diets and such and have only kept the jokes that most people find humorous. We do have an informational two hours on the water and most people love it. It's informational, lively and entertaining. We do tend to segue from topic to topic with a little light-heartedness or a politically incorrect comment or two. We certainly don't hope to offend any person or group. We choose ALL subjects that relate to the real history, geology, architecture, culture, characters, coast-line, wildlife and personal experience of having lived most of our lives in the area we talk about.

As far as choosing another tour.......... certainly there are others to choose from but we feel that we offer the absolute BEST tour for the money, a VERY GOOD VALUE. That is our goal, that we strive to achieve each and every time our crew leaves the dock.

Kindy,
Capt. Rob

Captain was entertaining. Crew were friendly and helpful. It was a pleasant change that they provided free hot chocolate and snacks. Boat is a bit challenging for elderly.

Thank Denise H
