Owner decided to give these 6 people their deposit back and not charge them... More

I want to thank you for writing this review, I have been looking forward to responding. First I wanted to say that it was unfortunate that your booking was impacted by the group of 6 that had to cancel due to a sudden family tragedy. There was no possibility to re-book later in the day or even the following day... More

Great afternoon out on the zodiac! We saw a pod of orcas, seals, bald eagles, and a grey whale. Our guide was awesome and we stayed out late to spend more time watching the grey whale which we found on our way back to Campbell River.
