“Baby Seal”
Review of EcoCruising

EcoCruising
Ranked #3 of 4 Tours in Sidney
Attraction details
Reviewed 8 August 2013

The tours with Brian Smiley are informative and he'll do his best to make sure you have a chance to see the wildlife in the area. July and August are great for seeing the newly hatched seagull & cormorant chicks and August is when the Harbour seal pups are born. The area is home to migrating summer and winter bird life, so always changing. As a Piers Island resident, we are on the boats often and every trip is like a tour. A great idea when you have out of town guests as the boats can take up to 12 on a private tour.

Reviewed 2 June 2013

In May 2013 I went out on 2 ecocruises with this Sidney, BC company. I was pleasantly surprised at how easily Brian Smiley accomodated my walker onboard the very comfortable boats. Completely enclosed by a glass wraparound, these cushioned bench boats are very luxurious! It rained a bit, but we didn't care; we were warm and comfy and could still see all of the amazing wildlife and geological features pointed out by ex-biologist Brian Smiley. I learned very much about bull kelp and seals and First Nations' historical use of these areas. We saw eagles, seals, starfish and many other creatures on our leisurely cruises around Saanich Inlet and off of Sidney.
