We are a family of four including three year old twins from Alberta. We wanted to get out on the water the water, learn a bit about the area and see some wildlife. The whale watching tours are too lon, expensive and not well suited to young kids. EcoCruising was the perfect option for us.
We ended up being the only people on a 1.5 hour tour with Brian from EcoCruising. The weather looked not great for the day but turned out great as even though it was overcast and looked like it might rain it was very calm making for a pleasant boat ride. Also, even though it rained for a short period of time the boat is fully enclosed like a solarium and we were totally warm and dry. The set up of the boat was also great as the kids could move around a bit.
Brian really tailored the tour to be interesting to the kids which was great we also saw a bald eagle and nest, seals, star fish and little beach crabs.
We took the tour from the canoe cove location but I think they also offer tours out of brentwood bay. Canoe cove was only about a ten minute drive from Sidney. Contact number to book tour was 250 655 5211.
