“Absolutely Amazing, Guide was fabulous, Had the time of our lives!”
Reviewed 30 May 2014 via mobile

This was a wonderful way to spend an afternoon and well worth the money. Our guide was a fabulous driver and could handle the Zodiac like a dream. One moment we were flying across the water and the next we were quietly watching a majestic whale. Highly recommend this adventure with this wonderful company. Jack and staff are extremely knowledgeable and friendly, wish we could do it again very soon.

“Great time”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

Booked this trip before we left the UK so wasn't sure what we were going to get but I had read the reviews and they were very positive. WOW!!!!! Did we every have a good trip despite the fact that we were the only two people on this trip it still went ahead, unlike many other companies who said they needed a certain amount of people to run.
We left the dock and headed out for the next 5 hours in search of whales (Orca) unfortunately they had not been seen that day but we saw some stunning scenery, that can only be seen on the water. Then the wildlife started to appear we lost count of how many bald eagles we saw, close up, and then we saw seal on the log rafts, after which we saw a brown bear feeding on the vegetation at the waters edge and finally we saw a pod of dolphins feeding. The whole experience was really great and we could not have been in better or more friendly hands. Our thanks go out to those who made us feel special in every way. It's a must if your in the area it's a must do.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed 1 February 2014

While visiting my wifes niece and her husband in Victoria B.C., we went on a 5 day RV excursion. One of our stops was in Campbell River and we booked a whale watching trip here. The trip was awesome. We went on the bigger boat instead of the zodiak since my wife and I are in our 50s' and it had a bathroom, (head). The scenery itself was worth the cost of the trip. We were out for almost 6 hours which included a lunch of fresh deli style sandwiches, fresh fruit and pastries. Our captain was very personable and seemed to enjoy the trip as much as his passengers! The various tour groups all work with each other to ensure that everyone gets to see the whales. While we were trying to find a Pod, we came across about 150 dolphins in a cove. All of the different groups are very respecful of the wildlife and stayed back a respectful distance, but that didn't stop the dolphins from checking us out. It was a truly amazing experience. We also found a Pod of Orcas and stayed with them for an hour or so. I would highly recommend an excursion with this group!
