“So great - we went twice!”
Reviewed 31 July 2014 via mobile

We did an 8 hour whale watch tour last Thursday and enjoyed it so much we decided to do it again today.
We had an excellent tour guide Leif, who went out of his way to ensure we had an incredible trip! Highly recommend a tour with him as he was very experienced with the boat and had a wealth of knowledge about the wildlife as well as the history of the area.
On the second tour he kindly extended our trip & took us out 2.5 hours to ensure we had the best opportunity to see Orcas. It was well worth it as we saw at least 10 Orcas & spent quality time with them. Leif was also able to show us a black bear on the beach, dolphins, sea lions & a humpback. The team have built great relationships with other boats and share sightings to allow optimal viewing for those on the tour.
The lunch provided is also delicious.
We had a great time thanks to Leif.

“Still talking about it!”
Reviewed 29 July 2014

Went on a two-day trip to Campbell River and loved it! It is difficult to find a new adventure when our son lives in Whistler but we definitely did. On our 4-hour trip we were entertained by bald eagles, dolphins, harbour seals, one sea lion, and the very best was saved for last.....our thrill rides through the deep rapids. Thanks for a fab time!

“Well worth it!”
Reviewed 24 July 2014 via mobile

We spent a great 6 hours with our excellent guide Jen. We used the covered vessel, which was good as it was quite cool outside. 6 hours sounds a long time but the hours flew by. We were treated to numerous viewings of whales, bald eagles etc. Jen certainly knows her stuff and takes time to make her guests feel very welcome. We would not have missed this trip. Thanks to birthday girl Jen for a wonderful and interesting day on the boat.

“Hundreds of Bald Eagles”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

On July 11th, 2014 I went on a 4 hour white water raft excursion with my 2 teenage sons. It was spectacular! The boys said it was the best thing we had ever done on vacation. I will remember the hundreds of bald eagles swooping down to capture fish, most. Please let Aaron know how much we enjoyed ourselves!

“Wonderful Experience!!”
Reviewed 30 June 2014 via mobile

Great tour and a beautiful day. We were a little early in the whale watching season but still saw some amazing things. Several bears, many harbor seals and dozens upon dozens of bald and golden eagles catching fish. With lunch supplied, they kept us out for about five hours. Fantastic guide, great adventure!!!!
