It has been a while since I joined Aboriginal Journeys on a boat tour circumnavigation of Quadra Island but it left a stong impression with me. Knowledgable and able captain with comfortable boat wandering about in spectacular scenery combines to make a very memorable excursion.

This nature and wildlife excursion, was an experience that i will treasure in my memory for as long as I live, and my 9 year old daughter was there to experience and enjoy the same. We were able to see a Momma Orca and her two sons just running in there natural habitat, as it was intended to be for thousands of years. Garry was not only Captain but a wonderful and witty host. Kept us on our toes as he enlightened us with his years of knowledge and experience. I would highly recommend for everyone to experience the wonder of nature under the guidance of an "Aboriginal Journeys: Wildlife Viewing and Adventure Tours". This is the only non invasive way to experience seeing these amazing, magnificent creatures! Garry I tip my hat to you with admiration and respect. Warm Regards Debbie and Victoria from Long Beach C.A

What a brilliant excursion, Garry has more information and experience than you can possibly remember! We were extremely lucky and saw seals, bears, eagles, dolphins, porpoise and the unforgettable orcas. I can not recommend this tour enough. Thank you Garry!!!!
We travelled with an 82 year old disabled passenger and was more than taken care of.

We booked the Grizzly tour with Aboriginal Journeys and had a great day viewing about 12 bears.
The tour was well organized and well executed. They even found some orca for us on the way back.
One thing my wife and I often still talk about is how good the sandwich was they supplied for lunch.
