Our trip was amazing. We saw two pods, each with 4 whales (one included a baby). We spent a total of about 5 hours on the water. The scenery and weather were beautiful, which made for an amazing day.

Thank you for sharing your experience with our company! Although we offer primarily a whale watching trip, our company strives to treat our guests to all the various wildlife and scenery the west coast has to offer!

I can really recommend this. Saw many killer whales, an Humpback whale and Sea lions. The guide was informative and the boat trip was good. Thought that I should see one or two whales but I got to see much more.

Well worth the trip, we saw orcas and a humpback all in one day. The staff we're extremely informative and very passionate about preserving wildlife. They explained some much about the whales.

We booked the Express boat which worked well for us. We went in July and the boat was open air - not sure when you will be going, but they may have to put tops on them. I had no problems with my camera equipment on the... More

We had wonderful weather when we went on Sept 24th. Just dress in layers. We were provided with a life suit which will keep you dry. I wouldn't imagine the whales are affected by the rain. Book it and enjoy!
