I have returned to write this review based on our trip in 2011 because I have just re-booked for the coming June. We booked the 6 hour tour including lunch and our guide was extremely knowledgeable and clearly an accomplished seaman too boot!

We saw a pod of orcas hunt and celebrate, black bears on the shore digging for crabs and little fish under rocks, seals and sea lions. Saw more... More

I booked a day trip with Campbell River Whale Watching in september. It was amazing! So many orcas, some humpbacks and beautiful surroundings. I came to Canada especially to see the orcas and this company did not disappoint. The orcas were spyhopping all the time and at some point they were swimming under our boat. It was such a great...

I just wanted to let you know about this company of dedicated naturalists. I have been on both the wildlife and rapids tours. Both were thrilling. The wildlife tour surpassed my expectations because we saw orcas, fed eagles, dolphins and many other birds. Our guide was able to discuss the wildlife and their habitats.
