We had incredible views of magnificent humpback whales and also learned about them too. I loved how respectful of the animals the guide was. Lovely boat ride, got to see more of the incredible beauty in Ucluelet. Would absolutely go again!

We went to see the bears with a very professional crew (Chris and Greg if I remember well) who know the right places and everything about bears. We also saw seals and bald eagles. I recommend this trip without any hesitation.
