we had a great time and saw a pod of transient whales really close up. It was awesome. The other really nice thing was the boat is very enclosed, so you stay pretty warm on the water but can either go out on the deck...More

Very nice day for our cruise to Gibsons and Bowen Island. Found the boat needed a bit of work. Couldn't see out of the windows and no bathroom on board. Apparently there are major renovations being planned. This should make the boat much more comfortable....More
