We spent the day whale watching with our niece and her family. It was by far the best trip we have had in over twenty years of whale watching on this coast. Our skipper, Josh, was attentive, knowledgeable, courteous, and had a great sense of humor; the lunch he prepared was excellent as well. We highly recommend Discovery West Adventures if you want a great day on the water.

Thank you so much for your great review Hank. Josh will be happy to hear you enjoyed his lunch, and his sense of humor (he thinks he is pretty funny too ;) ) We are fortunate enough to have such beautiful wildlife and scenery, and we're so happy we were able to share it with you. We hope you'll come back again! Cheers :)

This was a private trip for my husband and me so when the skipper asked what we wanted to see we were able to be very clear - Orcas! (We had seen humpback whales the previous week, including one breaching, but no orcas. He delivered in spades with several pods and we experienced a great pod of dolphins swimming alongside the boat as well. Great sandwich lunch.

Words seem inadequate to express our great and genuine appreciation for the awesome adventure Josh provided us. He’s so very knowledgable, interesting and sensed exactly what we wanted. He patiently and accurately answered ever question I had !! I apologized to friends for posting so many photos, but our involvement was wonderfully unique on his boat, plus on the walk and climb to the top of Ripple Rock Hike Lookout !! Though we vacationed in the area many times, exploring/experiencing this was a long time bucket list item for me.

This was one of the best experiences of my life. Hands down. Before we even boarded the boat we saw harbour seals, we saw a black bear within ten minutes, we saw sealions, Dall’s porpoise jumping in our wake. We saw orca, and while we were wstching the orca a humpback whale appeared. We had an incredible lunch on Stuart Island and were treated to a humpback in the bay. More orca, dolphins…it was a thrill a minute. Josh was so knowledgeable, the landscape and scenery was stunning. Memories of this day will stay with me for the rest of my life. Thank you so much is all I can say.

we booked the sunset tour. it was a very small boat in a small group which i found very pleasant. the skipper was very nice and tried hard throughout the tour to see a whale. unfortunately we weren't lucky this time - that's nature and it makes things more exciting. instead, the skipper told us a lot about wrecks lying on the bottom and led us to the whirlpools, which was very interesting. the good weather and the sunset rounded it all off - a very successful tour.

The Eagle Discovery tour was absolutely spectacular. Josh was an excellent guide who had great expertise of the local area and the confident patience we needed to be in the right place at the right time. The experience was so incredible, I booked another trip in a couple weeks.

Josh went above and beyond to give us a fantastic experience. We saw 4 whales but quality not quantity was important - so lucky to see a whale bubble feeding whilst we were also keeping a respectful distance. We loved the small group size and the laid back approach which made us feel less like tourists and more like people sharing a once in a life time (for us) experience.

We had an amazing experience with Discovery West. Josh and Chelsea were great hosts, very passionate, knowledgeable and just fun to be with! We saw orcas, humpbacks and harbour seals on our Sunset Tour. Next time we will go for the full day whale watching tour! Absolutely recommend!

Josh is the consummate professional…beyond that one of the really good guys. His knowledge and skill is second to none. From the moment you boat his boat until the second you leave it’s like being with family (the ones you really like)….absolutely a first rate experience.
