On September 02 2020 what a spectacular day we had with Captain Josh (AKA tour guide, lunch provider and of course captain of the boat ) at discovery West Adventures. He is an exceptional guide and skipper. Josh explained everything to us in detail and answered all our questions pertaining to the wild life, whales and even the ocean as it is so different from lakes and rivers. He kept in constant contact with other whale watching companies and knows where the different whales are and spent less time trying to find them. He supplied an awesome lunch in a quaint cove for a mid day break and the buildings etc were all original from many years back. We saw plenty of wild life such as seals, killer whales and humpback whales. The mountain views and scenery were just out of this world. Thank you skipper Josh for a day out we will never forget and it far exceeded all our expectations. Hope to see you next year.

We really had a great afternoon on the ocean. We saw two humpback whales, they didn’t want to stop dancing in the water, like on a catwalk. Finally a group of dolphins of maybe 25-50 animals. Many thanks to our captain Josh who answered all our questions in detail due his excellent knowledge. It was a great pleasure for us and highly recommended.

A very pleasant day with spectacular show with two humpbacks who couldn't stop entertaining us. We had to let go and see daulphins. They were breaching several time and one of them flap her tail at least 30 times.... Josh, our host was very knowledgeable and pleasant educator. We learn few things about feedings and their habits of our wonderful sea friends in our local water. We had a good time and thankful for the opportunity.

Such an amazing experience from start to finish! I've never seen whales before so I was so excited for this tour, and let me tell you it did not disappoint...we saw so many whales! Not only was the trip amazing but Chelsea and Josh were too. Chelsea answered all of my questions in detail and in a timely manor during the booking process and Josh, the skipper, was a pleasure to be around on the tour! He was so knowledgable about the area and had great stories to keep us entertained in between the whale sightings! We even were lucky enough to spot a few dolphins. I would recommend their tour to everyone!

My partner and I are so glad we contacted Discovery West Adventures on our last-minute trip to Vancouver Island. We'd never seen orcas before and Josh made it happen! Thank you guys so much for your generosity - we'll come back one day.
