We encountered so many whales; we were lucky. Two orcas came right up alongside the boat and then swam under it. It was amazing.

Hey Lorna, So glad to hear that you had a good trip! We always aim to stay 200 meters away from orca, but every now and then they have their own idea of where they want to be, and suprise us! Thank you for joining us and taking the time to share your review!

Ethan was an excellent driver, knowledgable about the wildlife and respectful. He knew how to handle the rapids and also drove at a speed where the dolphins came to play in the wake of the boat. I felt I was in a David Attenborough show! 6 hour tour was great as it gives you enough time to get that extra distance. We were so fortunate to see whales, bears, dolphins eagle feeding area. Thank you for a fantastic day in beautiful BC.

I grew up here in Campbell River and have spent a lot of time on the water over the years. But I have never gone whale watching and this trip did not disappoint. We did a 4hr whale watching/ wildlife tour and had Quinn as our guide and found him very friendly and extremely knowledgeable. We saw Humpbacks, Orcas, Sea Lions, Eagles and more. Can't wait to go again!!

So glad you had a good trip! It's amazing how much we take for granted / miss out on in our own home town isn't it. Thank you for joining us, and taking the time to write a review. Hope to see you again!
