Fantastic experience. Mike knows the waters and where to go to see Humpback Whales, Orca, Sea Lions, Porpoise and Sea Otters. He also understands the environment and history of the area. We had a very special full day travelling between the islands seeing and understanding so much more. Highly recommended!

I was fortunate to go on th 6 hour day trip recently. Everything was top notch. The crew, (Thomas and Andrew) were very knowledgeable of the wildlife and the surrounding area. The meal provided was more than I expected and delicious. We were able to see Humpbacks, Sea lions, Sea Otters, Eagles and many types of water fowl. The boat itself was in great shape and very clean and lots of fun to travel in I highly recommend this trip.

What an amazing day on the water. We were guided on our trip by William who was excellent throughout, full of information and facts, knew all the best places to go and how to get close to the wildlife whilst fully respecting their space. We also enjoyed a lovely picnic lunch on one of the Islands. Within minutes of leaving Port Hardy we encountered our first sea otters, and this was followed with six or seven Humpback sightings, an entire nursery of Sea otter mums with their babies, over forty Bald Eagles feeding on a fish ball, several black bears, porpoise, seals and sea lions aplenty. The weather was great and this part of the world in northern Vancouver Island is just stunning. We would happily spend all day on the water. Thanks William and the team.

Probably one of the best boat tours we’ve done. The crew were great, knew their wildlife and area superbly. We saw Grey and Minki whales plus porpoise and many sea otters. Of great interest was visiting native ancestoral sites and again the guides gave us great insights into this great cultural experience. Mike and Thomas, what a great crew.

The boat is quick yet keeps you dry. The jacket and trousers keep you warm. William (skipper) is so knowledgeable, humble and experienced. -would recommend to everyone and anyone! A great company with a respect for nature.
