Your site looks awesome.
I am very interested in the full day tour but have a few questions.
(1) I take it you have toilets, what are they like (do you have a photo of perhaps a reference that I could google). I get the feeling if I do a full day tour I am going to need to use it :-)
(2) Can I ask what is the real benefit of the 8 hours, would I not be better off just booking 2 separate days (I have the time). Perhaps that will be easier?
(3) Are you on the boat for a full 8 hours, it seems like a long time to be sitting on a zodiac boat? Do you come ashore at any point or is there a way to stretch the legs?
Many thanks, as I say, it looks awesome on your website.
Thanks for the inquiry!
All of our vessels that we use for our Full Day Tours have a small onboard washroom. If you email us from our website we would be happy to email you and image of the onboard washroom.
The benefit of the full day tour is it gives you more time on the water to spend with all the whales and wildlife of the Salish Sea. It enables us to travel to areas that other whale watching vessels don't go as we are looking for those intimate encounters with. Also often we have more than one group of whales within our range so the full day tour enables us to have multiple encounters with different groups of whales when possible. The full days also give us the opportunity to choose our scheduling time with the whales to ensure there are fewer boats viewing the whales while we are on scene with the whales and avoid the peak times when it gets busy with other boats viewing.
We suggest planning on being on our boat for the full eight hours, the time goes quite quickly. There are some days when we do stop on a Canadian Gulf Island to stretch our legs etc but this is dictated by the whales locations and travel patterns as the whales we view can travel up to 100 miles in a 24 hour period.
I hope this helps and feel free to email or call us if you have any further questions.
