Dear Anne, how privileged we are to have had you return to visit us a second time around! You are so right in that nature is changeable, yes, and the whales aren't always in our area. Gratefully they are still so wild in that way!...More

Great three day trip. Brenda, Jordan and Sinead took good care of us. The sleeping tents and food were more towards glam ping then camping. Lastly we were very lucky and saw Orcas, humpbacks dolphins and a bear. Recommend trip to all levels of kayakers.More

We stayed four days in the Orca Camp. The weather was perfect and both Jordan and Ken are skilled guides. However, we think the advertisement and pre-trip mail correspondence with the company gave a falls impression on the condition for whale-spotting. We were under the...More
