    The views of the coast were so beautiful and our guides made this experience so wonderful. Michael, Sophia, and Theo each took time with us to point out the breaches and made sure our group got the most of its trip. We saw a pack of Orcas, Sea lions and more!!

    We had a great trip out on the covered boat to search for whales. The staff were friendly and well organised. And we managed to see a humped back whale. A wonderful experience.

    Memorable experience.
    Lori went out of her way to give us a whale experience. Loved it. Authentic and respectfully done. Majestic site. Always allow a couple of days to get best conditions.

    I would wholeheartedly recommend this company. They have such an amazing team and parts of the fee goes to preserving wildlife and educating in schools... !. We had a wonderful trip, with every wildlife encounter we got so much fun information.
    Highly recommended!

    Friend and I went on the 3 hour zodiac tour with the hopes of seeing an Orca. We saw 7 transient and on our way back we passed by the whole resident J pod. My friend asked if it was possible to see an otter and our guide Mark went out of his way to introduce us to Ollie! We also saw a stellar sea lion and harbour seals. We had an amazing time, Mark is very knowledgeable and was to identify each and every Orca. I would highly recommend this tour.

    Great tour with James and Sam! We got to see many humpback whales despite it being late in the season. They shared lots of information with us about the species we were seeing and the history of whales in BC.

    Such an amazing evening out on the water. Weather was great and we were lucky enough to be in quite a small group on the boat.

    We sped out to the Whale Rocks at the southern end of Lopez Island. Treated to an hour with a pod of 6 Orcas who kept surfacing. Saw a great mix of older/younger whales. We then were able to sea a group of Sea Lions who were also in the area.

    The crew made it a fantastic evening. Mads & Reid were so knowledgeable and able to answer every question that was thrown their way. They made it super engaging. Thank you!

    Also a big thank you to Richard & Gord at the bridge who were able to ensure we got great views of all the wildlife and scenery.

    Absolutely amazing. We saw close to 2 dozen Orcas today. There was cute 1 year old calf. Finished the day off with sea lions and seals. Staff are amazing as well. 10/10

    This was a highlight of our family trip to the island! We had 2 children with us, 10 and 13, they loved it! Having the indoor part was great to escape the wind for a bit. Megan and Tilly were absolutely fantastic! They gave us all lots of information and had a great sense of humor. Megan especially was lovely, she let our youngest talk her ear off and ask all the questions!! Our daughter loved her.
    A great perk was they give us access to photos they took during our tour, which allows us to just sit and enjoy. The pics we did take were a bit far away anyways!
    We managed to see a killer whale pod which was amazing!

    The company was top notch from the get go. They were very professional, kind, safe, and welcoming. The one guide (Jim?) was excellent and incredibly knowledgeable. I was a bit blown away by the amount of information he was able to give us. The captain (Jo?) was also wonderful. They had heard about another sighting near the end of our planned trip and went around the whole boat to ask if anyone had any appointments and to see if it would be ok to take a bit of extra time so we could all check out a new animal sighting. Obviously, that's a big yes from most unless you've got a plane to catch! While I know we can't predict nature, we DID get several really cool whale sightings, we got to see some lunge feeding of a humpback and some neat behaviour from a family of transient orca. Obviously, Race Rocks meant an excellent view of the sea lions (and a nose full too, blech!). All in all, an incredible trip with a great company!
