Ocean Outfitters definitely delivered. We saw grey whales from a distance, but the best experience was when a grey whale was under our boat and came up right by the motor. We could have touched him. We also saw bald eagles and sea lions. What an experience. Thank you, Trevor. You were a wonderful guide.

We travelled all the way to Tofino just to go on the Ocean Outfitters trips, so our expectations were very high. We took two trips - the whale viewing and the bear viewing. They were both fabulous - everything was so professional: well-organised, very safety conscious, with guides who are so knowledgable.

Of course the wildlife is wild, and can't be relied on to appear on cue, but the guides know the area so well that they ensure you get great sightings. as well as whale and bear we also saw sea otters, seals, eagles, puffins....

And as a Brit what I also appreciated was that what you paid was what it cost - there was no one expecting a tip as well

My group enjoyed 3 days of fishing, 2 with guide Josh who was fantastic and 1 with Brody who was equally great in finding fish for us to catch. On another day we went whale watching and also visited the local hot springs which was a real treat! Ocean Outfitters is a well run business with an attention towards detail and making sure all their guests have the best experience possible.

I went to Hot Springs Cove with Ocean Outfitters on a rainy, miserable day, but it was still a great trip. In the office, everything was quick and simple, professional and friendly. On the water, Captain Travis was quite exceptional, both in his boat handling and as a tour guide.

We went with ocean outfitters twice. Once with a covered boat to watch grey whales and we got lucky - a whale came to us and nudged our boat... We saw harbour seals, sea lions lots of bold Eagles, sea birds and of course whales.
The guide was amazing he talked us through all kinds of interesting facts. We got extra gear from the company so we kept warm on this tour. Very safe and fun. The next day we went fishing but were unlucky and had nothing for 6 hours, even our guide was very surprised. The third day we went to the inland Estrada bear watching your and got lucky and saw 3 single bears in different spots and a mum with her yearling cub. There was only one other boat out as low tide was early morning at 8 and this is when the bears are foraging the shorelines for crabs and fish. We came as close at about 15m from some bears and they were completely not bothered about our presence. Again Ocean outfitters was brilliant - we hit dressed in red floating device onesies which kept us really warm (as it was an open zodiac). Thumbs up highly recommended.
