Had a fantastic time with Jamies tours in the Summer. We went on the whaling trip and saw so much wildlife. We saw hump back whales and grey whales. the boats go as close as possible but are always very careful about the whales safety. There is a running commentary from the captain giving local information as well as information about the wildlife. We also saw other wildlife including sea otters and sea lions. It did get a bit choppy for a land lubber like myself but the crew were fantasic and made sure that people were warm enough and as we were at open sea so that can't be helped. We also went on the bear trip which again was very good and the crew try very hard to make sure that you do see something. We saw 2 bears down by the water's edge and the crew try to give you as much information as possible. We also saw lots of bald eagles as well. Only thing is that the boat can obviously not get too close as it can be quite shallow. We had to laugh though as on the way back to Parksville we saw 2 bears by the roadside who then wandered past our car. Lady luck was clearly with us that day! So all in all a great day with sights and experiences that I may never have again.
