My husband and I wanted to celebrate our anniversary by doing something different and exciting, springtide did not disappoint! We arrived at the office and promptly signed in, the receptionist was very helpful and kind. Our captain, Greg, was awesome! He was so funny and engaging. We made our way out and found a large pod of orcas, Greg brought us in nice and close and gave us some background on the different kinds of orcas we saw. Thank you Springtide for the wonderful experience, we will definitely do it again!

Dear Melissa T,

Thanks so much for your lovely review!

By the sounds of it, you had a fantastic adventure filled anniversary! We are delighted that we got to be a part of your special day. It’s awesome to hear that you had such a great time on your Zodiac tour and that you found our staff both in the office and on the water to be kind and personable.

Thanks again for joining us, we would love to have you back again!

Sincerely,
Chloe Howarth

After donning us in safety suits that made us look like space men, we took to our zodiac. It was not long before we really appreciated these suits as even though it was a lovely day, it was quite fresh as we rode the waves out to sea, and we were dry and warm. And we were truly rewarded for the distance we travelled as we saw a pod of orca whales. It was brilliant to see these animals as they leapt out of the water and even though we were a good distance away we could still hear the thud as they hit the water. Thanks to our guide Greg for making our experience of whale watching so enjoyable.

Organized and fun zodiac tour! We saw lots of sea life including resident killer whales, sea otters and sea lions. Captain Ian was great and very knowledgable. Highly recommend this company.

We saw many orcas, but had to go all over and cross the border to US to see them. Overall very nice. Our guide Charlie was very knowledgable and pleasant to talk to.

Awesome day. Greg was our guide. Very professional. Advised us of the rough conditions on the ocean, and also stressed people with back or neck problems should re-think about going out.
Saw at least 5 whales who come very close to the zodiac.Great day and highly recommend. Thanks for a great 3 hours Greg. Keep up the good work. Jill from Australia

Dear Jillmonti,

Thank you so much for taking the time to review SpringTide Whale Watching and Greg. We appreciate your kind comments and I know Greg does too. He is a great guide and we are lucky to have him as part of the crew.

The Zodiacs are a lot of fun but they are definitely not recommended for guests with chronic neck or back problems. All of the crew take our passengers safety and comfort seriously so it is no surprise to hear Greg checking up on his guests before and throughout the tour.

Thanks for joining us and we look forward to having you possibly join us again someday :)

Sincerely,
Fiona Fogarty
Guest Services Manager
