Owner description: Come and join us for the most spectacular Whale Watching, Grizzly Bear Expedition and Wildlife Tours in your life! From April 1st until mid-October, Eagle Eye Adventures Tours offers Whale Watching, Ocean rapids/Wildlife tours and of course our magnificent Grizzly Bear Expeditions. Your adventure starts at Campbell River’s Discovery Harbour Marina. Come and explore the beautiful central coast of British Columbia – one of the best places in the world to observe whales, grizzly bears, and other wildlife. Eagle Eye Adventures Tours have been named as one of the top 2 best things to do in Canada by European travel agencies. Our tours are a terrific base for photography and viewing diverse wildlife. With a maximum of 12 guests on each tour, we can personalize your wilderness adventure, and help you put those animals on your life list. From right in Campbell River, you can hop onto one of our boats and head out on the waters of Johnstone Strait, and Desolation Sound, off the Discovery Islands, and sometimes even the Sunshine Coast to watch a pod of Orcas or to witness a Humpback Whale breaching the surface. Porpoises and Dolphins can often be seen playing in the wake of our boats. What we love about the wilderness here is that it is still wild! Our straights and open waterways are what we’re famous for. The unique currents caused by ebbing and flooding tides support a food chain that starts with phytoplankton up through herring, salmon, dolphins, seals, orcas and humpback whales. On land, you can find cinnamon, black, and grizzly bears, deer, elk, cougar, wolves, and of course eagles, watching you as you watch them. Not only can we show you these magnificent creatures, but we can also give you a better understanding of the complex ecosystem which supports these animals. We work closely with other tour companies and scientists to protect our environment and are candidates to be named a World Whale Heritage Site. We are doing everything we can to preserve our whales for the future. The best way to see Grizzly Bears in their natural habitat is to join us on our covered boat and ride in comfort to Bute Inlet and the mouth of the Orford River. This is home to a significant concentration of coastal grizzlies. During the late summer and early autumn, bears are drawn to the many salmon spawning streams feeding into the coastal inlets. While the local bear population reaches its peak in the autumn, during the spring and summer bears feed on sedges, succulents, and grasses that make up the river estuary. These ongoing sources of high-quality food are why coastal grizzlies and brown bears are larger than inland bears. Don’t miss this unforgettable opportunity to witness the wildlife of Vancouver Island along some of the most majestic coastlines in the world!

One of the most memorable 8 hours of my life. Our guide / boat driver, Nick, was not only incredibly knowledgable about the area, but had a real knack for finding wildlife whereever we went. Orca barely a minute out of the harbour! Eagles, Seals, Bears and even more Orca! Matched with the natural beauty of West Coast BC and I have photo collection that is the envy of my friends! Cannot wait to do it again in 2012!

An experience you will never forget happens with Eagle Eye Adventures... There are many companies that can create this kind of experience on earth, but in Campbell River, BC, Eagle Eye Adv. is the one I highly recommend going with. Lets start with the office - excellent customer service; friendly, knowledgeable and helpful staff which is essential to me for a company I support has. Captain Nick Templeman was awesome! He covered many miles (kilometers) to make sure we saw Orcas. On our way to see them, he took us through some interesting rapids, saw Bald Eagles, Dolphins and looked for bears. It was a little early in the season for bears, but he still tried. We spent a considerable time with the Orcas, and he was respectful of them following the guidelines for watching wildlife in their natural habitat. His knowledge of the wildlife and the area was beyond of what all you would ever want or need to know. It shows that he thoroughly enjoys his job, has a loving heart for wildlife and other nature that he cross paths with daily.
