Our family of 5 had the pleasure of 3 enjoyable and informative hours with Alexander as he took us hiking through beaches and forests. He is so knowledgeable and observant. Terrific to deal with in every aspect.

I booked and paid for a tour to view black bears salmon-fishing, scheduled for mid-November 2016. I was to meet the tour guide in Ucluelet. However, while driving to Ucluelet from Tofino to meet the tour guide I received a phone call from the guide to advise that the tour had been cancelled. The reason given was that access to... More

We value your feedback, be it positive or negative; as it allows us to continuously improve the experience offered. Unfortunately access... More

We did two three hour tours with Silva who was an absolutely wonderful guide, delightful and extremely knowledgeable. In the morning we did the "Wild Pacific Trail" which provided lots of variety. Even though it was November the sun was peeking through which only added to the positive experience. Silva answered all our questions and some. She produced maps and... More

My husband, our 12-year-old daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our nature tour of Florencia Bay via the Willowbrae Trail. Silva was our guide and I was very impressed with how she engaged my daughter in observations. We never would have gotten so much out of the hike on our own, and we've acquired a new appreciation for tide pools. We... More
