The most professional and informative our in the region. They take the time to know the animals, and respect the space to keep everyone safe and in compliance. Great opportunity to see whales in their own environment. Tons of great information about the area.

We had this tour included as part of a cruise package from Vancouver and decided to pre-book the shuttle service from our Hotel. Service was excellent from confirming the initial booking and our pick up point, through to the final drop off back in Vancouver....More

We were lucky to spot pod of whales, watching them live was amazing. It's not what you see on national geography it's an experience to remember. The information given and enthusiasm shown by the people who took us for riding were very informative. Recommend highly.
