Trip Highlights: (where we went, what we saw, etc.) WOW! I had such a great time! We went up by Robson Bight (almost) and saw tons of orcas for at least 1-2 hours. Bill records the sounds the whales make underwater. They make beautiful sounds. We saw sea lions and the blow spouts of humpback whales. Additional Comments: Good lunch and great information about the whales from the hosts Bill and Marieke. Beautiful day with the whales!

Report by: Christy Whitmore

From: Port Hardy, BC


Trip Highlights: (where we went, what we saw, etc.) We started out our trip in the beautiful North Island mist and flat calm waters. Saw I15, I27 and A30 pods of killer whales. They put on a great show breaching and frolicking in the morning waters. Then off to see sea lions, then on to the majestic humpbacks; 5 of them including Squiggles and Argonaut. To finish it all off, we saw I4s around Stubbs Island. Additional Comments: Lots of fun with Bill and Marieke as ou hosts. The best in the North Island!

Report by: Leslie Brown

From: Victoria, BC


Trip Highlights: (where we went, what we saw, etc.) We started out in heavy fog but managed to see lots of sea lions lounging and bellowing on a rock. The fog did lift after an hour or so and we had the best scenery in the world to look at. Orcas at Robson Bight. Fantastic lunch while listening to their calls underwater. Porpoises, dolphins, eagles and humpbacks  lots. Additional Comments: Captain and crew were friendly, funny and fully of great information about everything. One of the best holiday decisions I ever made.
