From: Sointula, BC


Trip Highlights: (where we went, what we saw, etc.) Just before Alert Bay we saw a minke whale and several Pacific white-sided dolphins. The rest of the day was filled with humpbacks. We counted at least 17 individuals including Slash and her calf, Ocular, Inukshuk, Muppet and Squiggle. We were treated to a fabulous show when Slash breached at least five times! No orca, but beautiful weather and wonderful company. Additional Comments: Thank you Bill, Donna and Marieke for an amazing day!

Report by: Chanelle and Bryce

From: Adelaide, Australia


Trip Highlights: (where we went, what we saw, etc.) We spent all day over-working our smiles because we were joined on the water by the most amazing local orca, humpbacks and even a few cheeky porpoises. I cant even come up with the words to explain the feeling you get when you witness these majestic animals. Didnt know where to look! Amazing setting amongst the gorgeous green islands. Additional Comments: The crew went above and beyond to make the day a unique and unforgettable memory we can take back with us. Did I mention the subtle jokes? Thank you again for the birthday cake. Turning half of 50 isnt so bad eh?

Report by: Stuart Carter

From: England


Trip Highlights: (where we went, what we saw, etc.) 10 plus humpback, flukes and breaches. Sea lions, minke whale and 30 plus orcas!!! And dolphins. We really didnt know where to look. The trip was absolutely amazing. Spy hopping orcas; orca mother and calf; orcas riding a boat wash, orcas playing with seaweed. What more can be said!!! Additional Comments: Totally blew away any expectations. Traveled so far to find orca but the team certainly know their stuff. Positioned the boat fantastically. No rush to move out and the sitings must be unique. Oh, and lunch was great too! Many thanks.
