Report by: Kyle & Connie Cassidy

From: Victoria, BC


Trip Highlights: (where we went, what we saw, etc.) We went to the northern tip of the Island. On the way, we saw 3 humpback whales, including a mother and calf. Then we saw a pod of orcas (Residents A24), sea lions, and after lunch, we saw more resident orcas. When we saw the humpback whales they were showing their tails and breaching. Also saw several Dalls porpoises that came alongside the boat. Additional Comments: Excellent trip; the boat is very comfortable, and the staff knowledgeable and helpful. Great value for the tour, and we appreciated how nice everyone treated us. If were ever back up this way, this will be a tour we would do again.
