Beautiful boat, great tour and scenery- saw orca, eagles, seals, sea lions, otter. The hosts were really great, accomodating to all on board. They went out of their way to make sure all were ok, especially when the sea was a little rough. Would recommend.

Al and toddy present a world class whale watching experience. They are organized, take their time viewing and explaining the wildlife and have a very comfortable boat.

Hello, We are now closed until early May. However there are other companies which stay open all year. They will run in November, weather permitting. You could try either Subtidal Adventures or Beachcomber Ocean Tours.
We will travelling with a baby age 8 months at the time we would like to do the tour. Is it possible to take the baby on the Tour and do we have to pay the full amount of the 125$ for her too?

We see puffins the very odd time - when we do it is usually in the spring - but overall VERY seldom. It is best to assume we won't see any. There are always lots of other bird species to see though!
