Discovery Island Cleanup Adventure

Adventures That Matter!

Join us for a fun day of sightseeing, exploring both on and off of the water! We’ll be heading into the Discovery Islands and scouting out beaches that need our help!

The trip will leave from Brown’s Bay, and stop for any whales or wildlife along the way. Once we pick a beach, we’ll go ashore and make a game plan of where to start. We’ll work together in teams, as we help to keep BC beautiful! We’ll take a break for a nice BBQ lunch on the beach, and afterwards guests can feel free to do so some exploring, or take a swim and cool off!

When everyone has had enough fun, we’ll pack up our garbage, and start making our way back home. Guests can expect the trip to last 6-7 hours, depending on how much garbage we find, and what kind of wildlife we encounter on our journey!

FAQ

The beauty of mother nature is that you never know what she has in store for you! We’ve had tours where we’ve spent the entire trip watching humpbacks launch themselves out of the water, or had pods of Pacific White-Sided Dolphins play in our wake. Orca often make appearances as well 🙂

We focus not just on whales, but on all of the beautiful wildlife and scenery our coast has to offer.

Check out what kind of local wildlife you might encounter here 

It depends what you really want to see, and how much time you’d like to spend on the water. We have wildlife and beautiful scenery on all of our tours, but our most popular tours are our 6 Hour Whale Watching Tour and our 4 Hour Coastal Adventure

During our 6 Hour trip, we have the opportunity to travel a bit further and spend more time with the whales. We also take a nice break for a homemade lunch, where guests will have a chance to get off the boat and stretch their legs, and use the bathroom if necessary.

If you’re looking for something a bit shorter, the 4 Hour Coastal Adventure, is essentially is just a shorter version of the above, lunch is not included in this one. We often see whales during our 4 hour tours, but we are a bit more limited with the time spent with them.

If you have young kids, we suggest doing the 4 Hour Coastal Adventure, 3 Hour Sunset or even our 1 hour Seymour Narrows Trip.

  • Please keep in mind we are on a boat and things might get wet!
  • Your Sense Of Adventure!

No two tours are the same! At the beginning of the tour, we always ask what our guests would like to see! Depending on what has been spotted already, weather conditions and general vibe of the group, we will make a game plan of where to go.

Typically our longer trips will involve going into Desolation Sound, or further north (depending on weather). Our shorter trips will explore around Quadra Island and Discovery Passage.

Your journey takes place on our 30′ custom built aluminum vessel.  The boat features bench style seating down each side of the boat, along with a double bench up front. This leaves ample deck space to get up and move around/take pictures when the boat is stopped.

The vessel is partially covered which allows guests to get out of the sun/rain if necessary.

We do not have a washroom on board, so we encourage our guests to use the washroom at the marina before departing. For our longer tours, we will make a land based stop for lunch where guests can use the washroom facilities. Rest assured, that in an emergency, we will always find a way to accommodate you!

Though sometimes we encounter rougher water heading out/coming in, most of our routes are fairly well protected and quite calm! 

If you know you are prone to seasickness, we recommend taking some anti-nausea medication as a precaution before we leave the dock.

For the enjoyment of everyone on the trip, we suggest a minimum age of 5 for our longer 6 hour trips. Kids under 5 can join us on our 2 hour Sunset Trip, or Coastal Adventure. If you are doing a private tour, we have no minimum age limit.

We do not have a bathroom on board the boat. However we do make a stop halfway through our longer trips for a land-based lunch and bathroom break. We are usually relatively close to a bathroom so if it’s an emergency we will find one for you! There is also a bathroom at the dock, so we recommend everyone going before boarding the boat.

We understand things happen and we try to be as flexible as possible. All tours have a 48-hour cancellation policy, and a full refund will be provided. Groups of 4 or more are subject to a 72-hour cancellation policy. Unfortunately late cancellations, or no-shows will not be refunded.

We require a minimum of 4 guests for each trip, and reserve the right to cancel tours if we are below our minimum. We also reserve the right to cancel the trip if the captain deems the weather or conditions are unsafe. A full refund will be provided to all guests if a trip is cancelled.

We are following diligent cleaning and sanitization procedures, and are operating at a reduced capacity of 8 people. We want our tours to be a place where our guests can safely escape the constant reminders of the pandemic, and truly enjoy nature and our beautiful coast. For more details on our Covid procedures.
