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 typically do a loop around Quadra Island

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 🙂

Check out what kind of local wildlife you might encounter here 

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 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.

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 4 for our longer 6 hour trips. Kids under 4 can join us on our 2 hour sunset trip or 3 hour 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 a also bathroom at the dock, so we recommend everyone going before boarding the boat.
