We decided to take the tour with Hurricane Jack after reading about his outfit here in TA and a recommendation from the owners of our rental home in Buckley Bay. I could not have been more pleased our 6-7 hour tour left around 8:30 am and we made it back around 7:30 that night as dusk fell. In between, Jen our guide took us on a wildlife adventure I will not soon forget! The trip over to the mainland on the Bute Inlet was awesome...our Indian hosts were knowledgable and engaging. We saw several bears from both the blinds and down on the river banks....the highlight was a mother and two cubs! I believe we saw seven or eight that day...the salmon in the river were amazing to watch...and the bears just ate and ate. I would have been satisfied there...next came 5 Bald Eagles along the way. Wow...now it was time for the sea-life to put on a show? After lunch we headed back through the Arran Rapids so much fun...and it was time for the stellar sea-lion show...then it was the dolphins whom surrounded our boat by the hundreds! Yes hundreds....seals were all over as we zoomed home and finally a whale gave us a sighting too.....a well run outfit, well worth the price of admission.

What a wonderful day we had. "Fly-Guy" Aaron who was in charge was very knowledgeable, and gave us a day to remember. The exhilaration of the boat trip, seeing bears, Orca, eagles, sealions and more, with a good lunch half way through the day, was one of the highlights of our trip to Canada. We were impressed with the skills of our leader, we were able to get close enought to see the orca, but far enough away to give these beautiful animals space so as not to be stressed by our presence. Thanks to Aaron and Hurricane Jack and all the rest of the staff for a brilliant time.

Located on Dock E, Discovery Harbour Marina, this company advertised a seven hour trip in a covered boat with bathroom, which in fact lasted ten hours! Boat holds 12 which makes it a manageable group to maneuver. Went to Bute Inlet and saw a dozen bears, including mom's and cubs. Boat captain, Jan, made sure that we saw dolphins, orcas, humpback whales, sea lions. We were joined by First National guide in the Bute Inlet. Both guides were very knowledgeable and were enthusiastic about their jobs. We were a small group so that we could move from viewing area to area with ease, which enabled us to see more bears than the larger groups. I found this company to be very friendly when making reservations. Kathleen M.

This really was a dream come true. We went to British Columbia with the hope of seeing Grizzly Bears catching salmon in the rivers. Had looked at the various options from Campbell River and booked with this Company in advance. Everything went like clockwork " Hurricane Jack" aranged a perfect day including clear blue skies!! He was informative during the 2 hour boat trip to the Orford River and provided an excellent picnic lunch.
We saw a large male grizzly fishing the river within 15 minutes of arriving and then spent over an hour watching a mother and cub fishing the river and catching 3 salmon. On the return journey to Campbell river we saw sea lions and a pod of Orca whales, the end of a perfect day.
Highly recommenden and many thanks to the team at Campbell River Whale Watching

Went on the ocean rapids and whale watching tour.....wildlife sightings were endless, orca, over 100 dolphins, porpoise, seals, sea lions and even a cheeky black bear on the coastal rocks. Ocean rapids were great fun and we were delighted to get absolutely soaked....it's what we paid for!!! Jack was a fantastic guide and knew the area so well and had great knowledge of its history and the wildlife.

The only slightly negative point was "lunch" consisted only of a cereal bar and a coffee and we were provided with no water for 5 hrs on the ocean......had we known this before we would have eaten a bigger breakfast and brought our own fluids. That said this is a "must do" tour and great value for money - excellent fun.
