My husband and I went on the afternoon tour on Monday. It was our second time and we will go again next year. We thoroughly enjoyed our outing. Unfortunately we didn't see whales or bears this time but did see eagles and sea lions. The scenery and weather were spectacular. And captain Jack and Peter did a great job. Thanks so much and see you next year!

Hi Connie,

Thank you so much for taking the time to write this review!

We appreciate that you've joined us in the past and will again in the future!

Sometimes the whales and bears evade us, but the eagles and sea lions are always a lot of fun to watch! It's great to hear that you enjoyed the weather and all of the scenery!

See you next year!

We went on a 4 hour tour this past week, and the experience surpassed any of our expectations. We were given warm suits to wear on the zodiac, and toques to keep our heads warm - as it is still a little chilly on the water in April! The guide and naturalist made the experience exciting and highly informative; their knowledge of these waters is unsurpassed. We saw orcas, eagles and sea lions and learned about their ecology, admired gorgeous waterfalls, gazed up at snow-capped peaks from the inner waters of the Discovery Islands, and zoomed through tidal rapids as our expert guide navigated these turbulent channels. I can't remember the last time I have smiled and laughed so much! Thank you Campbell River Whale Watching and Adventure tours for a great adventure. Highly recommended :)

Such fun!! We took the 6 hr tour on the boat. We saw so many animals. The sight of the whales had my grandbabies so excited!! They provided lunch on Stewart island. There was a washroom on board also.

We took our two granddaughters on the whale watching tour with this company and were thrilled! There were only the 4 of us and one other family of 4 on the boat. It was a chilly day so we were suited up in the cozy flotation suits provided and away we went. After some searching for the elusive whales, during which we were entertained by seals, eagles, amazing scenery, fishing camps and other boats, we finally came up on a pod of humpbacks. These massive creatures seemed to be showing off for our viewing pleasure, breaching and spouting very near out boat. Later we were treated to hot chocolate and granola bars by our terrific captain. We were very happy our captain did not give up on finding these whales. I would recommend Campbell River Whale Watching and Adventure Tours to everyone!

A first rate Grissly bear tour, and we got to watch humpbacks playing on the way there. A great experience from the dock until we got back. A great way to spend a day.
