Lunch Aboard the Raincoast Maiden

It’s not too late to join us for a delicious gourmet lunch (prepared by Heartwood Kitchen in Ucluelet) aboard the Raincoast Maiden while anchored in an idyllic location.

We’re open until October 3rd, so join us on our Broken Group Islands Wildlife Cruise to see wildlife, spectacular scenery and enjoy a fabulous meal. It is an experience unlike any other!

Otterly Adorable

It is such a treat to see sea otters on a daily basis. We see single otters as well as mothers with pups, and Grampa Otto is always a highlight. Unfortunately he is often “on vacation” for a few days, but more often than not he is entertaining his beloved human guests!

Range of the Brown Pelican

Barkley Sound lies at the northern end of the range of Brown Pelicans, so once in a while we’re lucky enough to see them. It is always a treat when we do!

Bear Sightings in 2022

Bear sightings have been more reliable than usual this year. So far we have been lucky enough to see bear(s) every day in July.
This incredible image was taken by one of our guests, Frank Dahmen. It was his third tour with us and we take that as a compliment 🙂 We hope to see you again, Frank & Beate.

Wildlife and Otter Critters

Our 2022 season is now in full swing and we’ve had a variety of consistent wildlife sightings. There are a number of sea otters in our area, which means that we are able to find one or more otters on most days.
Thanks to our guest, David Clow, for letting me showcase his images of sea otters seen on our tour on May 30th.

We are now open for the 2022 Season!  We’ve been out on a couple of tours and have thoroughly enjoyed being out on these waters after a long winter off.

Don’t miss the opportunity to join us for a day of wildlife viewing and breathtaking scenery. Our award winning tour follows a scenic route through the sheltered waters of the Broken Group Islands where you’ll be served you a delicious gourmet lunch while anchored in a sheltered cove, meal prepared by Heartwood Kitchen Restaurant in Ucluelet.
