Looking Forward

2020 definitely turned out to be very different for all of us! We have missed cruising through the magical scenery of the Broken Group Islands each day, we have missed the daily wildlife sightings and the close interactions with people from all over the world.

We look forward to running tours again, hopefully starting in May 2021.

Closed for the Remainder of the 2020 Season

CLOSED FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE 2020 SEASON

Wondering where we are?

Sadly, we have had to make the difficult decision to remain closed for the rest of the 2020 season. After taking everything into careful consideration, we feel this to be the only feasible option and best for everyone.  We are off course disappointed but do look forward to operating again in 2021, well rested and with renewed enthusiasm!  

We sincerely hope that you will consider taking a tour with us in 2021.   

Take care and stay safe in these unusual times!  

Keeping in touch….

We miss being out on the water every day but look forward to taking you out on a cruise once it is safe to do so!

Hopefully we will be able to welcome you soon.

In meantime, please check Tourism Ucluelet’s website for travel updates: https://www.discoverucluelet.com/covid-19

Still open ….

We are still open and running our Broken Group Islands Wildlife Cruise. Recent trips have been great as there is still lots of wildlife (& islands!!) around. October 15th will be their last day of the season.

Great Week on the Water

Last week was a good one for us in terms of wildlife sightings. We saw a Gray whale one day, a Humpback the next, then a group of Orcas and we also saw a healthy Black Bear sow with her TRIPLETS a couple of time. Most days we saw sea otters, all this along with the “usual” sightings of sea lions, seals, a multitude of eagles and other sea birds.

Our Lucky Day

This week we were lucky enough to experience a great wolf sighting in the Broken Group Islands! We saw a splash, then saw a wolf swimming across a small channel & get out on the next island, shake himself, stare at us for a moment, then disappear into the bushes!

Thanks to Dane McArthur for letting us share his photo.

Bedraggled Creatures

A rather bedraggled looking Bald eagle ….. we had a great tour yesterday, despite the rainy conditions.

The only one missing is you!!
