Sea Otter Soup

Seeing sea otters in the wild is always a delight! Some sea otters are quite shy but this particular group doesn’t seem to mind us coming over for a visit.

Luckily this sow and her triplets like Ucluelet as much as we do. Recently we have seen her almost daily.

 

Wildlife Tour Company of the Year in BC

We are extremely proud to have been awarded “Wildlife Tour Company of the Year in BC” for the second year in a row!!!

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.

The boys are leaving town

The “boys club” has thinned out considerably in recent days.  Only a few California sea lions remain as most have left the area and headed south to meet up with their ladies. Luckily they don’t stay away for long, so we eagerly await their return in late summer.

One Big Momma!

Recently we’ve been lucky enough to get the odd sighting of this sow and her two cubs

Spring in the Broken Group Islands

Spring is a beautiful time of year in the Broken Group Islands when the colours are vibrant, the water so clear that it gets hard to tell where the water and air meet.

Now Open for the Season

Yesterday we ran our first tour of the season.  We had sunny skies, good views and wildlife sightings, a delicious gourmet meal catered by Heartwood Kitchen while anchored in the Broken Group Islands and we even saw three Gray whales!  

Heading Home

After an unexpected delay we finally left Victoria harbour yesterday morning to make the journey up the West coast. There are MANY waves to cross along the way but luckily the weather was (mostly) in our favour. The Raincoast Maiden arrived in Ucluelet this afternoon, safe and sound. We’re thrilled to be back! Our tours will start on May 4th.
