We took the 1pm tour on May 5th, along with my mother-in-law and had a fantastic trip with Captain Gary! Whilst we weren't lucky enough to see the large numbers of orcas seen in the previous few days, we were still very fortunate to see two big male orcas, T125a and T128 I believe.
Such an amazing experience as it was our first time seeing orcas, and paired with Captain Gary's infectious passion for marine life and his knowledge, you couldn't ask for a better day out. As well as the whales we had the opportunity to see sea lions, seals, a bald eagle and some harbour porpoises off in the distance.
It was a pleasure taking a tour with a company so passionate about the conservation of marine life, and we would absolutely take another tour with them if we return to Vancouver Island.
