We went on this tour in October and saw a number of humpback whales and large numbers of two types of Sea Lions. The naturalist taking the tour, Leah, was knowledgeable, was able to identify the individual whales that we saw, and provided information about the all the different species including the birds we could see. Above all she was friendly, approachable and clearly loved her job and enjoyed sharing her knowledge of the wildlife with us. The type of boat (covered with an upstairs viewing platform) was perfect for this type of activity and guests could shelter from the elements as we moved from spot to spot.
On time departure... great first time experience in Turbo Otter. We had a great flight and the beautiful scenery was even more amazing from the air! The Gardens were lovely with their fall color, and the entire experience was so well organized and planned. Graham, who drove the bus to Buchart gardens, shared details about the area from his experience growing up on the island.
A definitely must do! Orca Spirit adventure was amazing! We saw lots of animals, we were lucky finding our first humpback whale in the first 15-20 minutes of our trip. Our guide Ed was amazing, funny and knowledgeable. I was a bit worried about waves, but you simply cannot feel it in this powerful boat! I will definitely go back and do it again!
We saw 5 humpbacks at the same time, even though the weather was very rainy. The suits they give you help a big deal staying warm and dry. After 3.5 hours in the rain my clothes were completely dry
Was a great experience! We love the flowers. The travel is long, but is great. The bus is incredibly clean and the driver was very nice person and knowledge. We want to come again.
