From: Quispamsis, NB


Trip Highlights: (where we went, what we saw, etc.) Saw one minke whale, several humpback whales including Hunter and Freckles, transient orcas, Steller sea lions. What a trip! Lunge feeding humpbacks, a beautiful breach! And then we saw a unique interaction between Freckles and the transients. The orcas seemed to be harassing Freckles, almost seemed like they were hunting her. She held her ground and at times came head on to the orcas. Ive been whale watching for 15 years and have never seen this kind of interaction between species; Ive even worked on whale watching boats! What a show!!! Additional Comments: Crew were fantastic and extremely knowledgeable. So glad we decided to come out. Would recommend this company to anyone. Lunch was delicious.

Report by: Julia Spriggs

From: Dawson City, Yukon


Trip Highlights: (where we went, what we saw, etc.) Out to the ocean we went! We saw orcas from 2/3 of the northern resident clans. We were able to listen to their songs to identify them. After this, we ventured to see the big humpbacks. There were about 6 humpbacks giving us a show. Additional Comments: Apart from these highlights, we saw sea lions, Pacific white-sided dolphins, Dalls porpoises and one black bear! Not to mention a plethora of bids. Great sights, great folk and great soup. Thank you for the memories. We loved it!

Trip Highlights: (where we went, what we saw, etc.) Today we saw a humpback (Geometric) lunge-feed, white-sided dolphins stealing food from a lone orca, followed by a family of orca (A30s and I15s) and Steller sea lions sun bathing on the rocks. Orca followed our boat and played in the surf! Additional Comments: Absolutely amazing trip! Surpassed my already high expectations. Knowledgeable and respectful team. We have already booked our second trip!
