What people are saying about Southern Gulf Islands, Canada

Both Captain and guide Jim were excellent. Very knowledgable and informative I learned loads about the local environment and animal species to be found in it. They were also spot on at finding the Humpbacks. The afternoon will be a standout high point of a very memorable trip.

This was a relaxing sail on a well maintained vessel. The crew were informative, gave instructions well and always ready to answer questions. It might have been a more exciting trip if there had been more wind. But my family of 11 enjoyed the outing immensely.

Amazing trip, very knowledgeable guide and we saw about 12 humpback whales, sea lions and sea birds. A highlight of our Canada trip. The staff were so friendly and you could tell were genuinely excited to share their knowledge.

These guys were great! They did an excellent job of finding porpoises & humpback whales for us to see! Really nice staff too!

Such an awesome experience! We saw 2 orca brothers and a humpback. We also saw sea lions and seals!
