Safe approach to whales / dolphins
Valuable learning experience
Minimal impact on the marine environment
Own research / support for conservation
Small company with 3 beautiful motor yachts with trips to South Alaska, Haida Gwaii (Q Charlotte Islands) BC mainland to see bears, and also North Inside Passage (Johnson Strait) - Alert Bay / Port McNeil area of Vancouver Island. I have been on 6 trips - the crew are so knowledgable about the local whale population, identifying, the local culture, history and customs, and their trips are always wonderful. Kayaks on board for guests to use, zodiacs for shore landings etc, arrange local Haida guides to explain the First Nations' ancient sites and totems. Boats sometimes captained by company owner, Randy, who loves whales as I do. Always aware that marine mammals must be protected and avoids approaching too close. Humpbacks in Frederick Sound, Orca in Johnson Strait, Fin Wales Hecate Strait, dolphins, seals, and lots more. Cabins small and functional, excellent WC and showers, and wonderful food. No hesitation in recommending them. I go back again and again.
We look forward to having you aboard again soon!
