We booked a salmon fishing trip and called a day ahead to confirm but it wasn't until we arrived the day of the trip that we were told that salmon weren't really running yet. He said the salmon were in one area and they had caught one or two in a different area. He took us to the different area where they had caught one or two and of course we didn't catch anything. Then about an hour into our trip he told us that since the other people who were supposed to be on our trip didn't show our trip was going to be shortened to only three hours. I didn't think it was appropriate that we were penalized because of no shows. They also should have been up front that salmon weren't really running when we called to confirm a day ahead - we could have gone crabbing with them instead.

Our guide was a nice guy and the weather was good

The guides Chris and Demi were fun and knowledgeable.

Equipment was easy to learn and use

Office is at a great setting. The place is nice. Staff is very friendly. Being out on the water is fun no matter what. Price is reasonable.

First, the destination was changed. For a weather related reason supposedly, but it was a letdown relative to expectations. There should a warning about such possible change in the description of the kayaking tour. Second, the guide (Ryan) was pretty inexperienced and did not do a good job at showing us around and explaining much. He wasn't professional enough in his manners. Third, we waited for an hour nearly for the van to pick us up on the way back. Poor organization.

Bryce and Ashley were a wealth of information on our tour. This is definitely on the top ten moments of my whole life. The whales were breathtaking! I'd go again in a heartbeat.

We saw a lot of whales and the weather was great. The captain and the naturalist were very knowledgable about the area and the whales.
