Our best day in BC. Even though the weather was not good at all we still had a blast. Our suits protected and insulated us from the elements especially at high speeds. Saw a lot of wildlife and the view was spectacular.
Hotel pick up and drop off was punctual and the drivers friendly and chatty.

Fantastic trip, far exceeded our expectations, the captain really delivered the fun! I highly recommend this trip to anyone that loves being on the water and getting sea spray in your face, getting up close to seals, eagles,etc while learning many interesting facts about both the creature and human residents of Howe Sound. The trip was a highlight of our vacation, the best!

Went on this tour with my teenage sons and had a blast. The tour guide was excellent and the scenery was magnificent. An awesome way to experience part of the beauty of the area. My sons enjoyed getting wet on the ride and getting to see harbor seals were an added bonus to the tour. A great time !

Great tour. Ready for some thrill in vancouver. This may be the one for you. We were properly equipped with insulated and semi-water proof coats before embarking the boat and safety briefing was given. I felt well-taken care of. The hotel pick up ride to the tour company was comfortable and my guide Darryn was very friendly and hospitable. Boat ride was thrilling with many surprised sharp turns and a little water splashes. We get to see seals sunbathing on the rocks, ducks, eagles and seagulls. Darryn was an experience boat rafter. He made several stops along the way to introduce us the sceneries. Took this tour this summer. Remember to bring your sunglasses (very important as it protects your eyes that keeps gushing in wind because the boat is traveling at a very fast speed - to me it feels like 100km/hr) and the sunlight). Will definitely recommend this trip.

Great fun. The guide/driver was a local, born on one of the islands. He knew the best places to go and how to drive the boat (spins etc).
