A day out on the water with Jamie's Whalewatching means more than whales, though they are undoubtedly the star attraction. We certainly saw a few lovely grey whales spouting and showing off from aboard our covered 65-foot cruiser (nice and warm, and there was coffee, tea and hot chocolate!). The greys were feeding near Tofino's Long Beach, which the on-board Jamie's staff explained was a good spot these days (mid-May).
But we also saw eagles, some super-speedy black harbour porpoises, a lone harbour seal and dozens of barking Steller sea lions on our three-hour trip.
And the best bit? Marine animals don't really care if it's raining (and it was for us) - so you're pretty much guaranteed some good sightings with Jamie's no matter what! A great day out on the Tofino waters...
