We went on the greatest whale watching voyage. We saw orcas, eagles, salmon jumping right out of the water to be photographed and a dall's porpoise playing. I would highly recommend the Discovery Marine Safaris. The staff is friendly and informative. They care about the whales and are very cautious when boating near them. The boat is stopped and a hydrophone is lowered so you can hear these great creatures talking as they swim by. Lunch is served and the sandwich, veggies, fruit and dessert are delicious. It is well worth the driving time to take the scenic route from Victoria to this quaint little town. There are great little restaurants for dinner and if you are lucky you will see seals and orcas right there in the harbour. We are definitely coming back for the grizzley tour!
