These bears are NOT fenced in, this is NOT a National Geographic movie, this is REAL and you’re right there to witness every moment!
Don’t forget this is Canada. Even on a hot summer day it can be very cool on the water. The spacious, enclosed and heated cabins of our state of the art vessels ensure that you are always comfortable. Our boats also feature multiple viewing decks and WASHROOMS!!!
At Discovery Marine Safaris we are committed to sharing our knowledge and passion with everyone that visits this remarkable place that we call home. Our on board Marine Naturalists are some of the finest on the coast, continuously interacting with our guests and interpreting all that this diverse ecosystem has to behold. They also provide a spectacular presentation that is sure to inspire and move you! Our Captains have all spent most of their lives sailing the waters off BC’s coast. You won’t find more experienced, entertaining, or engaging mariners anywhere else.
A local bakery makes fresh gourmet sandwiches and cookies that are delivered to our office moments before departure. Fair trade organic, locally roasted coffee and an assortment of teas are included. We do carry bottled water on board, however we highly recommend bringing your own reusable water bottle that can be filled from our large filtered water jug and help us reduce our environmental impact.
No words to describe this phenomenal experience! We saw 8 Humpbacks, with 2 of them breaching in front of us over and over and over again!! Add to that, the trip around Mitlenatch Island with the Sea Lions and all the seabirds, and it was a trip to be treasured. Captain John and Kaitlin were awesome, with their enthusiasm to share their knowledge and experience with the passengers.

I was impressed with the respectful attitude of the staff, not only to clients but to the wildlife. I've been out with operators who took the boat too close to whales, but this operator was very respectful, slowing the boat well before encountering whales and staying at least the required distance away. Once the whales approached us, which is fine, but the captain never intruded on the animals. Well done. The boat was sturdy and comfortable.
