Well what can I say?
My wife and were visiting BC for a holiday. Wanted to see the wildlife and after research picked Discovery to give us our fix. We booked the Grizzly tour for Saturday 15th Sept. This tour exceeded our wildest expectations. We visited 6 or 7 viewpoints and we witnessed 18 different Grizzlies feeding or fishing. We were able get within a distance of less than 40 feet on some occasions . Just a phenomenal day.
Sunday 16th we had booked the whale watching trip but had low expectations (one never knows on these trips if you will see anything and having had such a brilliant day with the Grizzlies did not believe we could get anything better BUT As we set off we saw a group of Transient Orcas pass us by. Then a large pod of Pacific white sided Dolphins came and played around the boat and we all thought how lovely but later came to witness the less than sweet side of nature.
We had managed to locate and watch a hump back whale so by now we all thought that was enough for one day until!!
Our captain was informed that a group of Orcas had trapped a large number of the dolphins in Village Bay and looked like they were in for the kill. We sped to the scene and witnessed the amazing spectacle of this group of 4 Orcas cornering the dolphins before some were able to scape but not before the Orcas tossed a dolphin in the air before feasting on it and celebrating with tail flips and jumping out of the water.
These past 2 days have been 2 of the best travel days of my life and thanks for those experiences go to the staff and organisation at your company.
Special thanks to Captain John and his crew member (sorry forgot her name) first Nation guides and to Captain Al and Rueben for the Whale watching trip. Just an unforgettable and once in a lifetime experience for me.
Thanks to all. Jim and Sue Simpson
