The trip was excellent. Comfortable and clean boat. Well qualified staff. Got to see grizzly bears and feeding whales on one trip. Even if we hadn’t seen wild bears the scenery is among the most beautiful I’ve ever seen. The captain shared his photos with everyone for no charge. Some tours charge for the photos as an add on- not this group. A pleasant surprise.
crew was polite and informative, during the tour, very nice scenery, appreciated the efforts by the crew to find wildlife for the passengers to view and while whale watching the crew ensured they maintained a reasonable distance from the whales to not disturb them while the passengers were still able to view the animals in their natural settings
the eagles at the end of the trip was worth the price alone

Very friendly statt. Faclities excellent and expectations were exceeded.
The people were very friendly and knowledgeable, we had a great time! Loved that they had locally brewed beers on board! And the staff had no issues stopping to chat and helping us find where to point our binoculars. So worth it
The tour seemed very well thought out & planned. All the staff were friendly and helpful, and were quick to answer questions with a smile. I have two teenage boys & they only used their phones for pictures - to me that's a win! They both said they had fun & enjoyed the scenery & animals, as did I. The tour boat was clean, comfortable & well equipped also, and as this was my first time on the ocean I appreciated how safe it felt. My two boys & I had a great time, and this tour was a highlight of our vacation. Thank you very much!
What an awesome tour. The crew was very professional and went out of their way in providing us a spectacular experience. We saw everything from seals and their white babies, tons of beautiful bald eagles, a mother grizzly and her two cubs to whales and even one with a baby. I would absolutely recommend this tour to anyone coming to prince Rupert.. Thank you all.
The BEARS - what can I say about these amazing creatures? There are really no words that can do justice to this entire experience - it is something that must be done in order to understand what I mean. I personally found it to be magical, spiritual and ... and ... and ... I have no words.
I highly recommend you to take this tour if you have the opportunity. The staff are very helpful and knowledgeable, the boat is very clean and comfortable; the entire experience is worth every penny of the cost.
The whales were amazing, the EAGLES WOW!!! and the BEARS!!!!!!
Really enjoyed the day and managed to see not only some Grizzlies but also some hump back whales and some bald eagles. The staff were all really friendly and informative too. I thought at first it would be a long day but the time passed really quickly and the boat was not completely full so there was plenty of space for everyone to find a good spot for photo-taking. Would definitely recommend this trip.
The whole experience was great and the boat very comfortable with good vuewing options. many thanks
Adventure Tours is fantastic! Jen, Pam, and Elaine excelled at making the tour an enjoyable one. Not only did we see eight grizzlies, but Captain Doug maneuvered the boat right up to the banks of the inlet so the passengers could get stellar photos. In addition, the crew made sure we got several bonuses including sea lions. When Captain Doug spotted signs of whales, he turned the craft around as four humpbacks made themselves visible. Finally, the crew drew in twelve eagles with, I believe, beef fat for more great photos.
The tour and the day was better than I could ever have expected. I have already encouraged some of my photography friends to make a point to come up for this tour. I can wholly endorse Adventure Tours to everyone. Bring yourself, your friends, or your family. You will be treated well and you will see wildlife that you simply can’t otherwise see.
It was an awesome trip. The boat was comfortable and there was room for everyone to see and take pictures. It was all so well organized and informative. We had an amazing sighting of a mother bear and three cubs. We got close to them without disturbing or upsetting them and we watched them for about half an hour feeding and moving along the shore line. . We saw several other bears but that mom and cubs was the highlight. We were lucky enough to see whales on our way up and back and we saw lots of eagles. Take a good camera because it’s such an amazing opportunity for wonderful pictures. Such a memorable day.
Absolutely first class in all manner - professional and pleasant staff, clean equipment, well organized. One of the best tours I've ever taken anywhere in the world. A must do for anyone visiting PR. Please thank all staff for a memorable experience
The crew were exceptional , value for money outstanding . We saw 6 grizzly bears , a family of 5 whales, an otter and 50 or so bald eagles . A truly memorable experience . Thank you .
The staff were very informative and helpful. The trip was full of wonderful surprises and extras. Want to go again soon.
Was a amazing experience overall,I really enjoyed it
Nice encounters wildlife, pleasant trip with the boat.
The service to use your binoculairs was unexpected and super! (I’ve lost mine some time ago).
Thank you for this nice experience on our 4- month Canada visit.
Was totally amazing. Was on your first trip of the year...that was great. Took my older brother from Alberta yesterday ( June 21) . Unbelievable! He was having a bit of trouble with binoculars and his camera so was “ very thankful” the captain air dropped his fabulous photos. We were looking forward to that tour yesterday and you didn’t disappoint us! Thanks for a wonderful day!!
The trip was amazing, including the weather. We saw the grizzlies as well as whales, sea lions, seals, eagles and various shore birds. We enjoyed the talks on the indigenous communities, how the whales feed, migration routes and the 3 - 45’s. The crew were amazing.
Very friendly staff, we viewed the grizzlies as hoped.
The huge bonus was Captain Doug sharing his pictures
with us as we don’t have a camera with any telescopic lenses.
Also pulling over for the humpback whale and feeding the eagles was awesome
Beautiful scenery and great wildlife.
You could have done no more to make this a perfect day! Loved all the informative commentary, possibly though you could add more in the commentary of the life of these bears themselves. I am sure there is a lot more info the public could learn about them. Still a perfect day, the highlight of our holiday!
A friend recommended this company, I was extremely excited to see that we could go out on this past Wednesday tour and booked while we were starting out on vacation. Staff were awesome. Pictures from feeding 🦅 On the return trip turned out far better than my grizzly photos. Happy for us that the boat was half full as it was difficult to manoeuvre the camera or to for find a secure spot to photograph from with a large lens. Towards the end on our last siting which was also the closest to the bear, I had to stand back are there was no room to go up front. I would be happy to pay a bit more to have a secure spot to take pictures from, as the grizzlies were my main focus. On the ad that I seen and booked the tour it showed a zodiac type of boat so from the beginning I figured we would be going out in a smaller craft once in the area. But again I’m looking at it from a photographers point of view. I’m extremely happy with my Eagle pictures though. It was a wonderful experience for a first time visit. I’ll save up the money though for a more intimate experience. Thank you 😊 it was an amazing day trip and I would recommend your company! Is it still possible to get a copy of the download I my never came through🤗
Had a wonderful day! Saw multiple Grizzlies closeup in a beautiful nature setting. On the way back we were lucky enough to even see a whale
Very knowledgeable and friendly crew! Beautiful, clean boat with floor to ceiling glass windows. We saw grizzlies, orca whales, sea lions, seals and eagles. Lucked out with a crystal clear day and mostly calm seas at end of July. Long pants still probably best as cool on deck. Recommend vegetarian sandwich for lunch. Thanks PR Adventoure Tours!!
Great trip. Professional and friendly. Highly recommended.
This trip totally exceeded all expectations! The staff, education and experience were exceptional! Plus the captain shared his pictures with us! Thank you so much :)
Captain and crew were very knowledgeable about area and wildlife. Saw everything we wanted to.
Magical experience. Wonderful crew.
Staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. We saw grizzlies,Wales and eagles up close.
We have been on many excursions in different locations and countries and we felt that this was by far the best experience. The knowledge displayed by the guides was excellent and very informative and presented in a professional manner. The vessel was very comfortable and afforded great viewing areas to take in the magnificent scenery and wildlife. The sandwiches were also of above average quality.
Thanks to all the crew.
We saw grizzly bears, whales, and eagles on the same boat trip- not sure how anyone could be dissatisfied after this.
A few logistical details for anyone who likes to know this stuff ahead of time like me- Check in was 30 minutes before the boat left and they do not mess around with leaving on time- we actually left three minutes early- I checked my watch. The lunch was alright- nothing special (sandwich and a drink). They also have a cash bar on the boat with additional drinks (including alcohol), snacks, and souvenirs. There were two clean bathrooms for use. Finally, people seemed eager to board and get a great seat from the very start, but they don't open the outdoor decks until after you get going so that doesn't matter much. I was in and out of my seat all day so your initial seat isn't that important. They point out the whales on the way to and from the grizzly bear park. They don't talk while in the park, but you can tell that someone has spotted a bear because the boat slows down a lot and starts slowly creeping towards the shore. Alright- that's all I feel like writing! Have fun!
professionally delivered experience all the way! Great equipment, knowledgeable staff and lots of bears - a first rate experience
All the crew look after very well for all the customers, .we make twice for thaïs trip, this year, and last year. And it was each Time awsome.we recomand your companie with our friends.
A+, 100% perfect score for the crew, vessel, and cooperative wildlife.
We had a great day on the water! The boat was modern and comfortable, with lots of good viewing space on multiple decks on 3 levels, forward, aft and on the top. The crew were knowledgable and friendly. We were able to get remarkably close to grizzlies on multiple occasions, including in one case a mother with three cubs and two larger young that were probably only recently weaned and were now roaming independently. The deep sides of the fjords allowed Mike to get the boat in really close with minimal noise and without disturbing the bears. We got some great photos! The scenery heading over the Khutzeymateen and into the sanctuary was spectacular. On the way back we got to see a few humpbacks and seals, as well as some great closeup action with bald eagles. A very worthwhile trip - book in advance to be sure not to miss it!
