This tour exceeded our expectations in all areas. The boat was very comfortable, and we were surprised that there were even snacks and drinks available for purchase. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable, and made sure that we were engaged and interested throughout the tour. The Khutzeymateen was just stunning, and it was such a privilege to visit. And finally...we saw so many bears! The captain and staff were amazing bear-spotters! And the whales, sea lions, and eagles were all a bonus.
Very good staff on the tour boat ... informative ... nice clean toilets! Loved the views with the bears and eagles..
Very professional and knowledgeable crew. Comfortable travel and we saw what we came for!
The boat was clean and comfortable. The staff was amazing and made the experience very memorable. And the bears came out right on cue!
We had a great time and loved all Sites and stories. We will definitely be back again
The Grizzly Bear Tour was like a homerun : A sunny day with 5 Grizzlies, 8 Orcas, 2 Humpbacks and a dozen Bald Eagles are more than anyone could expect.
The staff was incredibly nice and helpful! The surroundings were gorgeous! And the wildlife viewing was once in a lifetime. :)
Absolutely FANTASTIC!! This tour should be on everyone's bucket list. We will definitely do it again and highly recommend.
Exceed our expectations!!! Great tour and great staff.
A splendid day which exceeded expectation. We saw 14 Grizzley Bears, two with three Cubs, and had good whale watching too. Well worth it
This was a very comfortable and easy ride with great opportunities to watch grizzlies, humpbacks and seals in their natural habitats. The crew gave us fascinating insights into the history, wildlife, traditional cultures and changing economies of the area as we traveled, and treated us to a forever memorable show of eagles to top off a wonderful day. Absolutely a worthwhile trip!
The crew was helpful and caring. Excellent care was taken when spotting Grizzly bears not to disturb them and approach them quietly. Whales didn't come up but at leat showed their tails. Harbour seals also approach was gentle not to disturb them in their rock. The fly in with the Bald Eagles was really spectacular. Once in a lifetime chance. A great day to photographs and remember. only regret is I could not take a photo of a Grizzly who stood on his paws for a very brief moment.
This boat tour was one of the most memorable things we have done on our Canadian holiday. Prince Rupert Adventure Tours is a very professional, safety conscious, well organised business. The staff are friendly, informative about wildlife and 'Captain Doug' made sure we could see as much wildlife as possible but without disturbing it. It was a privilege to see bears in their territory as we quietly observed them grazing on the shoreline. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone visiting Prince Rupert
Very relaxed and friendly tour. I felt comfortable that the bears were not compromised in any way.
We had a wonderful day from start to finish. The staff were friendly and full of information about the trip and nature. We not only saw 8 grizzly bears, but a wonderful show by 3 hump back whales and on the return a wonderful display of bald eagles. We saw so much more than we anticipated. The lunch provided to us was great and there was coffee and snacks available for purchase. This was definitely the highlight of our trip to Prince Rupert. The boat was also very nice, very clean and gave us a smooth ride all day.
We saw numerous bears, whales and other sea life. The bald eagle "show" was fantastic. I have been to Brackendale during their bald eagle season a few times, this was by far more memorable. Overall this trip was better than any bear and whale watching tour we've ever been on, including Victoria and Ucluelet. The ship was very clean, comfortable and well maintained. The included lunch was also very good. The Employees on board and in the store were very helpful, personable and well informed. Overall, this was a very enjoyable tour.
Extremely comfortable boat ride. Great viewing of the bears and the marine mammals. A little less enthusiasm from the guide about the industrial development plans would have been appreciated, especially about proposals that put the wildlife and the natural beauty of the area in serious jeopardy.
We saw many grizzly bears, bald eagles, harbour seals and even 2 humpbacked whales, all at a safe distance for us and the animals. The boat, captain, crew and weather were supurb! keep up the great work!
Our boat was immaculate and easy to view from inside and out. Our tour guides were very educated and made sure everyone had a positive experience. The captain was equally informative and I really appreciated the efforts to make sure we saw as much wildlife and points of interest as possible. I will return most definitely at an earlier date in the season to experience it again. Worth every penny!
