Today was an eye opener for me, as a partner in this company I deal with office operations, photo editing, answering the phone, you know the routine stuff. I had the opportunity to go on a whale wildlife tour as the photographer, with my partner and 4 guests. Wow! So much respect for the profession. Imagine what your guide has to deal with on a tour, knowledgable in wildlife, history of the area, operating the boat, finding wildlife, answering many questions, ensuring guests are comfortable and safe, maintaining your required tickets to run a boat, take photo’s if there is an opportunity and run the boat safely while bobbing in the ocean swells! There have been many occasions when my partner has returned from a spectacular tour full of incredible sightings but no photo’s. Taking photo’s is no easy task while bobbing in the swells, I took over 300 and only half a dozen are worth keeping. Kudos to all Guides.

Today on Beachcomber Ocean Tours whale/wildlife tour we found 8 Bald Eagles and a Black Bear feeding on new vegetation.
While whale watching in Ucluelet today it was near the end of the tour when after much searching we found a humpback whale. Not only did we find a humpback, but a black bear was cruising the shore in the harbour. Join Beachcomber Ocean Tours for your whale watching experience you won’t be disappointed.
