We are proud members of several eco-tourism and wildlife associations, including WildWhales.org and the Wilderness Tourism Association. We also have partnerships with local environmental advocacy groups such as Pacific Wild and the North Island Marine Mammal Stewardship Association.
We follow best practices of the “Whale Wise Guidelines”. Additionally, we support and whenever possible visit the Cetacea Lab to help our guests learn more about their role in protecting these magnificent marine mammals.
We hop into small boats, kayaks, and paddle boards for viewing wildlife to minimize disturbance. We have nurtured personal connections with the Gitga’at and Kitasoo Xai’Xais First Nations communities, for which we are very grateful,
Our bear guides are certified with the Commercial Bear Viewing Association. The Association’s purpose is to promote sustainable bear viewing in BC, and aid in the protection of wild bears and their delicate ecosystems.
When it comes to the seafood onboard, we have partnered with OceanWise to ensure we are meeting sustainable criteria. Chef Ben purchases all our seafood and meat directly himself; he knows where, when and how the seafood was caught, and which farm the meat is coming from.
