Wild 1

Wild One is an Eagle Craft built by the Campbell River Based company Daigle Marine. Originally built as tour boat, it was sold to logging company and spent most of its life moving crews along the coast. Purchased in 2018, the crew took on the huge project of repowering, and re-building the whole interior. With 3 heaters inside, this vessel is a comfortable ride in any weather.  Guests can walk around the sides for an unobstructed view, and the second level has space to seat six.

This vessel has a cruising speed of 30 knots. Wild 1 can be found on our Spring Bear and Water Fall tour in early season, on whale watching trips throughout the summer, and on our Grizzly Tours in the fall.

The latest addition to our fleet of covered boats is the M.V Tenacious III. The T3 (as we often call her) is a beautiful 30 passenger vessel with heated seating inside, upper deck seating out, as well a spacious walk around deck and onboard washroom. Built locally by Daigle Marine, the T3 is built to a very high standard, just like the other vessels in our fleet. This boat was custom made as a whale watching vessel, specifically our area. It was previously the primary vessel of Discovery Marine Safari's, which was brought under the Campbell River Whale Watching Tours brand in 2022. Throughout the season you will see the Tenacious III running our 4 hour Whale and Wildlife Tours, and then once we get into mid August, she is doing daily trips into Bute inlet for our Grizzly Bear Tours.

They offer plenty of deck space for wildlife viewing and photography. Covered boats are a popular choice for younger children and those wanting a bit more flexibility to walk around while on board, and stay comfortable despite the elements with in fully enclosed heated cabin (with large viewing windows!) Our covered boats can be found on whale watching trips throughout the summer, and on our Grizzly trips in the fall.
