Wild 1

Wild 1 is our newest vessel, our 12 passenger 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. This vessel is our only one to be kept in the water year round, and is available for private charter all winter long.

Covered Boats

We also have two other covered boats built by Daigle marine. These boats are leased and can change from year to year, but they are very similar year to year. 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.
