From your pre-trip briefing to the possibility of listening to the orcas mysterious and beautiful songs via our advanced hydrophone technology, you will realize that you have made the right choice with Eagle Wing whale watching tours.
As passionate stewards of a world renown marine environment we are motivated to provide our guests with more than just, "a look at the whales". We realize that most of our guests have traveled great distances at high cost to experience what we have the privilege of doing daily. We respect, and ultimately are grateful for this and so with every departure we go above and beyond - maximizing guest satisfaction, overall comfort, and delivering the "WOW" factor!
The truth is, not all whale watching tours are created equal. Comfort aboard many competitors tour boats is sacrificed in order to 'get bums in seats'. Not at Eagle Wing; Our vessels offer walk-around comfort, accessible washrooms, and are designed to offer the smoothest ride possible. You will be offered waterproof jackets and pants if necessary, hats and gloves, blankets, protective glasses and even binoculars. Every detail has been considered and taken care of.
You will be treated to attentive service by dedicated professionals who have spent their lives learning the intricacies of the local ecosystem. When most operators are heading back to the dock Eagle Wing captains are going the extra mile (or 50) to share the secret coves, gray whale feeding beaches, or eagle's nests that they've discovered and want to share with you.
