Tom grew up near Niagara Falls in Ontario where he fostered a love for whales at a young age. As his knowledge and passion deepened, he also realized how important it was to keep whales thriving in the wild. Tomis’ dream of seeing killer whales in the wild was finally fulfilled on a trip to Vancouver Island in 2018 when he went on a tour with Eagle Wing. Along with a passion for whales, Tomis has a love for teaching and sharing knowledge with people. He holds a Bachelor of Science in geography, a Bachelor of Education and is a certified teacher. Being a naturalist provides the perfect opportunity to combine both his passions and make the ocean his classroom. Tomis enjoys helping guests have an amazing experience like he did on his first tour back in 2018.
