The Eagle Eye Adventures team is proud to show you around the beautiful Discovery Islands and Johnstone Strait. Our team is knowledgeable, well-trained, and we are all Transport Canada Approved guides.
We do our best to help you enjoy every minute as we help you explore. We try to help you understand what you are seeing as we talk about our wildlife, our history, and the role of our First Nations friends.
We work with scientists and researchers from all over the world and contribute data to publications throughout the year.
Our particular passion is whales – orcas and humpbacks, and we are working towards being named a Whale Heritage Site.
Our straights and open waterways are what we’re famous for. The unique currents caused by ebbing and flooding tides support a food chain that starts with phytoplankton up through herring, salmon, dolphins, seals, orcas and humpback whales. On land, you can find cinnamon, black, and grizzly bears, deer, elk, cougar, wolves, and of course bald eagles, watching you as you watch them.
Not only can we show you these magnificent creatures, but we can also give you a better understanding of the complex ecosystem which supports these animals. We work closely with other tour companies and scientists to protect our environment and are candidates to be named a World Whale Heritage Site. We are doing everything we can to preserve our whales for the future.
The best way to see Grizzly Bears in their natural habitat is to join us on our covered boat and ride in comfort to Bute Inlet and the mouth of the Orford River. This is home to a significant concentration of coastal grizzlies. During the late summer and early autumn, bears are drawn to the many salmon spawning streams feeding into the coastal inlets. While the local bear population reaches its peak in the autumn, during the spring and summer bears feed on sedges, succulents, and grasses that make up the river estuary. These ongoing sources of high-quality food are why coastal grizzlies and brown bears are larger than inland bears.
Don’t miss this unforgettable opportunity to witness the wildlife of Vancouver Island along some of the most majestic coastlines in the world!
