Re: Ecofriendly whale watching tours
The link as given leads to a WW company like any other-the fact is that to see Whales-any Whales in the time frame paid for then you're going to have to do so under power-that means burning fuel.
Sailing is fine when the wind is blowing and you have time to zig and zag back and forth hoping to arrive at a certain place but the simple fact is that Whales move constantly with the tides and currents travelling to feed on different Salmon runs coming down through Johnstone Strait.
You'll also have to burn fuel to travel to the 3 destinations as given-have you thought of that?
First off you're going to have to spend some money to go Whale Watching and your beat bet is out of Telegraph Cove try www.whaletime.com out of nearby Port McNeil.
A short Kayak tour out of Tofino or Ucluelet might give you a look at some juvenile Grey Whales/Dolphins/Seals Sea Lions maybe a few jumping Salmon and occasionally Orcas or Humpbacks but it's no sure thing Cetacea on the outside don't habituate in any one place except for the aforementioned juvenile Greys.
Try tlaook.com for something different.
The Southern Gulf Islands offer tours to see the most harassed marine mammals in Canada-if that's what you want join the crowd.
