Johnstone Strait Expedition Reviews

The trip was perfect, beyond all expectations more enjoyable than anything else I have
ever done before...

Heather Hopkins, July 26 Johnstone Strait Expedition

"Thank you for such an incredible adventure. The guides were perfect, the food, the whales and more whales. First class from start to finish. See you again next summer....... the guides said the Nuchatlitz is a must place to sea kayak."

John and Rita Parker

"We just got back from our Vancouver Island vacation and we just had to write you. The trip we took with you on August 14-18 was the highlight of our honeymoon. Everything was just perfect, and thanks for the little gift you gave us, a very nice touch. Say hi to Rick and Breanne for us."

Lynne and Alan Fosberg

"I did not expect to see so many whales. Even if I did not see a single whale I still would have ranked this the best trip I have ever been on. The whales just topped it off."
