Tips for Whale Watching with Trinity Eco-Tours

Whale watching with us is a little bit different, but a whole lot better. Here are some pointers for you before we go on this wonderful experience together.

Bring the Right Gear

Bring a waterproof camera that you can hang from your neck, whales may only surface for a moment so you don’t want to be fiddling with your camera.

Be in Good Company

Choose the right people to take you out to sea. You want people who’ll make your experience more fun and memorable.

Don’t Take Motion Sickness Pills

If you’re prone to sea sickness and have to take Dramamine or other similar motion sickness pills, you can leave those at home for this trip. We do not have the back and forth “swaying” as you would if you were in a sailboat, for example.

You Will Wear a Full Flotation Suit

These suits are survival suits, designed to keep you warm and afloat if you happen to fall in the water. These suits will also keep you warm in the cooler weather. So, it’s a win-win situation!

This is hands down the best whale watching experience I have ever been on. In addition to seeing whales and puffins, Skipper Bob was exceptional. Great guide, full of stories and information and history of the region and an eagle-eye for whales! Thanks for an exceptional experience!

Highly recommend the lodge and tours! We spent 3 nights at Trinity Eco Lodge. Warmly welcomed each morning by Shannon who helped us arrange some tours as well as gave us pointers on places of interest in the surrounding area. Shannon even told us we could warm up some of her homemade beef stew for dinner as we would be coming back late from our ATV trip!

We had a wonderful experience doing the whale watching tour! We were thrilled to see two different kinds of whales and a very rare bird - the stellar sea eagle, as well as stunning coastal views. Skipper Steve + Bob were very friendly and knowledgeable. Would absolutely recommend this tour!

We had an excellent tour with Trinity Eco-Tours. We got to see whales, a variety of seabirds including the beautiful Atlantic puffins! But the highlight for me was finally being able to see the gorgeous Steller's sea eagle. She's currently the rarest bird in all of North America, and certainly amazing to see! Definitely worth a trip out with Trinity Eco-tours. The boat was comfortable, and the staff are all incredible! You will not be disappointed.

I did a 3-hour boat tour and it was incredible! They are a great team and you'll be in good hands if you book a tour with them. Detailed information was provided prior to boarding and engagement with the travellers was regular. Although we didn't see any whales (it was off-season), we did see puffins and eagles. Of course, the scenic beauty was breathtaking - you are out in the ocean where you experience the beauty and the force of nature.

We had a great time on our sea kayaking tour. Darrell was a fun, informative and educational guide who made us feel super comfortable paddling on the ocean. We came in September at the end of the season so didn’t see any whales or puffins, but Darrell still did a great job telling us facts about local history and the environment and taking photos for us. The hot coffee and muffins at the end were a nice treat too. We’d love to come again when the icebergs and whales are in town!
