humpbacks come and go.
If you are really lucky you may see some killer whales but it is not likely.
In 2016 and my friends from a church group
in Vancouver had a interesting encounter from a
mama gray whale and her pup. I think they thought i was another whale,
my boat has a big keel that may look like a fin and its very quite
My tour is not expensive, I
charge $50 per hour
and That is not per person.
This gets you me, the boat and a experience you will not forget.
Its important you
understand why so cheap.
The boat hull is a sail boat hull,
this makes it very safe, very stable
and very comfortable. It also means my boat is
This is a good thing , it means you do not pound over the waves
normal whale watching boat with 300 horses behind you.
You glide comfortably over the waves with 15 horses pushing you
and safely, this way you get to see the view, not see the blur.
The fuel and expenses are very minimal so I am passing the saving
on to you.
I prefer to take a max of 5 people, but extra kids
can squeeze in.
Now that you know my boat how bout I tell you bout me.
I am not a new comer to Bamfield, I
moved here when I was 8 years old and
my parents had no choice but to follow me.
that was over 44 years ago.
I have been exploring the history of the area and know the forest very
There is one thing Bamfield has and that
is history, Lots of history.
That is why the pirate tour
is really a history tour.
Johnson said it well in her book
"legends of Vancouver" when she described
the ancient rock art " is it the handy craft of man, or a
whim of nature"
|There was a
very unique discovery made this year
in the pacific rim national park.
It is a rock face that
appears to be peaking out from the forest.
Follow the link to the news reports
about the rock face that was discovered.
rock art is not new to me, I have been trying to get the
people to come see it for 25 years
and it has been the main part of my tours for over 10 years.
If you wish to see the extent of the art we have in barkly

If you want to go see the rock face that has created such a
buzz ill take you there,
but be prepared to
see the rest of the rock art that the powers that be say is
The eagles are funny , when they see me coming
they fly out and greet me then follow me around
and will come right beside the boat and show there

you want to make

Its very impressive and well worth the trip.
Watch for the videoI will be posting soon.
The Pirate Ship
To find my boat make your way down to the
Bamfield Centennial Park
and go to the centennial park dock located at the boat launch.
When you see it remember,
its affordable and it's a pirate ship.
The boat shed at the end of the dock has the Bamfield fire boat in it.
My boat is parked beside it, just look for the giant raccoon .
If the boat is not there, I am out exploring the sound or fishing and can be
reached on my cell.
I do like to fish and fish seem
to like me and my boat.
If you want to fish, I can be persuaded to toss out a line or two,
I will say my boat is comfortable to fish from and my rates
are far less then most other boats.
To see me catching a fish watch
