  • The ranking of tours, activities, and experiences available on Tripadvisor is determined by several factors including the revenue generated by Tripadvisor from these bookings, the frequency of user clicks, and the volume and quality of customer reviews. Occasionally, newly listed offerings may be prioritized and appear higher in the list. The specific placement of these new listings may vary.
We perform checks on reviews.
Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    I was the only person for the morning booking this tour, thus I was able asking lots and lots of questions.
    Sam did a wundefull job taking the time explaining everything about the area and the different animals we saw (Seals, a blue heron, two black bears, Bald Eagles and various water birds).
    It was a great tour and I recommend it highly to get a close view to all the water animals.

    Loved it, besr wishes from Germany, Katharina

    This was a great tour. It was exactly what we wanted. Our guide, Shannon, was a great driver and tour guide. She picked us up at our hotel and we drove to Horseshoe Bay where we caught the ferry to Nanaimo. The scenery was spectacular. We stopped in Coombs to visit the market, eat lunch, photograph the goats on the roof, and eat delicious donuts. We continued on to Pacific Rim National Park (more spectacular scenery and good hiking.) We stayed in an impressive one-bedroom tourist apartment in Ucluelet. The next day we had breakfast at the Long Beach Resort where enjoyed the view of this amazing beach and got to watch a surf class. We toured Tofino, hiked the rainforest, and headed back to Vancouver. On the return trip, we stopped in Port Alberni for lunch. The donuts were so good, we stopped in Coombs again to buy more. This was an excellent two days.

    This excellent tour was led by Senan Magennis who was incredibly knowledgeable, engaging, caring, organised and was able to add a note of humour and sincerity throughout the rather long day. With time on both the bus and the ferry, interest was maintained throughout.
    Senan is an excellent driver and ensured the trip was smooth and well explained. His ability to provide highlights and talking points ensured a memorable day. He was always willing to engage in that extra mile.
    Butchart Gardens are simply amazing and Victoria captivating. Much to see and enjoy at both.
    Many thanks Senan

    Our experience was great. The photograph was super nice and made the experience very comfortable for us. I would recommend this service again and will hopefully do it again in the near future.

    This is a great trip and we highly recommend Cameron Ocean Adventures. The boat is very well equipped with safety devices and binoculars. Caleb (the boss) and Lynette (the skipper) are friendly, helpful and professional and Rachel (the wildlife expert) is both that and very knowledgeable about the wildlife on display. We saw a sea lion, white-tailed eagle, sea otter, seal, humpback whale and black bear on the shoreline, all because Lynette and Rachel knew exactly where to take us, and stayed beyond the time to head back because they were so eager for us to have the best possible experience. Add to that it was a warm, sunny day with a slight breeze but no choppy waves and we simply could not have asked for a better afternoon out on the water. Don't miss this trip!
