Jamie's Whale and Bear Sightings Guarantee

 

It is our greatest hope that all of our guests enjoy the time they spend with us. We do our absolute best to deliver experiences on the water that leave you inspired, entertained, and educated about the diverse ecosystems of Clayoquot and Barkley Sounds in Tofino and Ucluelet. A combination of local knowledge, experience, education, and luck allows our guests great opportunities to view wildlife. 

Jamie’s Whaling Station enjoys a sightings success rate of over 95% for both whale watching and bear watching tours throughout our season. Unfortunately, due to the inherent nature of viewing wild animals in their natural habitat, we cannot guarantee with 100% certainty that there will be sightings on every tour. To enhance the expected value that each of our guests deserve, we offer our lifetime, non-expiring Jamie’s Sightings Guarantee:

If you join us on a Whale Watching tour and do not see a whale, we will provide you with a Raincheck ticket, allowing you to join us on another tour - free of charge!

No Expiry!

Our Rainchecks never expire. They can be used on the same day, in the same year, or in 20 years from the original departure. We operate several tours each day providing multiple opportunities for you to join us again, if not successful on your first trip.

If you do not think you’ll be returning to our area it is possible to exchange your raincheck for an in-house discount on gift shop items. Discount is dependent on the booking details.

If you have any questions regarding the Raincheck policy please speak to any of our team members and we will do our very best to help!
