Jamie's Whale and Bear - Raincheck 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 Sound in Tofino, and Barkley Sound in 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. However, 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 Raincheck Guarantee:


Whales

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!

 

Guests using a raincheck for Whale Watching tours from Tofino or Ucluelet:

  • Are able to join tours aboard our large cruiser vessels, or our open zodiac-style vessels, from either location
  • Are on a stand-by basis, dependent on Transport Canada capacity requirements and mandatory staffing levels.
  • Are able to confirm seats 60 minutes prior to departure

Bears

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

 

Guests using a raincheck for Bear Watching tours from Tofino or Ucluelet:

  • Are able to join tours aboard our panoramic-view cruiser from Tofino, or an open zodiac-style vessel from Ucluelet, or Tofino when available 
  • Are on a stand-by basis, dependent on Transport Canada capacity requirements and mandatory staffing levels
  • Are able to confirm seats 60 minutes prior to departure

No Expiry!

Our raincheck tickets NEVER expire. They can be used on the same day, in the same year, or in 25 years from your original departure. We operate several tours each day providing opportunities for you to join us again, if not successful on your first trip. It is important to keep in mind that our tours are often sold out in peak season - mid-June to mid-September - which will decrease the ability to use the raincheck ticket if your time is limited.

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 our Raincheck Guarantee, please speak to any of our team members and we will do our very best to help!
