Campbell River Whale Watching and Adventure Tours is a key player in the Vancouver Island region. Many years of experience have allowed the company to expand and to look for new ways to engage with guests. Campbell River Whale Watching is dedicated to providing their guests with exciting experiences while at the same time committing to responsible wildlife viewing practices as an active member of the North Island Marine Mammal Stewardship Association. Each vessel is equipped with specifically designed underwater microphones enabling guests to listen to vocalizations of the Orcas. New and well-maintained engines exceed current Environmental Protection Agency standards.
Ever since the beginning of our work in the Toba Valley, Campbell River Whale Watching has been at our side with their expertise in the region for transport to the Toba Valley.
As tour operator for wildlife sightings, Campbell River Whale Watching relies on spectacular landscape and intact habitats to operate its business. That is why the Canadian company has decided to say Thank You to nature for the great experiences it makes possible on their tours. Since 2018, Campbell River Whale Watching compensates entirely their business’ impact on nature, expressed in CO2 emissions, by protecting temperate rainforest in British Columbia. For every guest going on a Whale Watching tour or Grizzly Bear trip, 1m2 of rainforest is protected forever by the company, and an even larger area will be preserved with the voluntary donations nature-loving costumers add to this. The protection of an area at least 1.5 times as large as needed to balance out emissions further marks a generous assumption of responsibility for habitat and biodiversity protection, and therefore sustainability in general.
The conservation areas at the Toba River are prime spawning grounds for salmon as well as habitat for grizzlies and black bears. By preserving the salmon population, the basis of life for whales, grizzlies and other animals that costumers come to see is protected.
This way, the conservation of rainforest in BC is tangibly traceable and directly connected to their costumers’ experience.
