pWith over 21 years of experience, the crew at SpringTide Whale Watching know all about whales and the best places to find them around Victoria BC. We love to share our enthusiasm and will work hard to make sure your whale watching experience is the best it can be!ppSpringTide Whale Watchingnbspis a family affair. We ndash Dan and Joanne ndash have been the proud operators of this whale watching business for twenty years. Our daughters nbsphave been integral parts of SpringTidersquos operation, especially during the summer months, when they take a breather from their post-secondary studies.ppYou might be wondering how we ended up in the world of whale watching. Well, just a few short years ago (or so it seems), we both were working in Vancouver, in demanding careers in multinational corporations. With his CPA designation, Dan was helping large companies put together deals and Joanne was steering sales at a large computer company. By the time baby number two came along, however, it hit us: this isnrsquot the pace we want for our lives!ppBecause we had always loved the island and had both grown up on and around the water, we decided Victoria was the right place to raise a family. When we made the move over, we brought our 36rsquo boat,nbspSpringTide, with us.ppAfter wersquod been here for a while, we realized there was a niche for sport fishing that wasnrsquot being filled in Victoria. An avid fisherman himself, Dan launched a sport fishing business, taking sportsmen and corporate types out onSpringTidenbspand bringing them back with jaw-dropping catches. As whale watching gained in popularity during the early 90s (thanks to Free Willy!), we shifted over to offering our guests outstanding wildlife viewing experiences. We havenrsquot gone far from our roots, though we still run charters for sport fishing. Captain Dan is widely known for his fishing acumen (We think it must be all those years growing up in Campbell River).ppThe thing we love the most about this business is that we get to help peoplersquos dreams come true. Every single thing we do as an organization is geared toward the pleasure and enjoyment people derive from our tours. Folks travel from far and wide to come to Vancouver Island in the hopes of seeing the whales, and we consider it a privilege to be able to take them to the places where they can do just that. We hope yoursquoll join us, too.p
