It's unclear why whales jump and splash on the surface of the ocean. It could be to get attention from potential mates, or a way to lose the parasites on their backs. But it is also possible that the whales are simply having fun.
From the vantage point of a 65-foot cruiser or an open zodiac-style whale-watching vessel, guests of Jamie's Whaling Station can observe grey and humpback whales in their natural environment, while forming their own hypotheses about their mystifying behaviour.
In addition to whale-watching trips, Jamie's leads bear-watching tours, tours to Hot Springs Cove, kayaking adventures, group hiking, water taxi trips to hiking trails, cultural canoe tours, and sunset cruises to find out where the sun really goes at night. A portion of proceeds from all tours supports local wildlife research and rescue programs. At Hot Springs Cove, hikers can look forward to hot pools among the rocks to relax in while looking over the ocean.
