”West Coast Aquatic Safaris were the only company that had big enough boats, experienced enough crew and safe enough operations for us to take out our 2-year-old and 5-months-old children.Trip Advisor User
”A fabulous day with the Grizzly Bears! It was such a thrill to be really close to a beautiful grizzly and her cubs, but we felt very safe and well looked after. Congratulations to the staff for their knowledge and concern for the bears and their clients. A day I will always treasure.TripAdvisor Member
