The MV Tenacious III is our primary vessel here in Campbell River. The T3 as we like to call her, is a 30 passenger vessel with seating inside (heated) as well as outside, walk-around decks, a spacious washroom and she's equipped with a hydrophone (underwater microphone) to listen to the whales! We might be a little biased, but she is one of the most comfortable passenger vessels around! Her hull is 40 feet (12 meters) in length and she was launched in June 2009.
The MV Kuluta spends most of its time in Telegraph Cove at our "sister" company Stubbs Island Whale Watching during July and August, but comes down to Campbell River when the Grizzly season starts at the beginning of September. "Kuluta" comes from the Kwakwala First Nations language and means "porpoise". She is a 42 passenger vessel with inside (heated) and outside seating, very large viewing decks, a spacious washroom, surface piercing drives (do not emit noise in to the ocean environment) and is equipped with a hydrophone (underwater microphone) to listen to the whales! Her hull is 40 feet (12 meters) in length and she was launched in 2007.
The MV Lukwa is the primary boat in Telegraph Cove at Stubbs Island Whale Watching for the summer season, but comes south to Campbell River in the fall and is available for charters throughout the winter and early spring. The name Lukwa also comes from the Kwakwala First Nations language and means "a place in the forest." This very spacious vessel can comfortably accommodate up to 49 passengers. Her hull is 60 feet (18 metres) in length and she has heated salons, 2 on-board washrooms, multiple viewing decks and of course a hydrophone (underwater microphone) to listen to the amazing vocalizations of the whales and other marine mammals! The Lukwa was launched in 1989 and continues to be one of the finest vessels on the coast!
