Stubbs Island Owners - Heike Wieske, Geord Dunstan, and Roger McDonell

Stubbs Island Whale Watching Owners

Roger McDonell, Heike Wieske and Geord Dunstan have taken over the helm and pledged to carry on the vision that enabled Stubbs Island to become a company with a world-wide reputation for responsible wildlife viewing that has true educational merit.

Heike, Geord and Roger are well known in the tour industry on Vancouver Island. Heike and Geord are owners of Discovery Marine Safaris in Campbell River offering whale watching, wildlife and bear watching tours to the mid-island region. Roger is well known for his video and photo work promoting the region.

Born in Germany, Heike settled in the Campbell River area and worked in customer service for Crowne Isle Resort, Oak Bay Marine Group and Heriot Bay Inn before starting her own marine tour company.

A true Islander, Geord was born and raised in Campbell River. Spending many years as a fishing guide, Geord is most at home on the water.

As an avid photographer, Roger has spent a lot of time working on getting the right shot of his favourite subject, orcas and humpback whales. He is also one of our captains running the Lukwa, Kuluta or his specialty tour vessel, Gizmo.

The Office Team

Stubbs Office Crew

Our office is staffed by the friendliest people you will meet on Vancouver Island. They can even do backflips to make sure you have a great time while visiting Telegraph Cove. They answer the phones, stock the gift shop, checkin guests and water the planters out front. They are the best!
