You are not going to see whales from the Auke Bay kayak trips, they don't go out far enough. With your different interests, split up and do what is the most interest for each of you.

Karen-
I've got to disagree with you, but only partially. Depending on what time of year the cruiser is coming, both Orcas and Humpbacks are often found in Fritz Cove - just inside Spuhn Island where many of the Kayak tours work.

There are several all-day kayak tours that get quite far from Auke Bay as well... so it really depends on the circumstances and time of year.

To the OP... I too would recommend splitting up whenever the interests are truly different.
