Christmas came early for a few local non-profits thanks to sizable cash donations courtesy of Jamie's Whaling Station. This year, Jamie's donated over $80,000 back into the community to ocean-minded organizations like Pacific Wildlife Foundation, Raincoast Education Society (RES), Surfrider Pacific Rim Foundation, Clayoquot Clean Up, Ucluelet Aquarium, Pacific Rim Marine Search and Rescue Society, and Strawberry Isle Marine Research. The donated funds were collected through the company's "Research, Rescue and Education" fee, a $3 surcharge that is tacked on to each passengers' adventure tour fares.
