Our Whale Watching Tours . . .

Whale Sightings Vancouver Island

Our season starts in May, between the start of the season through to early/mid July we cruise through the Johnstone Strait, Blackfish Sound and the myriad of islands that make up the Broughton Archipelago. Travelling out into this remote wild area we focus on the diverse wildlife that lives, feeds and breeds in these nutrient rich waters, keeping an eye out for the humpback whales that are returning each year in increasing numbers.

From mid/late July through October, the waters between Vancouver Island and mainland British Columbia are home to the magnificent Orca (Killer Whales). The protected waters provide an ideal location to view and listen to orcas and other marine mammals as they feed, socialize and raise their young. Orca Whales - Killer Whales - Vancouver IslandEvery trip into this diverse natural environment is different. While orca are the primary viewing experience, humpback whales, Dalls porpoises and Pacific white-sided dolphins are regularly encountered and enjoyed. Harbour seals, Steller sea lions and occasionally California sea lions are viewed from our boats.

Our trips are approximately 3  hours long and suitable for all ages.

Our boats are comfortable, safe and designed for whale watching. In addition to the three viewing decks, spacious heated cabins and onboard washrooms, they are equipped with underwater microphones (hydrophones) so we can listen in on the squeaks, whistles and echolocation that allow orcas and dolphins the ability to communicate and locate their food. 
Our captain and naturalists are always willing to answer your questions and we provide a short on-board presentation about the whales and other marine mammals.
