Canada Whale Watching

Spotting Whales

Canada Whale Watching is a Popular Tourist Activity
Canada has two long coastlines and plenty of places to go whale watching. British Columbia has the largest population of Orcas (Killer Whales) in the world so Canada whale watching tours in BC are a favourite for fans of the incredible Killer Whale.

Canada whale watching on the west coast starts in March with gray whales who pass by BC and Vancouver Island on their migration path from the Bering Sea to the Baja Peninsula in California. Stubbs Island BC Whale Watching Tours run daily from early May to October. In addition to Orcas, during the west coast Canada whale watching season you may also see Humpback whales, Minke whales, dolphins and porpoises as well as sea lions, bald eagles and more.

Canada Whale Watching Tours are Safe & Fun
All Stubbs Island Canada Whale Watching Tours originate in historic Telegraph Cove on the northeastern coast of Vancouver Island. Our captains always begin each Canada whale watching tour with a safety orientation before you head out on our whale watching vessels, all Transport Canada inspected and approved. Your Canada whale watching trip with Stubbs Island will take place aboard the 18 meter aluminum cruiser ‘Lukwa’ or the 9.5 meter ‘Eagle XXXI’. A Stubbs Island Canada Whale Watching trip is approximately 3.5 hours on the water viewing whales, wildlife and birds.
