Zodiac Marine Wildlife Adventures

April 17, 2012

The Zodiac is possibly the most fun you can have when on a Marine Wildlife tour. Prince of Whales yellow Zodiacs are 12 passenger, super safe wild rides. We explore the Strait of Juan de Fuca, Haro Strait, San Juan Islands and Southern Vancouver Islands amazing coastline on our quest to encounter Orca (Killer Whales), Humpback Whales, Porpoises, Minke Whales, Gray Whales, Dolphins, Seals and Sea Lions. Our skippers are safety first as they blast out of the harbour and into sparkling ocean waters that surround southern Vancouver Island. You will be bundled up in a full body floatation cruiser suit, and every seat has an excellent view. All Prince of Whales Skippers are trained Naturalists, and have a vast knowledge of our waters. We adhere to the “Whale Wise” regulations in Canadian and US waters https://princeofwhales.com/about-us/blog/be-whale-wise/ always being responsible around our marine wildlife. Our number one Skipper Mark “Mallard” spends time with DFO on large vessels doing research in the Pacific 2-3 times a year, and he helps/researches with Ken Balcombe who is the senior scientist at the Centre for Whale Research on Southern Residents Orca, out of San Juan Island, Washington. Mark has also contributed a great deal of Knowledge, photos on the Transient Orca populations that travel this area. He has contributed to the Transient, and Southern Resident catalogues, as well has been instrumental in creating a catalogue of the Humpback Whales that have been seen in these waters over the past 10 yrs. Not only have we done whale watching in these waters for years, but we have also performed some rescues of people difficulty, in Kayaks, fishing boats, Para gliders, and wind surfers that land in the water and need to be rescued.

The Yellow Zodiacs of Prince of Whales provide the safest ride, most fun, best viewing of marine wildlife, come out and have a blast !!
