You’ll take a deep dive into the stories and science that surround the magnificent orca, spirit of BC’s wild coast and apex predator of all oceans. Follow the currents of ecological activism, popular culture and Indigenous beliefs to gain a new appreciation of these sophisticated animals, long feared in Western cultures as “killer whales.” Discover the complex social structure of orca society and reflect on the surprising consequences of captivity.
Over which the Royal BC Museum peers, the Salish Sea is the historical “coast zero” for both the market in captive orcas and the surge in scientific research about orcas.
You’ll learn which orca populations are thriving and which are at risk. You’ll surface with a new understanding of how orcas and humans are inextricably connected: we are all part of nature, not apart from nature.
Any one of our Victoria adventures qualifies for this offer. Choose between our Catamaran, Zodiac or nightly Sunset Tours.
Experience the majesty of the Salish Sea and its wildlife, from whales surfacing in unison to bald eagles soaring overhead. Cut through the Strait of Juan de Fuca’s currents searching for orcas and humpback whales, and listen to our marine mammal experts bring the animals’ stories to life. We’ve got adventures for every adventurer, from the warm and dry comfort of our luxury catamarans to the zippy zodiac to our romantic sunset tours. Best of all, you’ll have the added security of our Whale Sighting Guarantee.
This tour includes:
Admission to the BC Museum, including “Orcas: Our Shared Future” (about 2-4 hours). Available to book any date subject to Royal BC Museum availability.
Whale and wildlife watching tour (3+ hours).
