*+ Conservation Fee & Tax

Fully-guided whale watching & marine wildlife tour. Opportunity to observe different species of whales in the wild, sea birds and other marine wildlife. Guided by 3-4 Transport Canada certified marine naturalists.
Year-round Whale Sighting Guarantee. In the unlikely case that we do not see whales, you can join us on another whale watching tour for free.
Highlights & Inclusions
Epic sunset views. Your adventure will begin approximately two hours before the sun goes down and will be an experience to remember!
The perfect viewing platform and the only one of its kind on British Columbia coast. This 95 passenger catamaran was engineered and built in Canada with the safety of our beloved marine wildlife and our guests as priority number one.
Complementary tea, coffee & hot chocolate on board. Light snacks (chips, cookies and chocolate bars) available for purchase.
From harbour seals to humpback whales, you never know what you’ll encounter in our coastal waters. If you’re lucky, you’ll glimpse whales surfacing in the sea as the sun’s golden hues blanket the coastline’s red-bark arbutus trees. Listen to our marine mammal experts from an elevated open-air deck or stay warm, dry and hydrated in the heated cabin. We time this adventure to finish as the sun sets, showing off our west coast beauty in its best light—they don’t call it “Super, Natural British Columbia” for nothing.
Did you know? The humpback whale population, once near extinction, is now growing by as much as 8% per year.
What To Bring
It gets cold out on the water (trust us!), so we recommend windbreaker jackets, sweaters, long pants, and closed-toe shoes. It’s also a good idea to bring sunglasses, sunscreen, a tight-fitting hat, a camera to capture some memorable moments and, above all, your sense of adventure!
Onboard snacks are available for purchase with CAD cash only (no credit/debit cards accepted) but please feel free to bring your own snacks if you wish.
