You’re here to see the whales. And we’re here to help you do it!

You want Whales? We’ve got Whales. The local Orcas (Killer Whales), along with Humpback; Gray; and Minke Whales, cruise our waters throughout the year, giving us great success rates. In fact, everywhere you turn, the photographic opportunities in Vancouver Island’s marine ecosystem are spectacular. Keep your camera clicking as our on-board naturalist shares the ecology of the beautiful environment that surrounds you.

Our Whale Watching tours are 3 hours in length, and depart multiple times a day. And, you can choose which one of our purpose built boats suit you best. Departing from Vicotria's inner harbour, you can join us on the Marauder IV, our 61ft MotorYacht, or for a more adventurous ride hop aboard one of our high speed open Zodiacs. A tip for you – it’s best to allow some extra time for your tour, because sometimes we stay a little longer to give you the best trip possible!

Whale of a time as a Naturalist

My interest and love in the ocean began in Massachusetts. It was there, as a young girl, that I saw my first Humpback Whale. Right then, I knew I wanted to devote my life to marine conservation. Coming from a …
