All tours check in at the SpringTide office at least 40 minutes prior to departure (1119 Wharf Street). We’ll discuss the current protocol guidelines, get your tour group organized and escort you to the appropriate departure dock. Then, off you go on your adventure!

Marine Wildlife Tours usually operate from November 1 through March 31, lasting 3 hours round trip. The 2021/2022 Winter tours will only be available on selected dates on our large ocean cruiser.  We expect zodiac tours to be available depending on appropriate wind and weather conditions.

Please contact us by email or telephone to see if there is a tour offered during your visit to Victoria during these months.

Operating our tours during this year of interrupted travel during the world wide pandemic has been challenging and has had a huge effect on us all. We hope you stay safe and healthy.
