Scenic Whale Watching tours departing Victoria

Get up close and personal with the locals – British Columbia’s marine wildlife – on one of SpringTide’s scenic whale watching tours! You’ll tour the pristine waters around Victoria, Southern Vancouver Island and the Gulf Island with Orcas (Killer Whales), Humpback Whales, Minke Whales, and sometimes even Grey Whales breaching next to you. You’ll also get a glimpse of our diverse marine wildlife including Dolphins, Porpoise, Harbour Seals, Bald Eagles, River Otters, Steller and California Sea Lions. And during your tour, our onboard naturalist will share the ecology of the beautiful environment that surrounds you.

When you book a whale watching tour with us, you enjoy your cruise on the 61’ Marauder IV where there is indoor and outdoor seating, and our social distancing practices leave lots of room to move around the boat as you explore!

Our whale watching tours depart from Victoria’s Inner Harbour, so whether you like crisp morning air, the afternoon sunshine, or sunset cruising, we have something for you!

Book now and experience whale watching in Victoria first hand.
