Know More about this tour

Friendly guest service agents will check-in you and your party 30 minutes before departure, which is when you will be told about the current weather conditions and animal reports/sightings. One of the experienced and passionate captains will then prepare you for your west coast adventure by suiting you with one of the high end survival suits (if required) and safety brief on the conditions and your vessel (safety is always first!) There are many potential marine species to encounter on your 3-4 hour trip.

The priority on every tour is to interact with Orca (Killer Whales), along with as many other cetacean (whale) species. Your crew achieves this by going the distance required to interact with them, which some days can be further away. This is one of the main reasons for the custom made the vessels - to ensure you'll cover long distances quickly, comfortably and safely. All of the captains are highly trained and internationally experienced when it comes to marine ecosystems, which ensures the west coast adventure is highly educational as well as exhilarating.

In order to be prepared for your tour, please bring an extra layer of clothing, along with some food and water all vessels have plenty space on them for storing such items. Please make sure you check into the office location at least 30 minutes prior to your trip departure.

    Holly was an excellent guide and very knowledgeable. We were able to see several whales and followed two humpbacks as they put on a real show for us. Excellent use of our time and money.

    We saw 3 humpback whales and 4 transient orca’s. It was excellent. We also saw bald eagles and 3 kinds of seals. A day never to forget. Markwas a great tour guide.

    This was one of the most amazing days of my life. We were collected from our hotel on time, checked in quickly by a very friendly and helpful young lady. Keegan gave us a most memorable morning packed so full of information about the wildlife. He answered all our questions very patiently and made it very clear how much he enjoys his job. We were lucky enough to see a seal enjoying his lunch of a rock fish, around 20 orcas, harbour porpoise and a humpback whale. It was a beautiful day and the water was very calm. The ride in the zodiac was fantastic. The whole package was perfect, I can not recommend the team enough. We are hoping to return to Victoria next year and do it all again. Thank you all for making our whale watching experience so unforgettable. Helen, Chris and Becca Cross.

    Absolutely brilliant. Captain Gordon went all out to make sure we saw whales and we did. Saw a fin, a minke, humpbacks and orcas. Amazing trip.
