Tour Information

Tour Details


Take the typical whale-watching cruise up a notch with a ride on a Zodiac, an inflatable boat that moves fast across the water, giving you a thrill as you look for whales that live in the waters around Vancouver Island. Spot orcas, humpback whales, gray whales and minke whales, as well as other marine life like seals and sea lions. Plus, enjoy views of the Victoria waterfront and the island’s beautiful scenery. An expert guide will make sure you enjoy a safe, fun and informative experience.

Know More about this tour

Your tour starts at the Victoria wharf, where youll check in and hop aboard your Zodiac for your whale-watching adventure. In contrast to the smoother ride of a large motor yacht, a Zodiac boat travels fast and puts you nearer to the water, providing you with closer views of whales and other wildlife (and getting you a bit wet, but thats all part of the fun).

Sit back and hold on tight as your skipper zooms across the Strait of Juan de Fuca, the body of water that separates Vancouver Island from the United States. Watch for whales like humpbacks, orcas, minke whales and gray whales, as well as other marine mammals like sea lions, elephant seals and harbor seals. And look up once in a while to spot bald eagles soaring through the sky and sea birds scanning the water to find food.

During the ride, your naturalist guide provides expert commentary about the ecosystem of the Pacific while you learn about the behavior and biology of the whales and other sea life. Your tour ends with a return to the wharf.

  • Amazing trip got up close to the whales had a great day for it would highly recommend :D

  • A very well organised, small and most importantly successful whale watching tour.
    One suggestion if you are short sit along the edges or a tall person could block your view.

  • Got to see orca pods which was class. The captain was interesting and fun. Very knowledgeable and fair tour length. Possibly only small negative is they should ask for a donation at the end of you wish too. Not in front of everyone before you get your boarding passes or welcoming you

  • Fantastic! Fabulous! Best tour EVER. Not for the faint-hearted, but if you are adventurous and not prone to motion sickness, DO THIS.

  • Every part of this tour was awesome !From the ladies that checked us is to our driver and ofcourse seeing multiple orcas that swam right under our boat. Highly recommend this tour

  • The staff did a great job taking care of all us.

  • Ian, the zodiac pilot was fab, very knowledgeable. We saw loads of whale action from Mum and her calf. Excellent trip. Ian also played around in the wake of another boat on the way out to see the whales so a bit of a thrill ride too, if only we could have done more of that too. If I'm in the area again I would definitely go out again in a Zodiac with SpringTide. Thanks

  • Wonderful tour

  • Fantastic experience. The crew and all staff members at the local tour company were great and couldn't do enough to help. A highly recommended company and tour provider.

  • Another item off my bucket list - we saw a family of orcas!!! Timely, well-organized, and wonderful staff and guide!!!
