OUR WHALE WATCHING TOURS

Experience BC's most sustainable whale watching on an unforgettable day at sea aboard our open zodiac-style boat or our semi-covered vessel. We'll cruise through the Salish Sea ecosystem to see whales and other marine life in their natural habitat. Our coastal wilderness is home to killer whales, humpback whales, sea lions, porpoises, seals, eagles, and more!  Our 3-4 hour whale watching tours depart daily from downtown Nanaimo BC, April through October. Your captain and vessel are certified by Transport Canada, and your tour is professionally guided by a marine naturalist with an academic background in marine biology. Many of our guides are also whale researchers and are able to share the latest information on local marine conservation and research. Check out our vessels here, and our rates and schedule here.

OUR COMMITMENT TO CONSERVATION

Marine conservation is one of our top priorities. After all, our oceans are the largest ecosystems on the planet. That's why we're proud to be BC's first whale watching company to watch healthy growing populations of whales, EXCLUSIVELY. We avoid the endangered Southern Resident orca population, which are typically seen in the busier waters further south.

We're also proud to donate $2.00 for each seat sold to local marine conservation initiatives. Visit our Marine Research & Advocacy section to learn more about our commitment to conservation.
