Overview
Discover the diverse wildlife for which British Columbia is famous on this 3-hour marine wildlife tour in Victoria. Hop aboard your boat at Fisherman’s Wharf and cruise toward the Haro Straight with your guide. With your wildlife identification kit to hand, watch the skies for native birdlife and keep an eye on the waves for curious seals, sea lions and porpoises. Lucky wildlife spotters may even see killer whales, gray whales, humpback whales and minke whales in the harbor’s deep waters, and hear them communicating via the on-board hydrophone!
What to Expect
This tour offers comprehensive wildlife viewing opportunities so that guests may experience as much as possible. The tours are generally shorter because of the seasonally cooler – while still mild – temperatures. Common sightings including wintering birds, seals, sea lions and playful porpoises.
Though whale sightings are not guaranteed, if your captain and crew get word that whales are in the area, they'll often extend the tour at no extra charge. You have a 50-70% chance of seeing whales.
Take advantage of the onboard wildlife identification kits, and learn about the region's wildlife from your naturalist guide. If you spot a whale, use the hydrophone to hear them!
Please note: From Nov1st  to April 30th, boat types and times may vary based on weather and tour numbers.
 Please call ahead if you would like to arrange hotel pickup
