This three-hour coastal excursion is an exhilarating round trip of 50-80 kilometres in search of orcas, humpback whales, minke whales, grey whales, porpoises, harbour seals and other marine wildlife. You will ride aboard a 14-metre ocean cruiser which enables you to have a safe and intimate whale watching experience in the comfort of a covered vessel. Information on wildlife, landscapes, and answers for any questions are provided by certified marine biologists and naturalists. This excursion is suitable for all ages.
Victoria whale watching routes vary depending on whale sightings and weather. A typical route takes us along Victoria’s scenic waterfront to Oak Bay and the Chain Islets, where we pause to watch harbour seals and seabirds. From there, we often head east to San Juan Island, or north along the Saanich Peninsula.
