Full description
Experience the world’s most beautiful coastline on a 3-hour marine wildlife tour from Victoria, British Columbia, and immerse yourself in the majestic beauty of the Pacific Northwest. Juan de Fuca and Haro Strait are renowned for their ample wildlife, including animals such as Steller and California sea lions, humpback whales, sea and river otters, Minke whales, harbor seals and many marine birds to name a few. You will travel on-board an open-top Zodiac boat to race across the seas. In a smaller, open style 12 passenger vessel, you can be on scene with the wildlife faster and get once in a lifetime exposure to the true west coast elements. Helping to protect the environment, the Zodiacs are powered by eco-friendly Yamaha 4-stroke outboards renowned for their ultra-low emissions and quiet operating levels. Modeled after fast-response coast guard rescue vessels, the zodiacs combine speed with stability, cruising at 25 to 35 knots. They are also equipped with well-padded bench seats and cushioned backrests for added comfort.

    As the event says it was a whale watching / wildlife excursion. It was not the right season for the big whales, but saw a lot and learned a lot from the great guide. All Corona guidelines were meticulously adhered to. Check in and the entire process went without any problems.

    Our tour guide led us through fog, dodged logs with skill and provided us with beautiful picture opportunity’s of orcas, an adventure I would do again. I took my 3 grandkids (8,9,11) and they loved this experience. Thank you.
