Full description
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.
