We emphasize science and conservation while maintaining a fun and professional atmosphere.
Join our professional Naturalists for a 3 to 5 hour whale watching tour, starting in the picturesque West Coast fishing village of historic Steveston and traveling through the spectacular Gulf and San Juan Islands. Our extensive whale spotting network, has given us a 90% sighting success rate. While we journey to find the Orcas (Killer Whales), youíll have the opportunity to see a diverse marine ecosystem, including bow riding Dallís porpoises, sea lions, bald eagles, and seals.
WHY BOOK WITH US?
ZODIACSOur vessels are expedition style Zodiacs specifically designed for marine mammal viewing. They travel over the top of the water instead of pounding through it increasing passenger comfort and safety as well as reducing the chance of seasickness. Our Explorathor (open) and Express (semi-covered) vessels use water jets which are extremely safe for marine mammals. All three of our ocean going vessels are equipped with washrooms.
The first whale watching company to operate from the mainland. This year we will celebrate 13 years of viewing wild mammals in their natural habitat.
