Whale & Wildlife Tour | Victoria

Go whale watching in Victoria on a 12-passenger boat that’s designed for seeking out whales and marine wildlife on Vancouver Island’s spectacular coast.

With a heated cabin, onboard bathrooms, and outdoor viewing decks, this whale-watching tour is a comfortable alternative to an open speedboat that still provides the maneuverability and personal experience of a small craft while searching for orcas, humpback whales, minke whales, seals, and more.

  • The flexible route is designed for maximum wildlife sightings
  • Choose from a wide range of departure times
  • Start the tour with a briefing by a marine naturalist
  • Convenient departure point on the Victoria waterfront


The route reflects recent wildlife activity, and your experienced marine guide/ Captain will steer you to the best places to see animals! During the 3 hour Ultimate Marine Whale and Wildlife Tour, we will travel through the waters of the Salish Sea in search of various whales & other marine life.

The Salish Sea includes the local waters around Southern Vancouver Island and is a rich marine environment that attracts multiple species of whales and other marine life!

Keep your camera ready, watching for orcas (killer whales), humpback whales, minke whales, gray whales, and dolphins, as well as both Dall’s and harbour porpoises. Harbour seals, Steller sea lions and California sea lions can be seen off Vancouver Island, and more than 127 species of marine birds can also be seen in the region.
