Full description
After meeting your skipper at the dock, get suited up in a cozy cruiser suit, ensuring your comfort and safety for the duration of the trip. This 3-hour whale-watching tour boasts sightings of just about everything there is to see, from wolves roaming nearby islands to groups of predatory transient orcas and breaching humpback calves. Your ride on one of the zipping Zodiac-style boats will be nearly as exciting as seeing the whales.  Each of the boats seats 12, and there are great views from every seat. Once out of the former fishing village of Telegraph Cove, you’ll have the opportunity to see a variety of species of sea life, including orcas, humpback whales, grey whales, minke whales, porpoises, dolphins, sea lions, elephant seals, otters, and bald eagles. Every tour is guided by a Transport Canada-approved skipper, who will provide information and commentary on all of the wildlife you see. If you don’t see a whale on your trip, you’ll be entitled to a free tour until you have a successful sighting.

Wirklich tolle Tour. Scotty als Guide war sehr gewissenhaft mit viel Wissen, dass er auch toll vermittelt hat. Es lohnt sich sich sehr warm anzuziehen, da es auf dem Wasser sehr kalt werden kann.

Wir hatten eine unfassbar tolle Tour und haben sehr viele Tiere gesehen. Unser Highlight - wunderschöne Buckelwale und unglaublich viele Delphine. Auch einen riesen Dank an unseren Guide, der sich unglaublich viel Mühe gegeben hat.
