Creating Safe Spaces

Campbell River Whale Watching is committed to fostering a culture of respect and inclusivity in every aspect of our operations. Our goal is to ensure that our facilities, services, and interactions are accessible and affirming for everyone. 

Our Involvement with North Island Pride

Every June, Campbell River Whale Watching hosts an annual PRIDE cruise in conjunction with North Island Pride celebrations. This special event not only underscores our commitment to inclusivity but also serves as a fundraiser, with all proceeds supporting North Island Pride initiatives. We also provide paid volunteers for North Island Pride events for their annual Pride celebrations in Campbell River. Keep an eye on our social media channels for announcements about our next PRIDE cruise and join us in celebrating diversity and unity within our community.

We are a proud Access2 venue
