Whale and Wildlife Discovery Tour

Join us on a Whale and Wildlife tour as we explore the waters of the Salish Sea, Discovery Passage, and Johnstone Strait. With an abundance of wildlife in our area, we are likely to encounter Humpback Whales, Killer Whales, Pacific White-Sided Dolphins, Bears, Steller Sea Lions, and so much more. While we can’t guarantee all of these animals on every tour, we take pride in each of our tours and take every opportunity to show our guests everything that is possible during their tour. Both 3 and 4 hour tours are available, with a variety of start times to fit your schedule.

You have two options for your adventure:

  • Our covered vessel with indoor seating and space outside for viewing. This boat is great for families and suitable for all ages.
  • Our zodiac style vessel for those who like being outdoors and want to feel the west coast wind through their hair.

Looking for something for just your family, friend group or work crew? We have private charter rates available!

The tour begins at the Floathouse with a brief explanation of the wildlife you may encounter, a map of the general area of travel, and safety information.

This tour runs 2-3 times a day with flexible start times.  Please see our “book now” button for specific departures.

On this tour you will enjoy:

  • Travelling to see a variety of nature and wildlife in a well maintained, 12 passenger vessel
  • Nature interpretation by your certified Naturalist Guide and Captain
  • A granola bar snack and water
  • Great opportunities to safely use cameras and binoculars (tripods not recommended)
  • The calm and beautiful scenery while travelling through the narrow passages between the Discovery Islands and into Johnstone Strait, rather than into the open Pacific Ocean.
  • The vocalizations of Orca or Humpback Whales through the onboard Hydrophones (underwater microphones) if those opportunities arise (Orca and Humpback Whales do not communicate all day).
