    What to Expect
    Experience the world’s most beautiful coastline on a 2.5 hour marine wildlife tour from Victoria, British Columbia, and immerse yourself in the majestic beauty of the Pacific Northwest. Juan de Fuca and Haro Strait are renowned for their ample wildlife, including animals such as Steller and California sea lions, humpback whales, sea and river otters, Minke whales, harbor seals and many marine birds to name a few.

    You will travel on-board an open-top Zodiac boat to race across the seas. Helping to protect the environment, the Zodiacs are powered by eco-friendly Yamaha 4-stroke outboards renowned for their ultra-low emissions and quiet operating levels. Modeled after fast-response coast guard rescue vessels, the zodiacs combine speed with stability, cruising at 25 to 35 knots. They are also equipped with well-padded bench seats and cushioned backrests for added comfort.

    Loved it. 3 hours on a small boat that takes 12 people max. Although you feel like the Michelin Man after donning the safety suit, it’s worth it for the exhilarating & speedy ride through the Pacific to see whales & other wildlife. Our guide was fabulous & really took the time
