We are Wild 4 Whales! Eagle Wing Tours is Victoria, BC's 1st multiple award winning whale watching tour company. Guaranteed Whales & guaranteed adventure with the most thrilling, environmentally responsible, sustainable, professional, comfortable, and safe marine adventure tour company on Vancouver Island.

Don't take our word for it: we have been rated as the #1 whale watching tour company in Victoria on Trip Advisor since 2007.

As passionate stewards of a world renowned marine environment, we are motivated to provide our guests with more than just "a look at the whales". Eagle Wing Tours was Canada's first 100% carbon neutral whale watching tour company and the only one to support 1% For the Planet.

You will be treated to attentive service by dedicated professionals who have spent their lives learning the intricacies of the local ecosystem. This locally owned and family operated marine adventure eco-tourism company offers the only sustainable, premium experience for travellers demanding more.

We realize that most of our guests have traveled great distances at high cost to experience what we have the privilege of doing daily. We respect, and ultimately are grateful for this, and so with every departure we go above and beyond - maximizing guest satisfaction, overall comfort, and delivering the "WOW" factor!- at the center of the world's highest concentration of Killer whales (orca, or Blackfish) and other whale (cetacean) species in the Salish Sea, such as Humpback whales, Gray whales, and Minke whales.

Our mission to you, our customer!

Eagle Wing's mission is to work with purpose and passion on behalf of all wildlife in the Salish Sea, encouraging our guests to become more involved in the education and conservation of a sustainable, healthy, and more balanced marine eco-system...

Inspiring the conservation of our marine environment, with a thrill!

Many thanks to the crew and especially Sidney, (hope I spelled that right!). She was so knowledgable and seemed almost as excited as we were when a whale was spotted!

Our family had a super time with Eagle Wing Whale Watching Tours this weekend and I would highly recommend booking with this locally run company. We went out on the large 4 Ever Wild catamaran, which we were extremely grateful for as it was rather chilly out there. But inside the boat we could keep warm, especially with the additional...

This was a fantastic experience. The boat was clean and comfortable. The staff were friendly and super knowledgeable. I learned a ton about the local wildlife from them. The captain knew exactly where to go and how to maneuver the boat to maximize viewing angles. We saw sea lions, seals, bald eagles and a ton of Orcas. This is an... More

Beautiful, fast boat gets you quickly to whale watching areas, and there are many around Victoria. Also sea lions, and humpbacks are relatively new here. Excellent captains and guides.

We took some visiting family from England out on this tour and had an amazing experience. Not only did we see various pods of orcas but we also saw various humpbacks. The guide was passionate about sea life and provided us with lots of interesting facts. Definitely highly recommended.

Eagle Wing Whale Watching Tours was great value for money. Viewing wildlife is a bit of a lucky dip and if you're serious about having an awesome orca experience, one tour may not satisfy you. Easy fix - book more. Although we had to travel to the San Juan Islands to see transient orcas, I well appreciate the effort the... More
