Owner description: Whale watching, wildlife tours and sea kayaking tours located in the beautiful seaside town of Sidney, British Columbia on Vancouver Island. Our advantages include; calm protected water and the closest departure point to the Resident Killer whale routes meaning more whale time and an average of 30 minutes less travel time then Vancouver or Victoria. We are also at the gateway to the magical Gulf Islands National Park Reserve, less then 5 minutes off our dock and your among one of the nicest cruising grounds on the planet. Family owned and operated for over 15 years, come share our passion for the beautiful region called the Salish Sea.

“Killer Whales on Victoria Island”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2007

If you won't to go on a incredible trip to see magnificent killer whales and the magic of just being out on the vast ocean, I recommend you take a trip with Emerald Sea Adventures. In 2006, I was leaving the island of Victoria to head home to Saskatchewan and figured I better see some Killer whales while in the area or I would be regreting it. I went on the trip with Jeff of Emerald Sea Adventures, saw whales and other animals and the beauty of the shores and area, a fantastic trip.

If your in the area or a good reason to go to the area is an unforgetable trip with Emerald Sea Adventures and bring your camcorder or camera.

“Brilliant Whale watching”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2006

We went whale watching one morning in October. The skipper Jeff was an ex Canadian coastguard, who had an intimate knowledge on the islands and whales habitat. We signed up for a three hour trip but it ended up nearer four as we had to divert a considerable distance from our original course to intercept the orcas.All in all we cocered some 85 nautical miles weaving between the islands in both Canadian and US waters. Jeff was determined that we should see whales, although that cant always be guaranteed! The whales were spectacular and we saw thewm very close up but without disturbing them. This was the undoubted highlight of a 3week trip to Canada. For the trip we were provided with very clean, warm, water and wind-proof all-in-one suits which were very comfortable.
An experience not to be missed
