Whale Watching Tours in tofino, bc

They dive, spout, breach, spyhop and lobtail! These are all typical whale maneuvers you may expect to see off British Columbia’s west coast. Board our 30’ rigid hull inflatable or one of our high speed covered family cruisers to enjoy some of the most spectacular scenery in the world! Because much of this coast is uninhabited and accessible only by boat or floatplane……it remains a pristine wilderness.  This rich and nutrient filled ocean is loaded with a variety of marine wildlife including many different species of whales as well as harbour seals and sealions, sea otters, porpoises and a myriad of birdlife including puffins, blue herons and bald eagles.
