Embark on a 3-4 hour whale watching cruise that will focus on the Southern Resident Orca Whales, Transient Orca Whales, Humpback Whales, Grey Whales and Minke Whales. You will also encounter Sea Lions, Bald Eagles, Harbor Seals, Dalls and Harbor Porpoise as well as a myriad of marine birds on your whale watching eco-tour. Description
Make your way to the historic seaside village of Cowichan Bay, 45 minutes north of Victoria and 45 minutes south of Nanaimo. Meet up with passionate guides who love sharing Vancouver Island’s marine ecosystem, then get fitted with a warm flotation suit, gloves, a hat, goggles, and sunglasses. It's also a good idea to wear a warm sweater or jacket and comfortable pants, and to bring sunscreen and a camera.
There's rich and abundant marine wildlife found along the shores of southern Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands, and you'll watch for orca whales, humpback whales, grey whales, minke whales, harbor porpoises, Dall's porpoises, sea lions, bald eagles, and a variety of bird species.
The landscape of southern Vancouver Island is just as remarkable, and the route passes rock bluffs, tidal pools, and sandy beaches before returning to the original departure point.Highlights
