Whale Watching Adventures (3 hours)
Take a ride on the wild side and experience the supernatural beauty of the
Pacific Northwest! For the ultimate West Coast adventure, join us on our
thrilling 3-hour whale tours. Departing downtown daily at 10:00 a.m. and 2:00
p.m. from Fisherman’s Wharf in Victoria’s Inner Harbour, this cruise into the
“Pacific Playground” will cover up to 80 miles in our quest for whales,
porpoises, dolphins, seals, sea lions, otters, eagles and an exceptional array
of marine birds. Focusing primarily upon the activities of the Orcas, we also
encounter Minke, gray and humpback whales in the area.
Although J-Clan is resident to the waters surrounding Vancouver Island,
they travel extensively - frequently ranging 90 miles or more per day. Unlike
the meat-eating transients, our 3 resident pods consume fish and are best seen
from May to October as they follow schools of salmon through scenic,
island-strewn channels. Intimately guided by Captain Ron, you’ll be introduced
to their wild world as these powerful predators journey past seabird rookeries
and isolated pinniped haul-out sites. Listen to their musical underwater
vocalizations on our quadraphonic hydrophone and be forever changed by the
degree of civilization so evident in these gentle giants.

Captain Ron knows all the wildlife places in these waters
While there ( in Victoria) we recently went whale watching (May
15th, 2007) with Sea King Adventures and saw approx. 25 whales ('J' pod) it
was amazing. The company was small and very personable and they went out of
their way (extra time) to make sure we saw the whales.

Just Spent Yesterday with Seaking Adventures whale watching company
and can't say enough about how wonderful our experience was. Ron the owner and
captain went out of his way to make sure we saw J pod. Other companies turned
back as the whales were going too far out, but not us! Ron turned up the motor
and away we went. We were the only boat company that did it. We saw 25 orcas -
it was amazing! Sea King leaves from Fisherman's Wharf, not the Inner Harbor
but I highly recommend that you go with them. So much more personable ( and it
is nice to support the 'little guy') and the boat is one you can move
around on, you are not sitting on a bench seat where you can't move to take
the perfect photo etc. Oh ya the boat has a toilet for emergencies
too!!! I am still on my high from teh perfect day whale watching, I want to
tell eveyone about it. posted to tripadvisor.com by
