Sea King Adventures adheres to a prescribed set of guidelines for operating vessels around Orca Whales and other marine wildlife. You can view these guidelines here.

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.

Orca Breaching

  • 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.

Customer Comments

  • 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.  posted by cool1 on Fodor's Travel Guides
  • 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 by Aussigirl333, Brisbane Australia May 23 2007

The Skipper's Corner

"The Legendary Captain" Ron King, Owner Operator of Sea King Adventures, has over 35 years of experience in the beautiful waters around Victoria and Vancouver Island. He is a certified Master Skipper with The distinction of being Victoria's most knowledgeable marine naturalist and conservationist .

Since starting SeaKing Adventures in 1995 Ron boasts a perfect safety record.

Born and raised in Victoria, Captain Ron has over 30 years of professional marine experience - including 25 years of commercial fishing and 11 years whale watching.

Like his father before him, going to sea is the only life he’s known. He began his career as a deckhand on board his father’s fishing boat "Five Kings II" at the tender age of 11. By the time he was 20, he owned and operated his first fishing vessel, "Aquarius".

 In 1995, with the commercial fishery in decline, he discovered his passion and purpose in whale watching and founded SeaKing Adventures Inc.

Because SeaKing Adventures  is Victoria’s only 100% family owned and operated marine tour company, Ron’s commitment to quality, safety and satisfaction is guaranteed! His central location on board the vessel allows him to provide Victoria’s most comprehensive fully narrated, totally interactive and personalized tours. Boasting a spotless safety record and sightings guarantee, Ron’s qualifications and experience combine to make him the city’s premier guide.

Our vessel can accommodate groups of 12 comfortably and is Canadian Coast Guard inspected annually. The soft riding boat has comfy leather seats, an onboard toilet and is equipped with all the latest in GPS, radar and communications apparatus. Safety survival suits are supplied for each passenger.

Passengers can all expect a exciting, educational, safe and comfortable tour of the area whales and wildlife.
