Whale Watching Adventure (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.
