Our Spring & Summer Season Whale Watching / Marine Wildlife Tours (May to October) are 3 hours in length and are the ideal seasons to see our resident Orca Whales in all their glory. The Juan de Fuca and Haro Straits are home three resident orca (killer whales) pods. Nearly 100 whales belong to these three pods, providing you ample opportunity to have your own close encounter of the deep. During peak whale watching months, our success rate for sighting orcas is often 100%.

The Fall and Winter Season Marine and Wildlife Tours (Nov to April) are two hours in length and offer an exhilarating boat ride to "Race Rocks" to view 100's of California and Stellar Sea Lions. There is also a chance of sighting Humpback and Gray Whales, and the possibility for sighting Orcas still exists as the Southern Resident Orcas are not migratory whales. Other marine wildlife you can see includes porpoise, sea lions, seals, otter and a host of marine birds like Cormorants and Bald Eagles.
