Whale Watching

Majestic mammals and marine wildlife abound in the waters surrounding Victoria, including the orca, gray, humpback, and minke whales. Other aquatic neighbours include sea lions, seals, porpoise and many marine birds. There are three orca pods totalling over 80 whales in Victoria’s waters alone. Cruise with local certified naturalists and experts for a guided marine adventure to discover, observe and learn about these enchanting creatures up-close. Most voyages include a trip to Race Rocks Ecological Reserve, the southernmost part of Vancouver Island (and Canada) on the Pacific coast. The reserve is Canada’s first Marine Protected Area and home to an abundance of rare marine life.
