Get closer to the water — and the whales — on a wet and wild ride through the Strait of Juan de Fuca. Hang on to your hat and keep a sharp eye out for native marine life such as humpback and gray whales, orcas, sea lions and harbor seals.

Why Travelers Choose This Tour
This tour offers a faster whale-watching experience than a tour by traditional boat.
Even though we had fog we were able to find breaks in the fog and see many sea animals and of course whales. The tour guide was great and letting us know what was going on as we progressed through the tour.
1 hour on the zodiac, 30min for seeing 5 killer whales in company of 15 other whale watch companies wanting to see the same 5 killer whales, then another hour on the zodiac going back.. During the trip there was no information given, except once and that was concerning an island where a man reincarnated into a wolf.
Got to see orca pods which was class. The captain was interesting and fun. Very knowledgeable and fair tour length. Possibly only small negative is they should ask for a donation at the end of you wish too. Not in front of everyone before you get your boarding passes or welcoming you
Ian, the zodiac pilot was fab, very knowledgeable. We saw loads of whale action from Mum and her calf. Excellent trip. Ian also played around in the wake of another boat on the way out to see the whales so a bit of a thrill ride too, if only we could have done more of that too. If I'm in the area again I would definitely go out again in a Zodiac with SpringTide. Thanks
