Overview

Add an extra thrill to your Victoria whale-watching adventure with this wildlife cruise aboard a fast-moving, inflatable Zodiac boat. 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. An expert naturalist guide will help point out passing species and share insight into the amazing aquatic world of the northern Pacific.
  • Whale-watching adventure by Zodiac from Victoria
  • Fly across the open sea, feeling the spray of the water and getting as close to the wildlife as possible
  • Spot orcas, gray whales, humpback whales and minke whales, depending on the time of year
  • See other wildlife like sea lions, elephant seals and bald eagles
  • Learn about the environment and the whales from an expert naturalist guide
  • Choose from five departure times throughout the day

Great Trip and Tour Guide

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.

Marty, our tour guide was amazing-friendly, fun, knowledgeable and very experienced boater. The suits they give really helped keep us warm and dry. The boat ride is really fun, you go so fast and then you stop and see amazing whales! Would do this over and over again!

This was the best excursion of the whole cruise. My kids loved it. We found a taxi super easily, they line up at the terminal and found our way. On the way back we walked to the terminal. Everyone from the check in the boat was amazing.

A very well organised, small and most importantly successful whale watching tour. One suggestion if you are short sit along the edges or a tall person could block your view.

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
