Whale Watching Tours in Victoria
The waters around Vancouver Island make up one of the very best places in the world to spot orcas, humpback whales, gray whales, and minke whales. Here's everything you need to know to see them for yourself on a whale watching tour in Victoria.

When to Go
Although pods of resident orcas live in the local waters year round, you'll have the highest chance (around 85%) of spotting these majestic mammals and other whale species between late March and October.

What You'll See
Whales love the Pacific Northwest—especially the waters around Vancouver Island near Victoria. Visitors have a high probability of seeing humpback whales, gray whales, orcas, and minke whales, all in addition to other wildlife such as seals, bald eagles, and porpoises.

How to Go
Travelers to Victoria have a number of whale watching tour options that offer the chance to view whales in their natural habitat. Whether you choose a naturalist-led, marine ecology-themed boat cruise, a tour that combines whale watching with a trip to Butchart Gardens, or a seaplane tour that drops you off at a ship for whale watching, you're sure to remember your experience. Find even more options below.
