Prince of Whales
We want to share the majesty of our marine life with you—but it’s more than that. We’re ardent stewards of the sea, conservationists who have placed orcas and humpback whales on the same pedestal as your experience since our humble beginnings.
So, when you’re on the water with us, you’ll feel the pulse of passion that flows through each of us. You’ll learn why we love the Salish Sea and these whales—and you may just step ashore a bit more passionate about protecting our marine life, too.
Our most popular Victoria adventure is a 3+ hour fully-guided whale watching & wildlife viewing tour departing at 12:30 from Victoria’s inner harbour aboard Salish Sea Eclipse – a high-speed, luxury, custom-built catamaran.
Experience the majesty of the Salish Sea and its wildlife, from whales surfacing in unison to bald eagles soaring overhead. Cut through the Strait of Juan de Fuca’s currents in search of orcas and humpback whales, and listen to our marine mammal experts bring the animals stories to life (while you stay warm, dry and hydrated in its heated cabin, of course!) The quintessential whale watching experience for every adventurer.
Did you know? Bald eagles mate for life, like wolves (we have those, too!)
