31 Reviews

  • Location: Vancouver, Canada
  • Duration: Varies (approx.)
  • Tour code: 3020_VAN7

Fly from Vancouver to Victoria on a 35-minute flight by seaplane and search for Orcas on a whale watching cruise on Haro Strait. Be kind to the environment with the most environmentally friendly form of transport between Vancouver and the mainland - carbon offset levy included! This is a small group tour with a maximum of 14 passengers.

Orcas frequent the waters of Haro Strait between March and October to feed on the salmon passing through on their migratory route. See these magnificent marine animals in their natural environment for an experience no aquarium can rival. The underwater kelp forests of the Pacific Northwest ocean ecosystem also provide a rich food source for other wildlife such as seals, seabirds and sea-otters, all of which may be spotted during your tour.

This tour is seasonal, operating from March to October.

I surprised my wife with a Journey that upheld everything and more.
Firstly the Staff at the seaplane terminal were impeccable and they also allowed us earlier flight due to availability. The flight over to Victoria faultless. Victoria Spectacular only wish we had of organised an overnight stay.
Whale watching Breath taking and the staff again were The Best. Thank you Corey for the passion of your job it is infectious.
Thank you again for a wonderful memory never to be forgotten.

Loved it - all went seamlessly , just make sure you contact Harbour air early and carry a photo ID ...

But overall 5 Star, would recommend to anyone who wants to go whale watching and if you do get the chance grab the co-pilots seat often offered to passengers on full flights
