Ron Bates, one of the Pacific Northwest’s leading orca researchers, may also be along for the ride! He conducts much of his research on these waters and can provide unique and interesting insight into the lives of these magnificent creatures.
Each trip's exact cruising route may differ depending on the day’s whale activity out on the water. The cruise often starts with visits to many of the small islands off the coast of Victoria. From there, learn about the surrounding ecosystems from your knowledgeable crew. Your guides may even pull kelp on board so you can witness where many of the food chains begin.
Cruises are conducted on boats designed specifically for whale watching and provide a smooth, fast and stable ride. Take advantage of the boat’s comfortable indoor and outdoor seating and enjoy spectacular panoramic views of the Pacific Northwest!
