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.

Absolutely amazing... The seaplane to Victoria was fantastic, amazing views of Vancouver!
The whale watching trip was truly a trip of a lifetime. We saw a pod of orcas and a hump back whale! The guide was professional and very knowledgable.
Victoria itself is beautiful. Loads to see and lots of fine places to eat. Just wished we could have stayed longer! Would recommend this trip to anyone who is short of time, you won't be disappointed.
