Whale Watching From Vancouver

Why Whale Watch From Vancouver?

Spend less time on the water and more time with the whales by selecting one of our Vancouver departure options. We offer several tours departing from Vancouver daily via Harbour Air Seaplanes. Fly from Vancouver harbour to downtown Victoria to join and exhilarating and educational whale watching adventure that focuses on the Southern Resident Killer Whale population. Being situated in Victoria on the southern tip of Vancouver Island, puts us right in the heart of finding Orcas and other whales in the wild!

Additional highlights include Seals, Sea Lions, Sea Birds and the spectacular vistas of southern Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands. Come for the afternoon or stay a few days!
