Full description
The thrill of being on the open water is no match for the excitement of spotting or hearing a whale in its natural habitat. Our amenity-laden motor yacht will bring you out to sea for an unforgettable afternoon whale watching tour. Led by expert marine biologists, you will learn about our Pacific Coast whales, marine mammals and birds, as well as about the exciting history of British Columbia’s rocky coast. While you keep watch for orcas and humpback whales, you may also spot seals, porpoises and a wide variety of marine birds. The Marauder IV Ocean Cruiser is one of British Columbia’s biggest whale-watching vessels and offers both open and closed viewing decks with 360-degree views. Feel safe with COVID friendly policies and reduced passenger counts on every trip.

Excellent experience.

My husband, I, and three children (16-10) went on the trip. We all had a fantastic time. We were told that we saw an “unusual” amount of humpback whales. We saw multiple ones at one time. We saw over a dozen. The marine biologist and ecologist were very helpful and informative throughout the entire trip. We all enjoyed hearing from them. We also saw two bald eagles, seals, an otter, and a couple elephant seals. It was amazing.
