Located in Alert Bay
Since 1986 we have been operating tours in the pristine waterways of Queen Charlotte Strait,
Johnstone Strait (Robson Bight), and Blackfish Sound, focusing on ethical, educational, and
meaningful experiences. This area is considered the best place to find Northern resident orca.
Large numbers of humpback whales also congregate here during the summer months. Other
marine mammals such as Biggs (transient) orca, minke whales, Pacific white-sided dolphins,
Dalls porpoises, Northern sea lions, and harbour seals are regularly sighted on tours.
Join us as we explore the pristine ocean, islands and passages on our 30 ft motorized vessel.
Every tour is different and we never know what (or who!) is around the corner. It is here where
the pace of life slows down and the simple beauty of the natural world can be witnessed.
We take 12 people maximum and pride ourselves in offering a more personalized approach to
whale watching. The small group sizes offer more intimacy with the wildlife and an opportunity
to interact with the skipper. The boat has a marine toilet onboard and provides enough space
that when stationary, guests are welcome to move about the boat to take photographs and
enjoy the dynamic scenery and wildlife. It is a perfect whale watching platform.
We operate daily from early June to the end of September, departing from Alert Bay and Alder
Bay. Each tour is approximately 3 to 3.5 hours long, dependent on conditions.
