Great Pacific Adventures offers whale watching tours from the spectacular Inner Harbour of Victoria, BC.
Choose your whale watching adventure in a 45 ft ocean cruiser, which offers both inside and outside seating, OR in an exhilarating ridged-hulled zodiac. Either boat offers an exceptional whale watching experience.
Each tour is 3 hours long and has a certified naturalist or biologist on board who provide educational commentary on all members of our unique marine community. Each boat is outfitted with a hydrophone to hear the whales vocalize.
Daily departures commence from the Inner Harbour of downtown Victoria, BC on beautiful Vancouver Island. Our sales office is conveniently located at 950 Wharf Street (on the docks at Harbour Air Seaplanes).
From Vancouver, we also offer harbour to harbour seaplane, coach and ferry transportation packages for whale-watching in Victoria through our friendly representatives at Harbour Air and West Coast Air in Vancouver. Please visit our Vancouver Whale Watching Tours page for more info.
