Cruiser Bear Watching Tours in Tofino

Starting in April once the Black Bears start to emerge from their winter dens, we depart daily at low tide to travel through Browning Pass to the rocky coastline of Fortune Channel as the bears roam out of the rainforest and onto the shores to forage for food. Abundant in Clayoquot Sound, Black Bears are often seen turning massive rocks in search of crabs and clams.

Cruising through these scenic passageways allows for many opportunities to view other wildlife like Seals, Porpoises, Eagles, Herons and more. Throughout your tour, our informative and personable crew will keep you entertained with interesting and fun facts about wildlife and the surrounding area.

Fantastic bear watching tour

We enjoyed a fantastic bear watching tour with seven bears and even a baby bear. Very good and experienced captain with good eyes to spot bears. Very well cared for also safety-wise. Very recommendable, would love to come again.

Great Bear Watching Trip

Despite the wet weather, our crew did a great job of making it a great trip to see some of BC’s wildlife. We saw two black bears, many bald eagles, a harbour seal and a pod of harbour porpoises. A real bonus for a bear watching trip. Excellent service from start to finish. Knowledgeable and friendly staff both on and off the boat. Highly recommended. If we are back in Tofino, we will definitely go on another Jamies’s adventure.

Bear Tour

We went on the Bear Watching Tour with Jamie’s. The large boat had plenty of room to move around, the crew were great, full of knowledge and we were lucky enough to view eight black bears, hunting for crabs and other food on the various shorelines. The tour was environmentally sensitive, the boat pulling up close enough to give us a great view, but not close enough to disturb the bears. Highly recommended.
