What wildlife will I see on this tour?
Every day and every tour throughout our seasons are unique. This means the wildlife sightings will vary from tour-to-tour. It’s possible you will see some of the following wildlife: whales, bears, seals, sea otters, sea lions, eagles & other birds, porpoises and more! You will also be treated to the stunning landscapes of Clayoquot Sound throughout the duration of your tour which can often make you feel like you’re living in a dream.
What if I don’t see wildlife on my tour?
Unlike our dedicated whale or bear watching tours, we do not offer a raincheck ticket if you do not see wildlife for this tour. While you may not see a whale or bear, we should be able to show you other wildlife throughout Clayoquot Sound’s diverse ecosystem.
What should I bring on my tour?
We recommend that you dress in warm layered clothing for all our tours. Also recommended are a camera, gloves, hat, binoculars, and most importantly – your sense of adventure!
Do I need to worry about seasickness?
This tour will primarily travel to the sheltered inlets around Clayoquot Sound which mean you should not have to worry about seasickness.
Our Clayoquot Sound Nature Tour has a 24-hour cancellation policy. If any cancellations are received, including a reduction in the passenger numbers, within 24 hours of the tour departure refunds will not be issued. Any cancellations outside of 24-hours will receive a 100% refund.
