Whale Watching & Bear Watching Combination

Journey to the open ocean in search of Grey Whales, Humpbacks, and Killer Whales before tucking into calm waters to spend time with black bears while they forage along the coast for food.

Landscape
Journey through First Nations traditional territories: choose scenic cruising through the calm rainforested inlets and thousands of islands that make up Clayoquot and Barkley Sound, or experience the rugged wave-swept outer coast; the full expanse of the Pacific Ocean on one side and the scenic coastal mountains of Vancouver Island on the other.

Natural & Human History
Visit local historical sites and take a glimpse at the unique natural history of the area; peek into old-growth rainforests, find clues from the last Ice Age or float amongst magnificent kelp forests.

Wildlife & Ecosystems
Each of these different landscapes is home to various species of wildlife; from black bears foraging along the inlet shorelines, grey whales feeding in coastal bays, sea lions resting between fishing trips, seals, sea otters and dozens of species of birds.
