Cruiser Whale Watching Tour in Tofino

Enjoy the scenic views along the stunning coastline of Clayoquot Sound on our way to the common feeding areas of whales. Learn about the area’s fascinating ecosystems with our engaging naturalists while experiencing first-hand the natural characteristics of a wide variety of wildlife.

On our whale watching tours, we commonly see Grey Whales. Beginning in late February, these whales start passing by our coastline as they migrate towards Alaska. Starting in May, we see our resident Grey Whales settle into their feeding grounds around Tofino & Clayoquot Sound. These are the whales we most commonly see on our whale watching tours.

In addition to Grey Whales, the whales that we may also see on our tours include Transient (Bigg’s) Killer Whales and Humpback Whales.

When we’re not watching whales spouting, feeding, spy-hopping, and breaching we’re spending time with other wildlife. On our whale watching tours, it is also common to see Sea Lions, Sea Otters, Seals, Eagles, and more!

Whale watching tour

What an incredible, once-in-a-lifetime experience! Our guides were very knowledgeable, professional and passionate about the ocean and the whales! We were very impressed with how much they knew and how they respected the ocean and its creatures. After an hour and a half of searching for whales (quite honestly I almost gave up) we finally saw some humpback whales and grey whale. And if that wasn’t enough we spent almost half an hour watching a beautiful humpback whale breach over and over again! We couldn’t have asked for a better experience. You guys have officially ruined whale watching for us because you have set the bar so high on our first whale watching trip ever! Thank you for everything!

Amazing Adventure Whale Watching!

We had an amazing adventure whale watching that was made even better by our wonderful guides! Their knowledge and genuine passion for whales made the trip a once-in-a-lifetime experience. We saw grey whales, sea lions, and an ocean sunfish that was really neat. However, the highlight of our excursion was the Humpback Whale that seemed to put on an acrobatic performance meant just for us! Thank you!!

A whale of a time

We had a few days in Tofino as we travelled to Canada on holiday from the UK. We took the whaling trip on our second day. We were in a fairly large group but there was plenty of room on the boat and the crew were always on hand with information when needed, all showing good knowledge. We got to see at least two grey whales, a pod of Orca killer whales, sea lions, sea otters and a variety of birds. A great trip, we were very satisfied. Highly recommended.
