Det skal I lave

Onboard one of our open-air vessels "Cascadia" or "Keta", we'll introduce you to the Salish Sea ecosystem and wildlife as we cruise through the Gulf Islands archipelago in search of whales and other marine life. We'll share facts about the different types of whales that use the Salish Sea, including their natural history, and their roles in the marine food web.

Throughout your adventure, we'll be in touch with a network of boaters over VHF radio and will plan our route to maximize our wildlife viewing opportunities.

We'll spend a full hour viewing whales, and we'll provide real-time insights into their behaviours. Onboard catalogues are used to identify individual whales, and this data will be collected throughout the season and sent to the Centre for Whale Research, Keta Coastal Conservation, and the BC Cetacean Sightings Network.

After viewing whales, a granola bar snack will be provided.

We'll wrap up our whale watching experience with an educational talk on marine conservation which focuses on threats to BC orca, and conservation initiatives will be discussed.

We look forward to having you onboard!
Other things to note
We have a very high success rate finding whales (over 90%!), but if you're unlucky, your next trip is on us! Your free trip is non-transferable and never expires (it's good for life!).

This trip was worth every penny. We really enjoyed the drama of the sea in the open-air speedboat. It rained, it was sunny, it was windy, we got ocean water in our faces and felt the cool breeze. The wildlife was incredible and the naturalist had very captivating backstories for all of the wildlife. We were provided huge head-to-toe insulated suits with built-in lifejackets which helped with the cold winds. It was a wonderful time! Thanks!

The guide was really nice. I learned a lot about whales during the trip. It was also a very fun experience boarding a high speed boat.

This excursion did not disappoint. We did get to see two Humpback Whales and they gave us a special show. Spectacular. Ryan our Naturalist was amazing. From identifying the two whales from their tail markings to sharing all kinds of facts and stories. He loves his job and it’s obvious. Matthias our navigator rode the waves like a pro. Rough waters but lots of fun and we felt very safe the entire cruise.

Very good experience. It was nice to have a smaller group and we spent a significant amount of time with a pod of orcas. Definitely worth the money
