Whale & Bear Watching
Wildlife, on land or in the sea, is only experienced through the lens of a television camera for most people, but here on the coast you can have your own up close and personal interactions with some of nature’s superstars. We have a great selection of tours and cruises to give you that once in a lifetime experience.
The raw power of a black bear is evident as it nonchalantly turns over 100 lb rocks in its search for food on the shoreline. Wolves are also an important part of our biosphere and they too can, on occasion, be glimpsed as they furtively go about their daily food gathering.
On the sea, you can experience seals, sea lions, dolphins, and of course whales. We are fortunate enough to have transient pods of Orcas passing through, plus Grey and Humpback whales live within our waters or migrate through on their way to their summer feeding grounds in the north. To have a 20, 30, or even a 50-foot whale near your boat is a life event that has to be experienced to be fully appreciated.
We encourage you to connect with the nature at our doorstep here in Tofino & Ucluelet. Grab your camera and binoculars & jump on board for a true West Coast adventure.
