Description

Sooke Whale Watching is a family owned and operated environmentally-friendly, year-round marine and eco-adventure touring company, serving Sooke, Victoria, San Juan Islands, Jordan River, and Port Renfrew.

Sooke Whale Watching will take you on an exhilarating West Coast marine adventure that will thrill your senses and leave you with a deep appreciation for the enchanting creatures that inhabit our local waters. Offering the perfect balance of excitement, safety and education, our experienced, knowledgeable crew will take you on an open water excursion lasting up to 3 hours in length, exploring Vancouver Island’s South Western Shores.

We depart from Salty Towers Ocean Front Cottages on Sooke Harbour aboard our 12-passenger 500 H.P. high-speed Zodiac.  We will explore the Strait of Juan de Fuca and Southern Vancouver Island’s dramatic, windswept coastline on our quest to encounter Resident & Transient Killer Whales (Orcas); Humpbacks, Minke, & Gray Whales as well as White Sided Dolphins.

But that’s not all; we will also introduce you to a variety of smaller marine mammals and sea birds. You will view Harbor Seals, Steller and California Sea Lions, all in their natural environments. Bird enthusiasts are treated to bald eagles in action, hunting and nesting, in addition to many species of other native marine birds.

From the invigorating salt-filled ocean air to the ever-changing seascapes, our marine and eco-adventure tours are sure to become the most memorable part of your visit to beautiful Sooke.
