High Speed Zodiac Whale Watching Vessel
Having our daughter joining us on this tour and always enjoying new adventures and excitement, we selected the high speed zodiac tour! It was a beautiful sunny summer morning and we were led by our captain Tristan, a naturalist, who has an obvious passion for the environment and marine life.
His goal in leading visitors on these eco-adventure tours, is to inform and educate others on how important it is for us to protect and preserve our ecosystem, so we may continue to enjoy and experience what nature and the sea has to offer.

Heading Out in Search of Orca Whales
Following a Pod of Orca Whales
Half the fun on the zodiac boats is being out in the open air and having the ability to get where you need to go fast! Our captain may head in any direction from the inner harbour having heard of recent whale sightings in a particular area. Our destination was off to an area known as Haro Strait, which borders the San Juan Islands in the State of Washington. A pod of Orca’s was seen and we made fast time to catch a glimpse of them!
When we arrived, we weren’t disappointed and were able to follow along with them for quite some time!
Sea Lions Sunning on the Rocks
After enjoying the view, Tristan then slowly began making our way back from these islands, making brief scenic stops along the way to enjoy other marine life, such as a group of sea lions and seals swimming about and laying on the rocks sunning themselves seen in the picture above.
