With tours running daily from early spring and into fall, selecting a three hour tour is a terrific way to experience Canada’s west coast from the sea. It’s a great way to discover and view the amazing marine life that thrives in this part of 🌊 Pacific Ocean.

Of course, the main highlight is an opportunity to view in person, the beautiful black and white Orca’s or more commonly referred to as; Killer Whales, that thrive in this part of the world.

But there’s so much more to see and experience on this exciting boat tour, as you will soon discover on this fun adventure!

Your whale watching tour leaves right from Victoria’s beautiful and very scenic downtown ⚓ Inner Harbor. This harbor is located right in the heart of the city and in the most popular tourist zone as well.

Because many tourists arriving to the city may require shuttle service to the dock, transportation is not problem. Orca Spirit Adventures offers complimentary 🚌 shuttle service to and from most downtown area hotels, and taking you right to the dock.

This service is provided both before and after your whale watching tour. 🙂

What makes this company so special, is that every whale watching journey out to sea is led by a certified marine naturalist.

Not only will you have a great time on your tour, but you will also learn about the area’s natural 🐙 marine wildlife. Your captain will explain in great detail, the different species you may come upon throughout your tour.

High Speed Zodiac Whale Watching Vessel

Orca Spirit Adventures Zodiac

Because our daughter was able to join us on this tour and that my wife and I also enjoy 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. He’s a naturalist who has an obvious passion for the environment and marine life.

Tristan’s goal in leading visitors on these eco-adventure tours, is to inform and educate everyone on just how important it is for us to protect and preserve our ecosystem.

This, so we may continue to enjoy and experience what nature and the sea has to offer for years to come.

Killer Whale Watching – Victoria BC

Following a Pod of Orca Whales

Whale Watching Tour Victoria BC

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!

Your captain may head in any direction out from the inner harbor, on your particular tour. They are in constant contact with others by radio, for recent 🐳 whale sightings in a particular area.


Our destination was off to an area known as the; Haro Strait. This borders the San Juan Islands, which is just across a short distance away in the State of Washington, USA.

A pod of Orca’s was seen, so 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 small outer islands. Along the way, making brief scenic stops to view and enjoy other marine life in the area.

We happened upon a group of sea lions and seals swimming about and laying on the rocks sunning themselves. (Shown in the picture above.)

As you get closer back towards downtown Victoria, it’s a great view of the city and its shoreline along the way. Dotted with beautiful luxurious waterfront homes, the scenery on this boat was incredible!

All in all, it’s a great way to spend 3 hours on the water, enjoying the marine life and the fantastic views of the city from the sea.
