Campbell River: 6-Hour Whale Watching Boat Tour

2. Campbell River: 6-Hour Whale Watching Boat Tour

Discover an abundance of wildlife in the waters of the Salish Sea, Discovery Passage, and Johnstone Strait. Encounter Humpback Whales, Killer Whales, Pacific White-Sided Dolphins, Bears, Steller Sea Lions, and so much more, on a 6-hour Whale Watching Tour, onboard either a Zodiac or Covered vessel with onboard washrooms. Begin at the Floathouse with a brief explanation of the wildlife you may encounter, a map of the general area of travel, and safety information. Travel to see a variety of wildlife in a well maintained, 12 passenger vessel. Enjoy a nature interpretation by your certified Naturalist Guide and Captain. Eat an onshore lunch of freshly made wraps, snacks of homemade baked goods and granola bars, and beverages such as coffee, hot chocolate, tea, and water. Don't forget to bring your camera and binoculars (tripods not recommended). Take in the calm and beautiful scenery while traveling through the narrow passages between the Discovery Islands and into Johnstone Strait, rather than into the open Pacific Ocean. Hear the vocalizations of Orca or Humpback Whales through the onboard Hydrophones (underwater microphones) if those opportunities arise (Orca and Humpback Whales do not communicate all day).

If you're lucky, you will be greeted by larger creatures, such as humpbacks, orcas and pacific white-sided dolphins! The tour runs for approximately 3 hours, and will return back to the dock at Brown's Bay Marina. The Narrows Floating Restaurant is a great place to finish off your afternoon, for anyone who wants to sit and enjoy a bite to eat and a refreshing drink!

Unfortunately we did not see the bears because of the heat but the guide was very well prepared and really tried, even extending the visit time, to give us the opportunity to see them. But both on the outward and return journeys we saw whales that gave us great emotions with their jumps out of the water. A snack and lunch is given, it would be correct to have a vegan or at least vegetarian option. I would add that the company has a very nice CO2 offsetting program, which is much appreciated.
