Ucluelet's best whale watching tours
Ucluelet's best whale watching

Had an incredible and magical day whale watching with Cameron Ocean Adventures last weekend — honestly, still buzzing thinking about it.

The boat ride itself was super enjoyable — we saw sea lions and went around some of the Broken Group Islands. And then we saw *the whale*. At first we were all just thrilled seeing it come up for air and swimming around — and then out of nowhere it did a big jump in front of our boat, and also some big tail flaps (5-6 times). It was absolutely breathtaking.

It’s easy for me to recommend Cameron for whale watching — the boat is a bit smaller (I’ve been on other whale watching tours where the boat is bigger and packed with many people) so it is more intimate and you can walk around (never feels crowded) and switch up your vantage point. There were 6 of us on the boat that day. The crew members on board were super knowledgeable about the area and the wildlife (thanks for answering all my questions!) and I was also happy to learn about the indigenous names of islands and mountains. On our way back, the boat also stopped to get some debris/garbage out of the ocean that was floating. It’s clear that the team has a deep respect for community and territory and take great care to offer a great experience for guests — I was so happy to be guided by them.

I hope to go out with them again — the experience was absolutely incredible and I felt in such good hands!

A couple friends and I went on a whale watching tour and had an AMAZING time! We really lucked out coming across a group of gray whales feeding, and our captain Lynette and naturalist Rachel were super informative and fun. I really liked that there were binoculars available for everyone to use, lots of space to get a good view of whales, otters, seals, sea lions, birds etc, and a washroom in the cabin of the boat. Highly recommend!

​Awesome family experience!
An amazing trip with Caleb and Lynette! Absolutely beautiful scenery, and so much wildlife! The trip was family friendly with a warm cabin as well as washroom on board, and lots of space for viewing out on the deck. We were lucky enough to see orcas and humpbacks in one trip! Highly recommended!


Incredible Adventure!
My family and friends recently had the pleasure of taking a tour. We saw so much wildlife including whales!! Our guide went out of their way to provide us with as much fun and excitement as possible all the while sharing stories, facts and history of the beautiful islands and ocean life. Could not have had a better experience!

Caleb is a great fishing guide but he is also an excellent wedding guide! He took 4 land locked dreamers and found them the most perfect spot to exchange their vows..in privacy and perfection! The boat was SO comfortable and spacious, Caleb and his friend were awesome guides and the ‘extra touches’ provided were stellar.

Thank you so much Caleb. Can’t wait to do it again!

We took our English in-laws out on a trip with Caleb and it was an unforgettable experience and the highlight of their Canadian vacation!

Caleb’s boat is very comfortable and clean and his local knowledge and charm are unbeatable!!

Thank you so much Caleb!!!

Our day with Cameron Ocean Adventures was fabulous! The crew was professional, kind and knowledgeable.

From the moment we stepped on the boat, we felt safe and cared for. We were blown away by the plethora of content the crew shared with us.

We learned about sea otters, sea lions and grey whales as well as countless facts about the surrounding communities and wildlife.

There was ample seating around the boat and an onboard washroom. If you are planning an ocean tour while visiting Ucluelet, I HIGHLY recommend Cameron Ocean Adventures!

Your Ucluelet Whale Watching Adventure Awaits

Board our 43' family cruiser to enjoy some of the most spectacular scenery in the world! Because much of this coast is uninhabited and accessible only by boat or floatplane… it remains a pristine wilderness.  This rich and nutrient filled ocean is loaded with a variety of marine wildlife including many different species of whales as well as harbour seals and sealions, sea otters, porpoises and a myriad of birdlife including oyster catchers, blue herons and bald eagles.

Thanks to mother nature, her ever changing cycles always prove to be unique. In Barkley Sound and the Ucluelet area, we often encounter humpback whales, summer resident gray whales and the occasional pod of killer whales. Our whale watching season usually starts in mid March and lasts until the end of September/early October. We offer morning and afternoon departures. Please check this link “book now” for specific daily departure times on our covered boat.
