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.
