Haro Strait and Juan de Fuca Strait are the two most popular whale watching places in British Columbia. Both regions are close to BC's capital, the City of Victoria, on Vancouver Island, and the state of Washington. The orcas are the main drawing card, but people can also expect to see gray whales and humpbacks. Other marine mammals that are often sighted in this area are; Dall's porpoises, Pacific white-side dolphins, California sea lions, harbour porpoises, Steller's sea lions and harbour seals. There are many guided whale watching charters based in Victoria and area. Book your tour well in advance; join the throngs who come to see our city of flowers, to enjoy afternoon tea and to go whale watching.

Whale Watching Adventures in British Columbia

The coastline of Canada's most western province, is a maze of straits, sounds, and fjords, hundreds of islands and inlets. Scenery is unsurpassed, as the blue ocean meets the green forests covering the mountains, which reach for the sky. Because much of this coast is uninhabited and accessible only by boat or floatplane . . . it remains a pristine wilderness. The rich and nutrient filled waters are home to a great variety of marine wildlife.
