A short 2-hour drive northwest of Victoria takes you to true west coast wilderness. Adventure awaits in Port Renfrew as you explore the waters aboard a zodiac vessel between Southern Vancouver Island and the northernmost point of the Olympic Peninsula.

Take in the sights of the lighthouse at Carmanah and learn about the history of the West Coast Trail before heading out into open waters in search of humpback whales, orca (killer whales) and gray whales. Watch closely on the shoreline and in kelp beds for harbour seals and sea lions!

With tours lead by a passionate, knowledgeable and experienced captain, you will be equipped with a cruiser suit before departing from the dock in search of the mysterious and exciting wildlife that’s just waiting to be discovered. Just be sure to bring your camera to capture this raw beauty and prepare to experience the wild.
