Orca Spirit Adventures Whale-Watching Zodiac Vessel

Victoria, BC


Enjoy a spectacular three-hour whale-watching adventure with knowledgeable marine naturalists in a Zodiac vessel on an Orca Spirit Whale-Watching Tour in Victoria.Zodiac vessel tours offer an exciting ride in all weather conditions.

Tour Highlights:

  • View orcas in their beautiful native habitat—the Juan de Fuca and Haro Straits are home to three resident orca pods, with over 70 family members.
  • Listen to whales communicating underwater via onboard hydrophones. Look out for porpoises, seals, otters, sea lions, cormorants and bald eagles along the way.
  • Watch and listen to sea lions at the Race Rocks Eco Reserve—a designated Marine Protected Area. Certified marine naturalists are on board to inform and educate about local wildlife and ecology, and to ensure whales remain for generations to come. Proceeds help sponsor marine research programs.
