Whale watching FAQ

1. When do you see whales and bears?

We see whales from March right through until the end of October and we see bears from April through October.

2. What type of whales will we see?

We usually see Gray whales and Humpback whales. We occasionally see Orca whales as well, but only a couple times a month

(without notice), as they are transient Orcas.

3. How close do we get to the whales bears?

We are regulated, by the Canadian DFO, to stay at least 100 meters away from the whales. We respect these guidelines and the safety of the whales we view. It is however, possible for the whales to swim towards our boats as they can be curious and

playful creatures.

For bear watching, we aim to keep a safe and respectful distance from the bears as to ensure they feel comfortable with us being there while they feed and play.

If they are scared away by boats approaching too closely it can make them search for safer areas that may be out of reach.
