Check Availability


Set off aboard a speedy Zodiac or comfortable cruiser for a guided whale-watching excursion in Barkley Sound. Admire this pristine natural setting as you get up close to grey and humpback whales – there may even be an orca to see breaching and diving in the waves.

Cruise across the waves towards the verdant hills and deep blue waters of Barkley Sound – this area is a prime feeding and breeding ground for migratory whales, and the perfect place to spot the massive oceanic mammals in their natural habitat. You can opt for a ride on a high-speed, open-air Zodiac, or a calmer mode of transport on the stable and sturdy Lady Selkirk.

Listen as your naturalist guide shares information about the various whale species that call these waters home, from their breeding behaviours to the complex songs they use to communicate with one another. Keep your binoculars and camera handy to capture these majestic creatures as they breach, dive and tail-slap alongside your vessel.
