Orcas frequent the waters of Haro Strait between March and October to feed on the salmon passing through on their migratory route. See these magnificent marine animals in their natural environment for an experience no aquarium can rival. The underwater kelp forests of the Pacific Northwest ocean ecosystem also provide a rich food source for other wildlife such as seals, seabirds and sea-otters, all of which may be spotted during your tour.

You can’t guarantee seeing what you want and it would have been great to see some killer whales, however the sea plane flights back and fore to Victoria were superb, I even got to sit in the cockpit on the return journey, whilst on the cruise we saw humpback whales, sea lions, seals and bald eagles amongst others. The crew were knowledgeable and approachable and made our tour most enjoyable.
