FAQ

Vancouver Island's diverse coastal ecosystems and the rich abundance of marine life in the Salish Sea make it an ideal location for porpoise watching adventures. The nutrient-rich waters support a variety of marine species, including harbour porpoises, creating ample opportunities for memorable encounters with these fascinating creatures.
Porpoise sightings are most common during the spring and summer months when their presence in the Salish Sea is more prevalent. However, porpoises can be spotted year-round, with optimal viewing conditions typically occurring during calm weather and clear waters.
Safety is our top priority on every tour. Our experienced captains and crew are trained to ensure a secure and enjoyable experience for all passengers. Life jackets are provided onboard, and safety briefings are conducted before departure to familiarize passengers with emergency procedures.
Harbour porpoises are known for their playful and curious behavior, often seen riding the bow waves of boats or leaping gracefully out of the water. During the tour, passengers can expect to observe these behaviors up close while learning about the natural history and ecology of these fascinating animals from our knowledgeable guides.
We recommend bringing sunscreen, sunglasses, a hat, and layered clothing to accommodate changing weather conditions. Additionally, it's a good idea to bring a camera or binoculars to capture the sights and sounds of your porpoise watching adventure.
In addition to porpoise watching, visitors to Vancouver Island can explore a variety of nearby attractions and activities, including whale watching tours, scenic coastal hikes, and cultural experiences in the charming seaside towns.
