Tofino Whale Watching

95% of our tours result in a whale or bear spotting. Considering the wild and unpredictable nature of Vancouver Island’s West Coast, we are really proud of this.

If luck, weather, and the almighty universe conspire against us—and you don’t see the wildlife you came for—we will give you The Tofino Promise, a raincheck that will not expire, and guarantees you can come back for free to see the wildlife you deserve, whether on the same day or decades later.

If there’s an open spot on the boat, it’s yours. You can also trade it for a appetizer or drink in The Hatch Waterfront Pub.

When is the best time to see whales

Whales can be viewed year-round, but the strongest season begins in May, when a mind-blowing 20,000 grey whales swim past Tofino’s sandy shores. They’re intent on their annual migration from the Baja Peninsula to Alaska’s Bering Strait. You can expect to see whales until the end of October.

How close do we get to the whales

We are respectful of the current regulations and stay at a 100 meter distance. Sometimes though, as whales are curious animals, they swim closer to us but we always try our best to not disturb them if we can.
