  • Ocean Outfitters
    Based along the wave-lapped shores and lush topography of Tofino, Ocean Outfitters grants guests an intimate and informative exploration of majestic West Coast flora and fauna during environmentally responsible tours. With the salt-laced air tousling their hair, the company’s quintet of seasoned skippers pilots a fleet of meticulously maintained vessels about area waterways, letting loose their wisdom on the region’s wildlife and geology. Keels skim along the craggy, mist-laced coastline, granting guests a chance to snap scenic pictures or request autographs from whales whose songs have appeared on countless new-age albums. Ocean Outfitters' dedication to environmental stewardship is why the company strictly adheres to the guidelines for responsible whale watching, and supports local wildlife research and rescue programs through donations of a portion of its profits.

The low hull provides passengers a uniquely intimate encounter with the cool waters' many species of wildlife, including whales, porpoises, seals, and sea lions. But tour-goers should also keep an eye on the shoreline for bears and otters, and in the skies for bald eagles. Throughout the tour, the captain provides insight into this natural world and the history of human habitations, such as the arrival of the earliest settlers and the appointment of the first bear member of the Canadian Parliament.

  • Aquamarine Adventures
    Drifting lazily in the Inner Harbour Boat Basin, Aquamarine Adventures' Float House serves as the launching pad for summer whale-watching expeditions and year-round fishing charters. Seasoned docents lead guests out to the sea to scope humpback and grey whales amid splendid Barkley Sound seascapes, which also feature indigenous seals, otters, and eagles posing for portraits as high-school mascots. Under the auspices of professional fishing guides, anglers can also take to the waters in a 38-foot luxury sport-fishing yacht to plumb the depths for salmon and halibut year-round.

  • Jamie's Whaling Station
    It's unclear why whales jump and splash on the surface of the ocean. It could be to get attention from potential mates, or a way to lose the parasites on their backs. But it is also possible that the whales are simply having fun. From the vantage point of a 65-foot cruiser or an open zodiac-style whale-watching vessel, guests of Jamie's Whaling Station can observe grey and humpback whales in their natural environment, while forming their own hypotheses about their mystifying behaviour. In addition to whale-watching trips, Jamie's leads bear-watching tours, tours to Hot Springs Cove, kayaking adventures, group hiking, water taxi trips to hiking trails, cultural canoe tours, and sunset cruises to find out where the sun really goes at night. A portion of proceeds from all tours supports local wildlife research and rescue programs. At Hot Springs Cove, hikers can look forward to hot pools among the rocks to relax in while looking over the ocean.
