Experience one of nature's most priceless resources with today's Groupon: for $49, you get a whale watching tour (up to a $99 value, free for tots three-years-old and younger) at Jamie's Whaling Station, in either Tofino or Ucluelet. This Groupon does not include the additional $7 gas and research fee.

Jamie's Whaling Station has embarked on ocean adventures for nearly 30 years, exploring the natural habitats of whales, bears, and sea lions from the safety of their esteemed fleet of tour boats. Climb aboard one of the 65-foot vessels, Leviathan II and Lady Selkirk, and gaze out over the choppy horizon while on the lookout for Earth's largest mammals. Whale sightings occur seasonally, featuring encounters with greys, humpbacks, and orcas. Tours—which can last between two and three hours—include a complimentary hot beverage, indoor and outdoor seating, and access to the snack bar. Jamie's also guarantees cetacean sightings by issuing rain-check tour passes to any groups that do not spot one of these majestic creatures or the revenge-hungry captain on its trail. Jamie's recommends visitors dress for the cold, as stiff sea breezes may play off the strong waves and frisky Charybdises in the tour's path.

Jamie's Whaling Station - Tofino & Ucluelet

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.
