Viewing vibrant wildlife frolicking in its natural environment is far more satisfying than viewing mecha-fauna grazing on artificial turf. Survey authentic vivacity with today's Groupon: for $48, you get one adult ticket to a whale watching or bear watching tour (up to an $89 value) including eco fee (a $2 value) and fuel surcharge (a $6.23 value) from West Coast Aquatic Safaris (up to a $97.23 total value), located in Tofino.
West Coast Aquatic Safaris ogles the vibrant beauty of wildlife thriving in its natural habitat with environmentally responsible boat tours. Forget the vessel's helm and focus all attention toward the watery stage where gray whales, humpback whales, and orcas splash spectacularly and demonstrate the chicken leg dance during the whale watching tour. Otherwise, cruise along the Clayoquot Sound as black bears ham it up and steal camera shots from rival bald eagles, sea lions, seals, and porpoises along the bear watching tour.
West Coast Aquatic Safaris' sea crafts smoothly float passengers along for two-and-a-half to three hours and feature an outdoor deck and an indoor cabin where sight-eyeing sojourners can take shelter during a rain shower or salamander plague. Year-round whale tours depart three times a day, while bear tours only deploy June through August and are subject to the tides.
Although West Coast Aquatic Safaris sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
