For those wanting to watch the majestic whales in their natural environment from the protection of a large cruiser vessel; the MV LUKWA is a great choice!


We started offering Whale Watching tours back in 1982! Since then we've collected loads of experience on finding these giants based on common feeding grounds, travel patterns, and seasonal behaviours. Join us for an amazing experience in search of incredible creatures, and unforgettable views.


Enjoy the scenic views along the wild coastline of Clayoquot Sound on our way to common feeding areas of whales, near Flores Island or Long Beach. Learn about the area’s fascinating ecosystems with our engaging naturalists while experiencing first-hand the inherent characteristics of whales including spouting, feeding, spy-hopping and breaching! With opportunities to view loads of wildlife, including Sea Lions, Sea Otters, Eagles, birds - both inshore and pelagic, this tour offers something for the wildlife lover.  


Featuring indoor and outdoor seating you can enjoy great views from all decks. The Lukwa is Transport Canada certified and cruises through the pristine waters of Clayoquot Sound. This steady and comfortable tour is a great option for everyone, including families, larger groups and photographers!
