**Please read our Zodiac Warning at the bottom of this page before making a reservation**

Departures available from mid March to mid October! 


For those seeking a fast-paced, adventurous ride and the ultimate west coast experience, join us on one of our exciting Zodiac tours and become one with nature!


We make sure that you're fully equipped for the ride before hopping on-board one of our adventurous 12 passenger open boats with full-body flotation suits that are designed to protect you from the cold. We have a large selection of floatation suits and can accommodate passengers of varying ages and size. With tours that are 2-3 hours long, we offer numerous daily departures which vary depending on the season.

Enjoy the breathtaking landscapes of Barkley Sound while our experienced skipper teaches you facts about Ucluelet’s unique ecological systems and cultural past. Along the way to common feeding areas of whales, near Long Beach and through the Broken Group Islands, there are many opportunities to view sea otters, sea lions, seals, eagles and lots of other wildlife in their natural habitat. When whales or other wildlife are spotted, our skippers stop the vessel, providing you with the perfect opportunity to observe and photograph the innate behaviours of these mammals including spouting, feeding, flipper-slapping and breaching!


Return back to the office and warm up with a complimentary coffee, tea or hot chocolate, the perfect opportunity to show off your photos and share your experience!

Although our zodiacs are a fun way to get out on the water, this can sometimes be a bumpy ride and is not suitable for everyone! We do not recommend this tour for anyone with a history of serious medical conditions. These include, but are not limited to, anyone who is pregnant, those with back or neck problems, osteoporosis, incontinence or recent surgery.

For safety purposes, we do not take passengers who are less than 4’8” (142cm) in height on the Zodiac-style vessels.
