BC Whale Tours  A Premium Marine Adventure Company in Victoria, BC. Eco-friendly whale watching with a passion for the Salish Sea! "We simply love what we do"

Whale, whale, whale! What a beautiful shot taken by passenger @kflork this past season!

Orcas are non-migratory and will often follow their food. Even though we are closed until March, there are orca that inhabit the Salish Sea year round! If you are in the area, keep your eyes peeled. .

From all of us at BC Whale Tours we want thank everyone who came out with us this year and to all our followers for your support. A lot of action has taken place on the Salish Sea this year with the Southern Residents, Biggs, CA’s and Unknown Killer whales! We also got to witness the T18’s make a successful whale kill (species unknown), super cool!
The great comeback of the Humpback continues with even more new individuals identified and with all the feed in the area we got to witness a lot of surface behaviours!
Don’t forget that you can still reach us through email or Facebook if you have any questions until we reopen in March!
Whale hope to see you then 🐳🐋

Happy Thanksgiving weekend! We are constantly thankful for the Salish Sea and the abundance of life it supports. The opportunity to educate people from around the globe, while putting value in this rich ecosystem is why we simply love what we do!.

BC Luna was the first vessel of the fleet and is often referred to as a “floating limousine”. Her state of the art design was locally built by @titanboats with an extended cabin and open observation deck. As the only enclosed boat of the fleet she offers comfort and the intimate experience of a zodiac! With the highest safety rating in the industry BC Luna is a smooth ride and can accommodate all ages. .

Breach for the sky! 🐬

It’s always exciting to see surface behaviour, as most of the action takes place under the water.

An intentional sunset trip on BC Luna! As Fall comes closer the sun begins to set earlier and our afternoon trips are limited by the daylight. West of Victoria there is a large aggregation of Humpback whales feeding in the Juan de Fuca Strait. Last Monday, once on scene with the humpbacks, Capt Gordon got a report of orcas further west. He committed to showing them to his passengers by extending the tour to almost 5 hours! The lucky passengers got to experience a whale watch and a sunset cruise all in one tour!
Photo credit and kudos to Gordon! #badass #wegothedistance #leavethecrowdsbehind

These wonderful shots were taken on Sept 12th by Lindsey Kuit, a passenger on BC Luna. If you look closely BC Tika can be seen in the fog!

The large male in the photo is identified as T19B, a 23 year old who lives in a pod with his grandma, mom and younger brother, cool!
