Fancy a Whale Watch?

Here on the Pacific Rim, both Tofino and Ucluelet have many fantastic Whale Watching companies to choose from to get out on the water for a chance to witness the amazing show that Mother Nature puts on every single day. How lucky are we to have this in our own backyard?!

Although there are multiple companies with multiple sailing times, it is a good idea to book in advance to ensure your spot on the ever-popular Whale Watching and Nature Cruises.

Please contact the Whale Watching companies well in advance to
claim your spot! 

The Pacific Rim Whale Festival is happy to have companies such as 
Ocean Outfitters
Remote Passages Marine Excursions, Jamie's Whaling Station, and Subtidal Adventures as part of the festival's
Whale Watching gang. 


For contact information, go to our Events page to view the daily-featured tour companies' contact info!
