Wildlife Galleries

The Pacific waters off southern Vancouver Island are teeming with an abundance of marine wildlife. There is a wide variety of fish and bird species, and of course large marine mammals. Included here are just a few examples of what lives in the southern Vancouver Island waterways, specifically the marine wildlife you are most likely to witness on our Whale Watching tour.

Our high quality, all-inclusive Whale Watching adventure focuses on the Southern Resident Orca Whale, Transient Orca pods, Humpback Whales, Grey Whales, Minke Whales, Dall’s Porpoises, Harbour Seals, Sea Lions, Bald Eagles, and a variety of marine birds are also abundant in the area.

It is a truly amazing experience to watch all of the wonderful animals in their natural environment. Whales are our passion! We love sharing Vancouver Island’s marine ecosystem and all that inhabits it. We are dedicated to responsible and ethical whale watching and wildlife viewing.

We consider our vessel a floating classroom. Our captains/naturalists have a vast amount of knowledge of Vancouver Island’s and the Gulf Islands’ local natural history. As well as the most up to date science regarding our local orca whales, humpback whales, gray whales and the rest of marine eco system. The more we learn about our local ecosystem, the harder we’ll work to protect it.

Ocean Ecoventures is committed to responsible and ethical wildlife viewing. We believe it is a priviledge to witness marine wildlife in their natural habitat, and as such these animals must be protected from human harassment and above all they must be respected.
