Year Round Zodiac Adventure Tours
Prince of Whales, 812 Wharf Street, Victoria, British Columbia
Get ready for the Adventure of a Lifetime! Whether you are a first time whale watcher or a seasoned veteran, we guarantee that you will have a blast!
Our fleet of open-air, purpose built, zodiac-style vessels are Victoria’s largest and safest. Equipped with bright yellow inflatable collars, this stable design cushions your ride and guarantees maximum buoyancy even if the sea conditions are rough. With aerodynamic aluminum hulls and reliable twin two-hundred horsepower Mercury engines, our vessels are able to cover over one hundred miles in one trip. This maximizes the distance you can travel on your tour and the amount of time you are ultimately able to spend viewing whales and other marine wildlife.
Your tour will last a minimum of three hours and will include various stops at different points of interest within the protected waters of Haro Strait and the Strait of Juan de Fuca. While on scene with whales and other marine wildlife, the vessel will be positioned parallel to the animals allowing for excellent photo opportunities. All the while, you will be fully entertained and educated by the industry’s best and brightest marine adventure guides.
We have departures every half hour from 9am to 5pm during peak season allowing us to accommodate all types of travelers – especially those who are just visiting for the day or those who are arriving by cruise ship.
All of our guests are required to wear a Mustang Survival flotation suit for their entire Zodiac Adventure. These suits are designed to protect from cold weather and use closed-cell foam to offer flotation in the event of an emergency.
We keep a large inventory of flotation suits of varying size and can accommodate all ages. Guests are advised to dress warmly for their tour. We have changing facilities and lockable storage, on-sight, to ensure your privacy and the safety of your belongings.
This tour is not suitable for anyone with a history of serious medical conditions including but not limited to back or neck injury, recent surgery, and/or current or suspected pregnancy.
