Whale Watching

The protected waters and passageways of coastal British Columbia have long served as a safe haven for whales, so when it comes to whale watching in Canada, it’s the perfect place to go.

Witness resident orca pods feeding at the surface and migratory humpback whales passing by in endless groups.

Watch in anticipation as a dorsal fin is the first to break the glassy surface, and feel the splash of salty air as one breaches from the depths.

Of course, you don't have to be in Western Canada to come across a whale, as the Atlantic provinces and Churchill, Manitoba offer world-class opportunities to see humpbacks and belugas.

Wherever you go for your Canada whale watching tour, expect to get up close and personal with these majestic marine mammals.
