Whale Watching Victoria

The waters surrounding Victoria are home to an abundance of marine wildlife. The orca, or killer whale, is the main whale found in the area, but gray, humpback and minke whales are also sighted. Sea lions, seals, porpoise and a number of marine birds are also residents. Three pods of resident orcas totaling over 80 whales live in Victoria's waters.

Visitors can join local certified naturalists for a guided marine adventure tour to see and learn about these animals first-hand. A marine wildlife tour usually includes a trip to Race Rocks Ecological Reserve. Race Rocks is the most southern part of Vancouver Island and of Canada on the Pacific coast. It is Canada's first Marine Protected Area and is home to an abundance of marine life.
