SpringTide Whale Watching & Eco Tours

Biosphere Committed, SpringTide Whale Watching & EcoTours proudly runs their vessels on biofuel, uses environmentally friendly paint on the bottoms of their vessels, uses synthetic oils over traditional oils, and fits their vessels with aluminum anodes instead of zinc (zinc anodes are known to release toxins into the Ocean). When you step foot on a SpringTide vessel, you know your jumping feet first into responsible action on the Salish Sea.

SpringTide provides whale watching tours that have captivated adventure seekers & wildlife enthusiasts from around the world for over 28 years. Family owned & operated, SpringTide is recommended as Victoria’s best whale watching tour company.

All tours are currently running on our luxury 60-foot Ocean Cruiser. Marauder IV is fast, quiet, stable and comfortable. Sit inside, outside, or on the top deck with the Captain – the viewing options are all terrific! Especially unique are side decks running the whole length of the boat – lots of room to move, view and take that perfect picture. A spacious bathroom and limited capacity to allow for social distancing make this 84-passenger boat suitable for all ages and abilities.
