Considering everything going on in the world these days, we’re all looking for a safe and fun diversion this holiday season. Somewhere we can take our family or small group of friends. Somewhere in the fresh air away from crowds. Somewhere that will help us happily kick 2021 out the door!

Look no further than our big blue back yard—also known as the Salish Sea!

Eagle Wing Whale and Wildlife Tours offers marine adventures throughout the year, including the holiday season. December through to the end of April is our popular winter wildlife viewing season with plenty of unforgettable viewing opportunities in and around the waters off southern Vancouver Island.

You’ll be surprised at how much there is to see out there!

Although whales can’t be guaranteed at this time of year, our extended range means a better chance of finding whales while you enjoy your time aboard one of our heated, semi-covered catamarans. Along the way, we have plenty of other things to show you! More on that below.

COVID-19 safety measures continue

Sounds great so far, right? But is whale watching a safe thing to do right now? This is a good question that you should be asking—and we’re happy to answer!

Be assured that safety is always our number-one priority. Our extensive COVID-19 safety measures—consistently praised by our guests—remain in place. They’re regularly reviewed and updated as new information comes in from public health authorities.

Learn more about what we’re doing to keep you safe—and what you can do to help—in Our Safety Pledge.
