Due to the rapidly evolving COVID-19 situation, we have made the difficult decision to suspend our operations until further notice. (June 30, 2020)

As always, the health and safety of our staff and guests are paramount and we feel that we can no longer meet the social distancing requirements being advised by the Public Health Agency of Canada, the BC Centre for Disease Control, the World Health Organization and other global and provincial health agencies.

Flattening the curve

Doing our part to “flatten the curve” and minimize the impact on our burdened health care system is the responsible thing to do for the greater community. We strongly encourage everyone to take the social distancing measures necessary in their own lives to stay healthy and help protect society’s most vulnerable people.

Tour cancellations

We will continue to monitor the situation and re-assess our closure when the situation improves and public health agencies indicate it is safe to do so.

In the meantime, guests booked on a tour from now until June 30 will be refunded automatically and receive an email supporting this over the next few days from our Reservation System. Please feel free to contact our office or if you would like to rebook later in the summer.

Stay well, everyone!

We will get through this—working together and looking after each other. The Salish Sea and all its wildlife wonders are not going anywhere and will be waiting for us when we recover from this extraordinary global challenge. We look forward to seeing you then!

In the meantime, stay tuned to our social media channels over the coming days and weeks and we’ll do our best to keep you amazed, informed and dazzled—as we always do!


  • wash your hands frequently and thoroughly
  • avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth
  • stay home if you’re experiencing any cold or flu-like symptoms
  • avoid close contact with anyone who has a fever or a cough
  • stay home; if you must go out for essentials, socially distance yourself from others as much as possible (two metres recommended)
  • be considerate of other more vulnerable members of the community

We wish you and your families good health as we navigate these unsettling times.
