“An understanding of the natural world and what’s in it is a source of not only a great curiosity but great fulfillment.”
– David Attenborough
On board our comprehensive whale & wildlife adventure tours we educate over 36,000 people from all over the world every year. At Eagle Wing Tours, we are in a very privileged position to share our local knowledge and passion with others! Contact us to find out how to get your class onboard!
We donate tours (minus basic costs) to all Greater Victoria Schools for an educational adventure at sea. The goal is to take out as many local students as possible to inspire the next generation of Salish Sea ambassadors! Contact us to find out how to get your class onboard!
In 2019-2020, we will be taking out 1400+ students onto the Salish Sea in our ‘Exploring the Salish Sea Floating Classroom’ where we will be connecting children to their marine backyard. This is the first official year of this program which piloted in 2018-2019 with over 800 students in which was an overwhelming success! We will be continuing this program annually in the hopes that every single child in school districts in-and-around Victoria will be able to learn about the Salish Sea. (2020-2021–has been postponed due to COVID-19)
Each year, Eagle Wing Tours helps organize community events to educate people about the importance of marine conservation. Be sure to check out the World Oceans Day Celebrations at Fisherman’s Wharf each June in Victoria, BC.

“Thank you for giving our homeschooling community this opportunity. We hope to do it again with you soon.“ — Caelen Bright

“It seems to me that the natural world is the greatest source of excitement; the greatest source of visual beauty; the greatest source of intellectual interest. It is the greatest source of so much in life that makes life worth living.” — David Attenborough
