We have provided educational and fun Whale Watching and Wildlife tours from Southern Vancouver Island for over 30 years!

In 2023 we enjoyed a 95%+ sightings success rate! However the wildlife is wild! If we don’t see whales. Join us again (for free!) on stand-by until you do.

We strive to have the best prices for your tour. If you find a better price for a comparable tour we will beat it

The Marauder provides one of the most unique Whale Watching experiances in Victoria BC

We generally offer the Ocean Cruiser (Marauder IV) tours departing at 10am and 2pm April through October.

The Zodiac departures are also offered at 10am and 2pm, May through September and 12pm throughout the fall and winter!

Sunset tours are available June – August.

Our tours are 3 to 3.5 hours in length. A tip for you – it’s best to allow some extra time for your tour, because sometimes we stay a little longer to give you the best trip possible!

Peak season is June – October however whales can be seen in our waters year around!

There is no better time to see whales throughout the day.

Guests should arrive no later than 30 minutes before their departure time. This ensures that we have enough time to get everyone checked-in and ready in time for their tour!
