Orca Weekend

This season without fail, we have seen Orcas in the harbour or inside waters for at least a couple of days in a row.  Easter weekend they were behind Meares Island, May long weekend there was a group of Transient females in the same general area teaching a young one to eat Stellar Sea Lions and over Canada Day weekend they were up Millar Channel hunting Porpoise.  With this long weekend now upon us the team at West Coast Aquatic Safaris is very hopeful that we will find ourselves as lucky as we have been.

The one thing that is certain is that there is no chance of seeing some of the most incredible creatures circling our earth, if you are not on the trip.  This weekend West Coast Aquatic Safaris, our Captains and naturalist have one common goal; to show our guests the best possible time and scenery possible.  We have several departures each day and for those that want something extra special the possibility for a beautiful sunset cruise.

One of our most popular tours this week has been the morning Bear Watching from NANUQ.  As the tide has been shifting daily our next opportunity to see the bears in their environment  will be Saturday morning at the extremely reasonable time of 9:30 am.  Don’t forget your cameras because the morning light is excellent and we invite all of our guest to submit their best shots for our photo of the week contest.  Previous winning photos can be seen on our website and we look forward to your submission.

Reservations are encouraged but not required however, with two “first class vessels”, seats are filling up quickly so to make sure you have every chance to get on the trip that works best for your family we are open daily from 7am to 10:30pm or reservations can be made easily online24 hours in advance and give you that additional 10% savings.
