West Coast Aquatic Safaris is proud to offer our vessel NANUQ

– the only accessible boat in Tofino.

NANUQ gives people with mobility challenges the opportunity to get out on the water for accessible whale and wildlife watching.

West Coast Aquatic Safaris has a ramp to provide access to the office. We also have a ramp to load aboard NANUQ, priority accessible parking at the harbour and a pre-loading protocol.

Our 36-passenger vessel NANUQ has ramp access and good sight-lines for viewing while seated.

virtual whale watching with easter seals

We are working hard to share the magic of whale watching with people of all means and abilities. Most recently about 40 Easter Seals BC/Yukon children, youth and adults with disabilities were treated to a virtual whale watching tour.

The online accessible trip was an inaugural collaboration between West Coast Aquatic Safaris and Easter Seals, British Columbia & Yukon, British Columbia Lions Society for Children with Disabilities.
