Wild Life Tours

Vancouver Island British Columbia is renowned  for some of the best wild life viewing in the world. Strategically located at the intersection of Haro and Juan de Fuca Straits, these ocean “highways” conduct wildlife right to the city’s doorstep. The constant flow of both inbound and outbound animals creates a wealth of wildlife like whales, porpoise, seals, sea lions, fish and an astonishing array of marine birds.

Whale Watching Victoria Adventures

Family owned and operated for over 35 years Seaking Adventures in Victoria’s central location provides unlimited access to the Salish Sea. An east bound journey travels past the scenic Gulf and San Juan Islands before crossing Georgia Strait to the city of Vancouver and the mouth of the mighty Fraser River. To the south lie the vast inland waters of Puget Sound and the massive snow-capped volcanoes that dominate the Washington State skyline. Heading west towards the open Pacific Ocean, the Strait of Juan de Fuca reveals the rugged Race Rocks Ecological Reserve and shores still shimmering with pristine wilderness. Regardless of direction, every adventure takes place in world class cruising waters.

    Thank you so much for the most fantastic Whale watching experience. After three previous attempts on three prior visits to Vancouver Island you came up trumps where others had failed. Your dedication, knowledge, humour and personality was equally enjoyed as you searched for the Humpbacks. We would have been happy with one, but to find two pair and one with a calf was just brilliant.

    If anyone is reading this and wishes to go Whale watching, then look no further....Captain Ron King will deliver. A great start to our holidays. Thank you.

    Had a wonderful tour today! It was educational for our whole family. Our International students had the experience of a lifetime as Captain Ron took the time to slow down and explain about the local marine ecology. He has many years of experience and knows just where to position the boat for the best viewing. I would highly recommend this small local company.

    I found Sea King adventures by accident while acting like a tourist in Victoria. A friend and I were wandering around a saw a sign that said Guaranteed whales today. We decided to go check it out. Next thing I knew we were booking an afternoon trip to see the whales.

    Captain Ron and his wife were so friendly and they took the time to explain how things were going to work. After getting geared up and going through all the safety precautions we were on our way. We truly enjoyed our adventure and Captain Ron was very knowledgeable of the surroundings and marine life in the area. the boat is smaller and not crowded so you get the feeling your out on a friends boat enjoying the day.

    Best whale watching experience in Victoria. Captain Ron did a great job of tracking the orcas and having us in the best possible position for viewing. Small fast boat, intimate experience. You don't have to worry about somebody getting in the way of your picture.  Highly recommend.
