Whale Watching

There are many opportunities to experience the breathtaking natural beauty and wildlife in the Ucluelet area. Local whale watching and wildlife tour operators are experts on the local wildlife. Not only will they guide you through the natural habitat of these majestic creatures, they will give you an interpretive tour of the region's natural and cultural history.

If you are lucky, you might see a humpback whale breach out of the water and land back on the surface with a huge spray! Or you might see a gray whale splashing their tale as they dive for another mouthful of baitfish. Watching these marine mammals is truly an experience you will remember for the rest of your life!

Listen to the barking of Stellar and California sea lions as they bask in the sunshine in Barkley Sound. Black bears, sea otters, harbour seals, eagles and other coastal birds can also be seen on most wildlife tours.
