    Protecting The Whales That We Love

    You won’t find a group of people who appreciate and respect Vancouver Island’s marine wildlife more than the crew at Orca Sprit Adventures, which is why we are a proud proponent of the Pacific Whale Watch Association guidelines for responsible whale watching. And a portion of all whale watching adventure proceeds goes to support local marine research initiatives.

Introducing: Ocean Adventures Club

kids aquariumOrca Spirit Adventures and World Fisheries Trust have joined forces to create an interactive educational program, designed to introduce the marine environment around Vancouver Island to students and school groups.

The Ocean Adventures Club begins with a half-hour interactive interpretation with a marine naturalist in The Orca Spirit Education Room.  World Fisheries Trust has set-up a salt water touch tank aquarium to showcase the creatures in our surrounding ocean.  

The group will head out onto the water in Orca Spirit Adventures’ Covered Vessel, to enjoy a three-hour eco-adventure, to view whales and marine creatures in the wild.  Our University trained biologist will teach you about ocean diversity and whale behaviours in our oceans.
 
September is the most affluent month for marine mammal activity in the Salish Sea.  Our sightings include Orcas (both Resident and Transient), Humpback Whales, Minke Whales, Harbour Seals, California and Steller Sea Lions, Dall’s Porpoises, Harbour Porpoises, Otters and a plethora of marine birds incuding Cormorants and Bald Eagles.
