Overview
Our 6-Hour trips give us the opportunity to venture out further and explore some of the more pristine and remote areas of the coast. Increase your chances of seeing some of the larger marine life, like whales and dolphins! In the spring and fall we have a very good chance of spotting black bears and Grizzly's scavenging on the beach! We frequently encounter resident Orca's, humpback whales, pacific white sided dolphins, porpoises, bald eagles and more! Tour Length: 6 Hours Includes beverages, snacks, and lunch

Be prepared to be “wowed”! Josh & Chelsea were extremely knowledgeable, professional and fun to be with on the boat. Mr. Hank was an added bonus. The orcas did not disappoint (all 15 to 18 of them). We would recommend Discovery West Adventures to anyone and everyone.

We had an absolutely amazing trip with Josh on 5 October. We were extra lucky as it was only the two of us that had booked for that day. Josh explained the format of the day and what wildlife we hope hopefully see and we set off on our trip. Bearing in mind this is very late

We did the 6 hours whale watching tour last week and enjoyed one of the best days of our holiday. What a great experience! We had encounters with the orca's, bears and whale's! Josh was the best skipper ever and gave us so much information about everything we saw on the way. He
