About Us

Sooke Whale Watching is a family owned and operated environmentally-friendly, year-round marine and eco-adventure touring company, serving Sooke, Victoria, San Juan Islands, Jordan River, and Port Renfrew.

Sooke Whale Watching owners are experts with the weather patterns, geography, wildlife and ancient history of Sooke, Victoria, and almost everything in between and beyond the western Vancouver Island shores. Your trip of up to 3 hours with us will be filled with a wealth of local knowledge and not a scripted spiel.

We are a Transport Canada & PWWA certified Whale Watch Operator. When it comes to safety and experience, we are the best. What does this mean for you? It means a fun filled, exhilarating coastal adventure with all the facts and anecdotes you can handle. And, we bring you back to shore, safe and sound.

The Vessel


Not all whale watching and eco-tour companies are created equal. In addition to giving you first-rate whale watching, Sooke Whale Watching operates with an eco-friendly vessel. The 12-passenger high-speed Zodiac features twin 250 horsepower 4-stroke engines, which use less fuel and emit fewer emissions into the ocean air. Respect for the whales and wildlife, as well as their habitat is a high priority for Sooke Whale Watching. An eco-friendly Zodiac is just one of the commitments we make to reduce the impact of our operations on the environment.

Our newest addition is a 12 Passanger 600 H.P. special off shore vessel that is the latest and greatest you can find!

To ensure your comfort, all our vessels are washroom equipped and are true west coat boats!

The Equipment

Outfitted for safety in your Personal Flotation suit, you will be ready for action and adventure.

You get up close and listen to the sub-water songs and dialogue with our leading edge on-board Hydrophone.

With extraordinary whale watching and in-depth discussions of marine mammal biology and ecology, we guarantee your trip with us will be not soon forgotten. Call today and join us on a whale watching marine adventure or informative eco-tour.
