Campbell River Marine & Wildlife tours

For the marine lover, Campbell River and the surrounding Discovery Islands offer a hub of opportunities for whale watching, bear viewing and diving enthusiasts. There is a wide selection of tours available from the sea to the sky.  Experience everything from whales, dolphins and sea lions to bears, elk, and eagles through the safe guidance of an experienced and knowledgeable tour operator.

Some of the most majestic and awe-inspiring views in the world start with adventures from around Campbell River and our neighbouring communities. Go off the beaten path and experience the diversity and exotic wilderness and wildlife with the many adventure tours available.

Discover the historical connection to the ocean, mountains and wildlife that dates back centuries and defines the culture that exists today. A menu of choices is available that range from structured to free exploration, all with the same goal, to immerse yourself in the diverse and natural surroundings that define the uniqueness of the region.

Marine tours are available year-round, and Grizzly Bear viewing is best between mid-August and Mid-October. Care is taken to manage the number of participants viewing the animals on each tour, so book early to avoid disappointment!
