Take a whale-watching cruise through Barkley Sound

Discover the rugged beauty of Barkley Sound on this wildlife tour of the scenic Broken Group Islands. Some commercial boat trips are very impersonal but on this cruise, you will be welcomed like family and meet nice people. And you will be amazed by the beautiful surroundings of the Pacific Rim National Park.

You will board the Raincoast Maiden, a luxurious 16-meter motor yacht. You will be greeted by Alan and Toddy Landry, who call the yacht home and are also your guides. They have decades of experience, plus a great passion for the area.

Your adventure begins in the Ucluelet Inlet. This fishing port has a rich history and abundant wildlife. Spot whales, bears, sea otters, eagles, and seals during the cruise. And visit a large sea lion colony. Once you've reached these protected waters, the journey takes you past secluded beaches and untouched landscapes. When the yacht drops anchor, you experience the silence of this beautiful landscape.
