Tofino Whale Watching

Welcome Aboard the Whale Watch Plus Program!

Remote Passages brings many years of experience and a responsible approach to whale watching in Tofino on the west coast. We offer a half-day whale watching program that travels to Gray whale feeding areas near Tofino, and a combination package which includes the thermal pools at Hot Springs Cove.

Our excursions take you through the pristine waters of Clayoquot Sound, revealing sensational scenery, and wildlife such as Gray whales, sea lions, seals, porpoise and Killer whales. The area is also known for its variety of sea birds, including tufted puffins, and the numbers of resident bald eagles.
