Zodiac Boat Tours - Cruise the Salish Sea, Desolation Sound and Beyond
Explore the pristine waters and many marine parks of the Salish Sea aboard our 24 foot rigid hull inflatable Zodiac Hurricane. The vessel provides a platform from which to observe and learn about the abundant wildlife, while our guides also share their knowledge about the areas human history, from First Nations culture to European settlement.
While each trip is different, we are fortunate to see resident wildlife, which may include eagles, harbour seals, sea birds, sea stars and sea lions, and on occasion visiting orca and humpback whales all surrounded by stunning scenery.
Commonly used by the Canadian Coast Guard and for whale watching, the Zodiac boat is a seaworthy vessel. It is outfitted with a variety of communication and safety equipment as per Transport Canada regulations, including a base station in Lund. The 4-stroke Yamaha engine is extremely quiet and has low environmental emissions. Although it is able to travel at high speeds, our tours are characterized by frequent stops, where we may idle or drift as we take in the sights and sounds around us.
Our certified skippers provide passenger safety briefings and carry guest comfort items including binoculars and lap blankets. On our tours, each guest will be wearing what is known as a floater coat - a perfect wind breaker and a personal flotation device at the same time.
Join us for an unforgettable experience on the Salish Sea!
