About our Boat

The Zodiac is a seaworthy vessel, commonly used for whale watching on the outer coast of Vancouver Island, and also by the Coast Guard. It is outfitted with radar, GPS, and VHF radio so that we may communicate back to our 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.  Transport Canada Certified skippers provide passenger safety briefings and carry a full compliment of emergency equipment and communication devices. On our tours, each guest will be wearing what is known as a floater suit - a perfect wind breaker and a personal flotation device at the same time. Join us for an unforgettable experience on the Salish Sea!
