Coastal Rainforest Safaris – Whale Watching and Wildlife Viewing Tours

Coastal Rainforest Safaris delivers exciting wilderness experiences by Rigid Hull Inflatable wildlife viewing boats, commonly referred to as zodiacs, amongst the diverse wildlife of British Columbia’s Great Bear Rainforest, on the wild West Coast of Canada. Departing from Port Hardy on northern Vancouver Island, we offer guests an immersive nature experience told from a unique, Indigenous perspective that explores our connection to the land and sea, the wildlife, and the history that makes the area what it is now.

We are unique in our vision of building a team of people from the territory that we are guiding in. Traditionally trained and culturally active, we share our local history, culture, food and harvest with adventurous visitors.

Authenticity is at the heart of our company and is present in everything that we do.
