Coastal Rainforest Safaris - Whale Watching and Wildife Viewing Tours

Coastal Rainforest Safaris delivers exciting wilderness experiences rooted in the culturally rich territories of the Kwakwaka’wakw people. Hop aboard our rigid hull inflatable (RHIB) wildlife viewing boats and explore 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 that explores our connection to the land and sea, the wildlife, and the First Nations people who have lived here since time immemorial.

Climb aboard our vessels and step into a world of rugged and untamed coastal waters and shorelines. Under the surface or around the next cove, nature awaits to inspire and amaze. Experience and connect with the diverse species of wildlife that inspired the myths and legends of the local First Nations, from the giant humpback whale to the vast rookeries of Stellar sea lions.

We are unique in our vision of building a team of people from the territory that we are guiding in. We share our local history and culture with adventurous visitors.. Authenticity is at the heart of our company and is present in everything that we do.

🌊🐺 Dive into the fascinating world of sea wolves with these fun facts! 🌟 Did you know...

1. Sea wolves are coastal specialists, uniquely adapted to thrive in the rugged landscapes of the Pacific Northwest. 🏞️

2. Unlike their inland relatives, sea wolves are exceptional swimmers, often traversing between islands in search of prey. 🏊‍♂️🐟

3. Their fur is lighter in color, providing perfect camouflage against the coastal rocks and cliffs. 🌿🌊

4. These coastal predators play a vital role in maintaining the balance of marine and terrestrial ecosystems by controlling prey populations. 🦌🐬

5. While they face challenges like habitat loss, efforts are underway to study and conserve these majestic creatures for generations to come. 🌎💙

Join us in celebrating the beauty and importance of sea wolves in our coastal ecosystems! 🌟🐺 #SeaWolves #CoastalAdventures #WildlifeFacts 🌊🐾 #coastalrainforestsafaris #crs #safetrueeducational

A Sea Nettle jelly seen in the shallows during one of our tours this past summer. Beautiful to watch, but their sting can be painful. While our gueats often join us looking for larger marine mammals, it is often the small surprises that really make the trip memorable.
