Great Pacific Adventures Victoria, Vancouver Island, British Columbia


Category: Activity
The spectacular and "Super Natural" Inner Harbour of Victoria, British Columbia, Canada, is the home base of operations for Great Pacific Adventures Incorporated. Serving visitors year-round to Vancouver Island and Victoria since 1995, GPA has lead the industry in innovation and customer service for outdoor eco-tour adventures.

The waters and islands of Juan de Fuca Strait, Haro Strait and the Strait of Georgia are a part-time home to three groups of "resident" whales, commonly known as "pods" of orca, or "killer" whales. Pods of whales are groups of families and individual whales that live and thrive mainly on salmon and other species of fish found in the waters of the Pacific Northwest. On occasion, "transient" orca whales are encountered on an individual or group basis, and are mainly dependent on other mammals, such as seals and sea lions as a core food source. Pods can gather together to form "super-pods" and have reached numbers in excess of 80 whales at a time!

Locally owned and operated, our family of certified outdoor adventure experts provides informative insight and in-depth knowledge of our unique habitat, combined with an unsurpassed nature-viewing experience.

All of our friendly and competent operators are Transport Canada safety certified marine biologists and naturalists. Great Pacific Adventures uses only the finest high-tech safety equipment and offers passenger transportation from your accommodation to any of our many adventure outposts. We adhere to the strictest wildlife viewing standards in the world to ensure a life-long commitment to the replenishment of our natural resources.
