Marine EcoTours: Customize Your Own Whale-watching, Island-Hopping, Or Wine Tours In Victoria BC

By Lauren Elwood

If you are travelling in the vicinity of Victoria, British Columbia and interested in customizing your own tour with a private charter, Marine EcoTours allows you to plan a unique, personalized excursion according to your own schedule and preferences. Marine EcoTours specializes in customization, exclusivity, and luxury. Whether you’re interested in whale-watching, bird-watching, touring wineries, island-hopping, or a combination of the aforementioned, you can design your own tour, your way.

Whale-watching is one of the most popular tourist attractions in British Columbia’s coastal cities. However, with most tours, you have to adhere to the company’s schedule, you are required to wait in line to buy tickets (which may sell out at the height of prime tourist seasons), and then you have to sit shoulder-to-shoulder with strangers during the tour itself. Marine EcoTours offers private tours in the Victoria region, catering to the individual. You choose the time, you create the itinerary, you pick your fellow passengers–up to 8 people–and you even select the departure location (basically anywhere on Vancouver Island, Salt Spring Island, or Vancouver).

The prime months for whale sighting are April, May, June, July, August, September, and October with the optimal months being June-September. The region is known for its orca, humpback, gray, and minke whales, and porpoises and seals a frequently sighted on tours as well.

Bird-watching tours are also available. Nearby waters offer many opportunities for pelagic birding (observing oceanic birds). Examples of birds that may be seen in the area include Bald Eagles, Cormorants, Brown Pelicans, Harlequin Ducks, and Mergansers. Other flora and fauna can also be observed along the shores. Marine EcoTours can offer you either recreational or naturalist guided tours, depending on your level of interest.

In British Columbia, wine tours attract both locals and tourists alike. Based out of Victoria, BC, Marine EcoTours offers chartered tours in the area, which include the neighbouring Gulf Islands. Located off the southern coast of Vancouver Island, the Gulf Islands have five wineries, which are easily accessed by boat. This presents the option of touring several of the wineries as a day trip, or selecting one as the highlight of your customized tour. Alternately, you can book an excursion of general island-hopping to enjoy the sights each has to offer.

Regardless of what your dream tour is, Marine EcoTours can make it a reality. Our customized tours offer one-of-a-kind, memorable experiences with that personalized touch.

If you would like to learn more about Vancouver Island boat tours, Marine EcoTours provide private charters for whale watching excursions, bird-watching trips, island hopping, or wine tours. Take a look at this article profiling Marine EcoTours for information on your options.
