We have operated seasonally out of Campbell River from mid May through to mid October since 2007. During this time, we have earned an international reputation with our fun, educational, ethical, safe and professional marine adventure tours that feature Whale watching and Grizzly Bear tours.
Campbell River is the perfect home base from which to operate marine adventure and wildlife tours. it is a friendly coastal community enriched by land and sea. The area is rich in cultural history, forested trails, towering mountains and a pristine marine environment. And the marine wildlife is literally on our doorstep. It is a place where it is easy to reconnect with nature. A place where you can mingle and spend time with locals, all eager to help you find local attractions and secluded spots to relax and unwind.
Our adventure whale watching & grizzly bear tours are rated as some of the best!
If you’re at all interested in our local culture, coastal communities and history, then a History on the Water Tour with the museum at Campbell River is not to be missed. These partnered tours depart every Sunday from June through to the end of August. Each week we head off to different locations around the Discovery Islands and Desolation Sound. You will learn about the indigenous peoples in whose territories we cruise through and early settlers . These history tours are popular with locals and book up fast!
If you’re looking for an extra burst of adrenaline and the opportunity to see our region from every angle you won’t want to miss these land, air and sea partnered helicopter tours with 49 North Adventures. It’s worth booking the extra night for the experience!
Get Off the Fence and Get on the Boat!
I went on this tour on the recommendation of a friend. I’m glad I did as it was a life-changing experience. The staff and crew were friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. The boat was roomy and felt stable. I found the price to be fair, but that’s relative.
We saw lots of whales, which changed my relationship with the ocean and the planet at large. These majestic creatures deserve our respect and protection. I cannot more highly recommend Discovery Marine Safaris!
