Van Isle Marina Whale Watching

Van Isle Marina is by far one of the most critical marine zones in Sidney. Van Isle Marina whale watching can be a suitable start point for your whale watching journeys. Proximity to the Salish Sea and the ability to serve over 200 boats at the same time make Van Isle Marine ideal for whale-watching tours starting from the Sidney area. People can accidentally watch whales in Van Isle Marina by using rental boats. However, to observe whales in a more practical way, it's better to consult whale watching operators and experienced guides near the Sidney area, such as Sidney Whale Watching Service.


Types of Whales in Van Isle Marina

The Salish Sea waterways are the home of transient and resident Orcas, Gray whales and Humpback whales. There may be possible to observe Minke whales, dolphins, porpoises, sea lions, seals, river otters, and a wide variety of sea birds. During whale watching, Bald eagles may soar high above for hunting Salmon fishes, which multiplies whale watching attractiveness.
