If you’re on Vancouver Island and looking for whale watching tour adventures, Campbell River is a great place to start looking as you have multiple opportunities to choose from.
Campbell River is only 1h 45mn North of Nanaimo so it’s much faster than going to Tofino if your time is limited. It’s also a fast and straight highway, no winding roads to go North.
Once in Campbell River, you have to decide what kind of tours you’d like to go on: You can go for budget-friendly whale watching tours that will take you on a 2h fast pace zodiac tour or you can decide to spend a whole day marvelling at the wild life we enjoy on our magical North Vancouver Island, multiple tour operators can be found operating from the Discovery Harbour Marina with great parking facilities or from the Coast Marina, downtown Campbell River.
