Vancouver Island Marine & Wildlife Adventure Tours

Experience the breathtaking scenery and wildlife that Vancouver Island has to offer. Enjoy a private marine tour of Esperanza, Nootka Sound, or Victora, BC. Relax with family and friends in calm waters while taking in the natural beauty of the west coast

We offer four hour customized tours whether it be viewing of humpback whales, sea otters, bald eagles, seals, or black bears. Combine your wildlife tour with some inshore fishing. Troll the fjord edges for coho and Chinook salmon, or drop a jig to the bottom to see what species of cod are around. Learn the basics of saltwater fishing on the west coast. Catch and release of all species is not required, but supported by our team. This is a great learning experience for a young family or for anyone who wants to enjoy the wild west coast in a serene atmosphere.

Protected water tours avoid issues with sea sickness and can be customized to your interests. The natural history of the area with the Spanish arriving in the mid to late 1800's and Captain Cook and the British shortly after will interest any history enthusiasts. Photography opportunities are endless with the rich marine environment on Vancouver Island's west coast.

Guest Feedback


Well another awesome trip! I have been fortunate to experience Reel Obsession 4 times now... 2011, 2013, 2015 and 2017.  My husband Lance has been here 5 times! With each new year this place grows and blossoms -- inching to perfection.  Adrian is not only the best guide and fisherman -- but also a very conscience business man who's at the top of his game.   We will be back!! From the warm, cozy, beautiful atmosphere -- to the amazing fishing -- it's been wonderful! Thanks!
