Welcome to Beachcomber Ocean Tours & Wild Edge Lodge
Welcome to Beachcomber Ocean Tours and Wild Edge Lodge. We are a small tour company located on the west coast of Vancouver Island, in the harbour town of Ucluelet. We offer whale and bear watching tours in Barkley Sound.
We currently operate two tours to view west coast wildlife:
Our tours travel out into the pristine waters of Barkley Sound. Depending in the time of year, you can expect to see humpback whales, gray whales, orca, sea lions, seals, sea otters, bald eagles and abundant sea birds. Bears can often be seen exploring the shore line, turning over rocks and looking for food.
Watch our short video to see what you can expect on one of our tours.
Our tours feature plenty of opportunities to take photographs and to learn about the natural and cultural history of the west coast. Although we cannot guarantee wildlife sightings, our knowledge of the area means that we know all the best places to look!
For every ticket sold, we make a monetary donation to Surfrider Pacific Rim. Your business helps us to support the environmental work of Surfrider Pacific Rim.
Wild Edge Lodge is a fishing and adventure lodge located on our property in Ucluelet. After a day with Beachcomber Ocean Tours, stay a little longer and enjoy the sites of Ucluelet. We are just a short walk away from Ucluelet Aquarium, Big Beach and the Wild Pacific Trail.
