Spring has arrived, or has it! Mother nature is consistent in the return of abundant wildlife to our coast, the weather is another issue..rain, hail, sun, snow.

This is what happens when the herring spawn. Our sea’s, coastline and skies explode with life. On today’s tour we had sightings of at least 15 Gray whales within a 3 mile area off Salomon Beach, hundreds of Surf Scoters, Humpback whales, Eagles, Sea lions and more.

A long overdue Update everyone.
August 2017 was good & bad for Beachcomber Ocean Tours. We had 2 weeks of adventures & happy customers then on August 17th we had total engine failure, unfortunate for many of our customers who were looking forward to tours to see wildlife & the magical waters of Barkley Sound.
Going forward we are excited to be up and running again & the MV Blackfish has been re-powered with a Volvo Penta D6 330. This is state of the art in new diesel engine technology combining superior performance with reduced exhaust emissions, high reliability and increased fuel efficiency. Thank You to Advanced Marine Power, Campbell River for your excellent service.
We are Looking forward to 2018 please joins us on our next Adventure!
