Prince Rupert Adventure Tours can show you the most stunning and magnificent displays of wildlife in and around BC’s Beautiful North Coast!

Grizzly Bear Tour

Our Grizzly Bear Tours in the Khutzeymateen Valley will give you a chance to see these legendary giants in their natural environment! Our goal is to provide you with a safe, pleasurable, unique wilderness experience. We conscientiously avoid altering the natural behavior of these creatures.

Whale Watching Tour

Come and experience the greatest show on Earth! We can show you the most stunning and magnificent displays of wildlife in and around the North Coast’s sheltered Inside Passage. You may encounter Grey whales feeding around enormous kelp beds, Humpback whales flashing their unique tails as they dive to feed, Orca whales following the migrating salmon, or porpoises playfully gliding alongside the boat. As well, you may see Stellar sea lions, Harbour seals, eagles, Blue herons, and more!

North Coast whale watching is acknowledged as one of the most accessible and predictable locations to see whales. It is truly an unforgettable adventure experience of a lifetime

We were extremely fortunate to get a tour on one of the dry days in Prince Rupert [apparently they get a lot of rain] and the trip was our best ever whale watching experience. Having ventured north up the coast we first watched a few humpbacks in the open ocean coming up close to the surface in front of the... More

Our trip started out with a bald eagle which had just caught a fish and was flying overhead. Throughout the trip we saw grey whales and orcas as well as two bears sitting around in the grass. Later our captain found a grizzly bear walking along the shore line which we followed for about half an hour. That is probably... More

Prince Rupert Adventure Tours is an unreliable outfit from our experience. My husband, my parents and I had booked a whale-watching tour with them several months before our visit. Two days before our scheduled tour, I received an email confirming our tour. We arrived at the specified meeting place an hour before the scheduled departure only to be told that... More

The Whale Watching Tour departs rain or shine however the forecast was predicting high wind warnings which forced most guests to cancel. In case of cancellation, we make every effort to reschedule passengers. We do reserve the right to cancel due to weather or minimum numbers. More

Regardless of the season, both the grizzly bear and whale watching tours are awsesome and a must do activity in Rupert. The staff and crew are very knowlegdable, the boat is smooth in all conditions and the wildlife is some of the best you will see on the west coast of Canada without having to get wet and cold.

We had great hopes for seeing a pod of whales frolicking in the wild...sadly, it didn't happen. It wasn't for lack of searching by our expert guides. We did see a few and enjoyed the trip so much overall that we weren't disappointed. Nature is nature so you have to appreciate what it gives you and we did. The coastal... More

Adventure Tours takes you out on a comfortable catamaran vessel with lots of interior and exterior space for all guests. There are 2 knowledgable tour guides on every trip giving you all the relevant information about the different whales and more. More importantly, they approach and treat the whales with respect and keep the right distance to them to ensure... More
