Based out of Harbour Quay Marina, Port Alberni, BC, located on the west coast of Vancouver Island – SilverFox Marine Charters offers eco-tours travelling in and around the coastal waters of Barkley Sound.
During our eco-tours you will have the opportunity to learn about the history of BC coastal First Nations culture and tour of their old settlements. You will have photo opportunities to capture the abundance of wildlife, including whales, bears, and a variety of other marine wildlife. Walk the boardwalks of the coastal fishing villages, or beachcomb the sandy beaches of remote islands, and take in all this beautiful coastal landscape has to offer. While onboard, we will provide great homestyle cooking for all three daily meals.
Annually we do about 10 overnight trips a year, starting at the beginning of May, to the end of September. Our most popular package is our 4 night / 5 day all-inclusive overnight charter.
