ʔiymot kʷunome, it is good to see you! Homalco Wildlife & Cultural Tours offers guests the opportunity to visit, explore and learn on the traditional territory of the Homalco First Nation in Bute Inlet. Join them for an immersive experience discovering the spectacular wilderness of their traditional territory and enjoy the chance to view some of North America’s most sought-after wildlife, including grizzly bears, salmon, eagles and whales through an Indigenous perspective.

Take a comfortable heated boat tour on the Great Bears of Bute experience and meet the χawgəs, the Grizzly Bear, on an exciting full day tour of respectful wildlife viewing in this truly spectacular part of Canada. On a People, Water, Land tour look out for humpback whales, orcas, sea lions, porpoises, dolphins, bald eagles and other seabirds. Back on land, take an interpretive walk with your Indigenous guide to learn about bears and traditional uses of the land, before a zodiac boat tour to search for feeding bears and ancient petroglyphs.

Owned and operated by the Homalco First Nation, all tours are led by a Homalco guide to provide a full First Nations interpretation. The Homalco Culture is woven together by their people, land, and wildlife; as strong stewards of their territories, storytellers of their history, and sharers of their knowledge, they welcome guests to their traditional territory and hope that visiting will create advocates for their land and culture, while carrying forward their traditional ways of life for the nation’s youth.

Whales, Wildlife & Culture

This exclusive, small group marine experience offers a journey of discovery focused on large marine mammals-WHALES- combined with a fascinating view into the world of local First Nations. Taking place aboard our brand-new, custom-designed 12-passenger tour boats, Homalco Tours vessels are unlike any other. Our landing craft design provides the ability to access the Discovery Islands on our 4-hour tours, while providing a truly unique experience for guests with TWO seats for every passenger! You have the option to select your Comfort Seat inside the luxury cabin or an outdoor Adventure Seat at the front of the vessel, allowing for a safer COVID-friendly tour. All guests who wish to ride outside have access to warm survival suits and floater jackets. Homalco Wildlife & Cultural Tours is Indigenous owned and operated and is complimented with a unique Indigenous perspective on your marine wildlife experience.
