Helicopter, Whale and Glacier Tour

A private helicopter will whisk you over the lush forests and churning waters of Vancouver Island and Johnstone Strait to Port McNeill where you will board a 55ft passenger vessel for an incredible wilderness viewing experience. Orca and Humpback whales, Pacific white-sided dolphins, Dall’s porpoises, Harbor seals, Steller sea lions, Bald eagles and a variety of other birds are no strangers to this tour.

On your return journey to Sonora Resort, soar over glacier fjords and snow-covered peaks. Enjoy the breathtaking views or extend your tour to touch down on a glacier or remote mountaintop so you can take in the 360° view and enjoy a light snack.

This tour departs at 8:30am. Charter tours can be customized to your interests and are guided by weather and visibility conditions.
