Wildlife Watching Boat Tours with Browning Pass Charters

Browning Pass Charters offers wildlife boat tours year round. Different animals will be living along the forest at the waters edge  or in the water at different times throughout the year.

Bear Watching

Watch bears foraging along the shoreline from May to October at the low tides.

 Please check our Bear Watching page for more information.

Bald Eagles

Bald eagles take residence throughout many locations within Clayoquot Sound.


While there is no guarantee of spotting wolves on any of our charters; depending on the time of year, wolves may be spotted along the shorelines of the islands within Clayoquot Sound.

Sea Lions

Big, bold, beautiful sea lions make their way into the inlets of Clayoquot Sound in the late winter and early spring. During the summer months sea lions move offshore. Browning Pass Charters takes you to the sea lions as they bask in the sunshine on rocky outcrops moving in and out of the water to fish and play.
