At the end of the tour you can warm up with a great coffee and snack at a local Cafe.
The launch for this trip is 15 minutes north of Sooke on the shores of beautiful Muir Creek. On this tour you can expect to see eagles, seals and possibly whales. Afterwards we can stroll down the beach looking for fossils.
