Our Mermaid tours in Porpoise Bay are a quick cost effective way to experience the true wilderness of our Super Natural coast. Porpoise Bay is at the very sheltered end of Sechelt Inlet – it is a unique area, both for the oceanography and the geology. It is rich with history from the shishálh Nation. This is the natural focal centre of our Coast and is the access point for a huge wilderness area around our Inland Sea.
As with all our tours, the knowledgeable boat operator will point out the most interesting features for you to enjoy. Choose from 2 times for the Mermaid Tour or the more in-depth cultural outings that feature a host from the shishálh Nation.
