About Us

Aboriginal Journeys is a 100% Indigenous family owned wildlife viewing and adventure tour company located in Campbell River on Vancouver Island, British Columbia. We operate our tours  within the traditional territories  of the Laichwiltach  and  Coast Salish  peoples.

Your tours are guided by locally born residents and certified boating professionals. You can be assured that you are in very knowledgeable and capable hands as the genuine care, comfort, and safety of our guests is always our first mission.

Enjoy a comfortable journey aboard our 27-foot covered high-speed tour boat with an open viewing deck and an onboard washroom. The vessel has twin engines and can carry up tp 10 passengers and is fully equipped with all the proper navigation and safety equipment. Even on a rainy day, you’ll be warm and dry inside.

We look forward in  creating long-lasting memories for you and your loved ones. Come and be a part of our family and join us for a journey into this spiritual, mystical, and natural world.
