Sidney Spit Tour

Birds of a Feather’s Zodiac Medline III based in Victoria is available for private charter transport (water taxi) to and from Sidney Spit. We are also available for marine eco-tour charters, or simply boating the west coast.

 Coast Salish Legend:

The story goes that "Mutcha" was a giant mink transformed by the spirit God Swaneset, because of its uncontrollable greed. The long sand spit is Mutcha’s tail, while the beaches are its belly and back.

Sidney Spit is located within the 400-hectare Sidney Island Marine Park. The long sandy spit and adjacent lagoon, forests and open grasslands offer a surprising variety of wildlife and are some of the most important shorebird habitat near southern Vancouver Island.

Thanks for a lovely holiday

We had a wonderful 5 day stay at the Birds of a Feather. We enjoyed all that this area had to offer, from the beautiful sunrise, the abundant wildlife and amazing scenery, the lazy sunsets. The advice that Dieter gave us was invaluable. Had we not taken this advice we would have missed a most exciting whale watching trip. We were lucky enough to encounter a super pod. Everywhere you looked, you saw whales performing all sorts of acrobatics. It was perfect. The gardens at Hatley Castle also provided us with photo opportunities. We saw peacock families as well as hummingbirds. Well worth a visit. Thanks for a lovely holiday.
