Overview
Embark on a guided whale-watching tour where you can learn about the surrounding marine life while looking for killer whales, humpbacks, seals, and porpoises. By departing from Stevenson (hotel pickup offered in Vancouver and Richmond) you can expect a much shorter boat ride to the whales. This means you have more time to enjoy the presence of the majestic creatures.
Highlights
  • Explore the Strait of Georgia and Gulf Islands on a whale-watching excursion outside of Vancouver
  • Live commentary increases your knowledge of the surroundings and marine life
  • The tours have a high whale-sighting success rate, but if you don’t see whales you can go again for free
  • Multiple daily start times make it easy to fit the tour into your schedule

Family had an excellent time in the semi-enclosed boat. Our guide was fantastic. Captain took us to two different areas to view wales plus two other areas to view sea lions. Wonderful experience.

This whale watching cruise used an open vessel the day I went because of the excellent weather. This is NOT the tour for you if you want an inflatable with a motor and life vests kind of experience, which I did NOT want. The naturalist on board was a very nice environmental
