I will be in BC for about 2 weeks in September and would like to do some whale watching. I would love love love to do it by kayak, but I don't think I can afford to do a multi-day trip and I'm not sure how high the chances are that I will actually see whales during a one-day trip.
My question is, do you think it's worth it to spend more money and do the multi-day kayak trip anyway, or will it be really nice by boat with an organisation as well (and do just a day of kayaking)? I can imagine it would be very touristy on a boat.
Also, is Vancouver (or up the coast a bit) better for whale watching by kayak or somewhere on Vancouver Island, since I will be staying in both places anyway?
Which place is nicer for kayaking (more isolated, more beautiful surroundings), regardless of whales?
Thank you in advance!
