harbor seals who love to sun themselves on the rocks close to shore. Arrive at your first destination, Bowen Island. Treat yourself to some ice cream or a coffee while exploring this quaint little town. Our second destination is Gibson's Landing, which serves as the marine gateway to the Sunshine Coast.

Vancouver Whale Watching Adventure

From the Convention Centre in Downtown Vancouver, you will board one of our fully enclosed and weather protected vessels.  Our vessels are equipped with comfortable aircraft reclining seats and onboard washrooms.  We also offer plenty of outdoor deck space! Join us on this epic adventure as we navigate Howe Sound Waters and observe whales in their natural habitat. There are three species commonly seen in the Georgia Straight. The southern resident killer whales who feed off salmon which spawn here in the summer, transient killer whales who migrate up and down the coast in search of food, and the Humpback Whales who travel here in the summer to early fall and feed off the small fish in the harbour. Humpback
whales can range in size up to 55 feet and weigh up to 40 tons. All whales are intelligent and have individual personalities. Some are curious and may approach the vessel to look us over, while others are shy and will keep away. Our crew will be able to identify the groups and sometimes individual whales for reference. Our crew and staff will go out of their way to ensure that you get the best experience by pointing out a variety of wild life spotted along the way such as: harbour seals, sea lions, sea birds, and eagles. The onboard guide will engage you with points of interest, historical and fun facts of the city and of course impress you with their knowledge of the wild species you will get to see while on board.
In addition to learning about the history and biology of the sea, you are guaranteed to indulge on the breathtaking views of some of the majestic mountains along the water.  Views that can only be seen from the water!
