Watch for orca, gray and humpback whales on a full-day wildlife safari from Vancouver on a comfortable, covered boat. Learn about the whales’ lives, behavior and migration patterns from a trained naturalist, and try to spot the dolphins, seals, sea lions and bald eagles that thrive along the Pacific Coast. Whales are sighted on 85% of trips.

What to expect?

Every summer, some 80 orca whales visit the waters around Vancouver. View these intelligent animals in their natural habitat on a high-speed sea safari. Travel in comfortable, covered boats through spectacular west coast scenery. Other marine wildlife includes dolphins, seals, sea lions, and bald eagles, as well as some of the finest Pacific Northwest island scenery.

Gray and humpback whales migrate along the west coast in spring and fall when there is a high likelihood to see them as well. Sighting chances of whales are 85 percent. If no whales are spotted, the next trip is free.

Included in the tour price is a pickup from and return to any accommodation in Vancouver, as well as a visit to Vancouver’s famous peninsula.

During the summer months, whale watching is very popular, so it's recommended to book at least a week in advance to avoid disappointment.
