Located on the Pacific Coast, the Vancouver area is lucky enough to be the watery home for many local Orca whales (also known as Killer whales), as well as being on the migratory route for a variety of other whales, such as the majestic grey and impressive humpback. Whale watching occurs throughout the year, generally running half days (3-5 hours) with the opportunity to view whales, dolphins, sea lions, seals and eagles as boats tour the coast of Vancouver.
Viewing a whale in the wild is a truly awe-inspiring experience - one not to be forgotten, and always with great photo opportunities. Tour boats can range from high speed zodiacs, fully equipped cruisers, to larger-scale cruise ships. Most tours offer such knowledgeable guides that you can expect a highly informative narrative - some even have onboard naturalists!
