Tour Details

Embark on an exciting sea adventure that transports you from downtown Vancouver in search of orcas, humpback whales, and more along the Salish Sea when you book this half day whale excursion in Vancouver. This scenic sea excursion is perfect for outdoor enthusiasts who want the chance to see various species of seabirds, whales, and other marine creatures out in their natural habits. Your scenic half day cruise offers 4.5 hours of fun with the chance to enjoy sailing across the Salish Sea aboard a custom built express cruiser that holds up to 74 people with three different viewing platforms to get a chance to see marine wildlife like humpback whales and orcas. Enjoy complimentary beverages like coffee and hot chocolate as you listen to your certified marine naturalist guide and boat driver share interesting facts about the locations and marine wildlife you'll see.

Start your sea adventure by catching a brief 20 minute taxi ride (at your own expense) to the Vancouver Granville Island Centre to meet up with your guide. Then, hop aboard the custom-built catamaran for a comfortable cruise that takes you sailing across the Salish Sea from downtown Vancouver. Your luxury catamaran gives you three different platforms to choose from two different heights so you can capture stunning views of the Strait of Georgia and Howe Sound's glistening waters. Grab your camera as you take in the gorgeous water views and watch seabirds and bald eagles soar by during this relaxing whale-watching adventure.

Continue your seasonal half day marine excursion as your certified marine naturalist and guide shares interesting facts about the humpback whales and orcas you'll see as you sail along the Salish Sea. Orcas, or killer whales, are common in British Columbia's western waters and the males are as heavy as 22,000 pounds. Finish your scenic excursion enjoying the complimentary hot chocolate, tea, or coffee or buy the delicious chips, cookies, and other snacks on board as you warm up in the heated cabin and reminisce about your scenic tour.

From watching whales pass by to catching scenic views of the city and the Salish Sea, this whale watching excursion is one you won't want to miss. Book your spot on this half-day whale watching cruise today for a grand time in Vancouver.
