Everyone was super nice and organized. Andy was a great tour guide with great information. And, we saw orcas and sea lions up close (the orcas actually came up to us closer than this pic).
After a scenic 35-minute ride from Downtown Vancouver, arrive in the charming center of Steveston Heritage Fishing Village. Door-to-door shuttle service from your hotel is available, if the option is selected, as well as free parking for those who drive. Tours depart rain or shine, as all boats are equipped with both open decks and covered cabins. Snap photos in the serene waters of the Gulf Islands, while an expert in marine biology gives you an overview of the animals in the area.
The captain navigates to the best spots for orca sightings, and the onboard naturalist ensures you don’t miss out on seeing a variety of sea creatures, including orcas, sea lions, and porpoises. Complimentary hydrophones give you a rare opportunity to hear whale calls in real time.
Enjoy a snack on board before docking back in Steveston Village, the perfect place for a relaxing afternoon, or hop back on the shuttle to your Vancouver hotel.

We went out on a zodiac boat with our party of eight and this in itself was a great experience - very exhilarating and we needed the thick and warm waterproofs provided. Our captain, Carl, worked hard to find us wildlife in the shape of...More
