Vancouver Whale Watching Tours

Orca Whale Watching in Vancouver with hotel pick-up

The Pacific North West is teeming with sea life, including several species of whales and dolphins. The most magnificent of them all are the Killer whales, otherwise known as Orcas.

Experience the excitement of our Vancouver Whale Watching tours! Admire the Orcas in Vancouver on a Vancouver whale watching tour with the convenience of pick-up from your hotel. The trip is about 6 hours long, with sighting chances of 85 per cent.

The boat leaves from Granville Island and you will have some time to explore this famous Vancouver attraction.

You’ll travel comfortably protected from the elements in covered, high-speed boats, equipped with washroom facilities. Bottled water is available free of charge. An on-board lunch is provided free of charge. You will be back in Vancouver in the late afternoon.

Orca’s or Killer whales can be seen from Vancouver between April and October – other marine wild life you are likely to encounter include Gray Whales, Humpback whales, Dall’s Porpoises, seals, sea lions, and bald eagles.

Guarantee: Sighting chances are 85 per cent. If you don’t see whales, your next trip is free, but $50 is charged to cover transportation.

When you’re in BC whale watching, the best time to see Gray Whales is in April and May – when they migrate North from Mexico to the Arctic and then in the fall when they return. Minke Whales are seen occasionally throughout the season, Dalls porpoises also frequent the local waters all year round. Humpback whales can be seen in September and October.

My daughter and I really enjoyed whale watching trip.Every staff member was very nice and friendly. Thank you very much. Frances Rodriguez, Hawaiian Gardens. CA

The entire trip was handled really well door to door. We will never forget seeing the killer whales. Dennis Tobin, Toronto, ON.
