Vancouver Cruises and Water Tours
By Viator, June 2011
The fierce yet adorable orca, or killer whale, frequents the waters around Vancouver. That perfect moment when you see it breach from the water, showing off and having fun, is an incredible experience. The Vancouver Whale-Watching Tour will take you to the best places to spot these magnificent creatures. Along with orcas, you may also see bald eagles, seals, sea lions and porpoises.
Sea Safari Cruise
Harbor seals and bald eagles are the highlights of the Howe Sound Sea Safari Cruise. See for yourself the scenery and wildlife that make the Vancouver area so renowned with nature-lovers. Zoom across Horseshoe Bay (at Howe Sound’s entrance) and through the waters of the Strait of Georgia. Cruise beside steep cliffs, along caves and past Pam Rocks, a popular place for harbor seals to sunbathe.
Vancouver by Seaplane
A seaplane ride from Vancouver to Victoria, on Vancouver Island, will give you the ultimate in Vancouver views. Take off from the harbor and admire the city from the air as you soar across the Gulf Islands. The views are unparalleled. You’ll get an idea of how magical Vancouver is and get a better perspective on just how much water surrounds it (a lot!). In Victoria, explore the Butchart Gardens or wander around the quaint shops and cafés.
Vancouver Harbour Cruises
The relaxing Vancouver Harbour cruises allow for a tamer, yet just as fascinating, cruising experience. You’ll glide along the Vancouver city skyline, enjoying lunch, dinner, drinks, the sunset and more. Choose between the Sunset Dinner Cruise, the Indian Arm Lunch Cruise or the Sightseeing Cruise.
