No matter what departure time you choose for this tour — 9a.m., 10a.m., or 11a.m. — make sure to meet about 45 minutes before your starting time. Please note that the 9a.m. departure time isn’t offered during October.
Your tour takes off from Vancouver’s historical Granville Island. Board a boat, and listen to your guide as he or she tells you a little about how the day should go. This tour can last anywhere from three to seven hours, and timing all depends on when you see whales. Your guide tells you fun facts about sea life, as you search for killer whales, humpback whales, seals, sea lions, and sea birds.
After you and your group have had enough excitement for the day — with whale sightings under your belt — you’ll head back toward Granville Island. Say goodbye to your guide at the island, and the next step is up to you.
