5 horas de passeio de barco, mergulho com snorkel e caiaque em Vancouver
Snorkel e caiaque entre as focas em Pam Rocks
Todo o equipamento incluído; sem experiência de caiaque ou snorkeling
A única opção de turismo permite que você permaneça no barco
Faça o seu caminho para o centro de expedição em Horseshoe Bay, onde você vai embarcar no barco para a sua aventura de 5 horas na água. Parta para o norte, viajando para Pam Rocks de Howe Sound, lar da colônia de focas residente.
Tire fotos das focas do porto tomando sol nas rochas e movendo-se sem esforço pela água. As focas podem crescer até 6 pés (1,8 metros) de comprimento e são conhecidas por serem dóceis e curiosas.
Não use roupa de mergulho e equipamento de snorkel, então entre na água e observe os selos a uma distância respeitosa sob a supervisão de seu guia de snorkel. As chances são, os selos vão querer verificar seus visitantes; você e seu grupo seguirão o exemplo e seu guia garantirá sua segurança. Kayakers vão subir em seus barcos e flutuar nas proximidades; os selos podem balançar ao longo da superfície ao lado dos caiaques ou nadar embaixo. Alterne entre caiaque e mergulho, ou simplesmente fique no barco e assista ao espetáculo. Nenhuma experiência de snorkeling ou caiaque é necessária.
Essa excursão inclui lanches, sopa quente e bebidas geladas, que podem ser apreciadas enquanto você volta para Horseshoe Bay, admirando o oceano e o cenário montanhoso de Howe Sound.
Sua excursão termina em seu ponto de partida em Horseshoe Bay após 5 horas.

Seals in their normal habitat - lots of Them. Great crew and just a wonderfull experience. Recommendable.
This is definitely something fun and unique. This is the only company offering this type of experience so I recommend them. Otherwise I would look for a different company. They were very hesitant to let me wear a wetsuit larger than the one they picked out for me. I could barely get it on and could not lift my arms more than halfway which made kayaking difficult. Not enough room on boat for everyone to sit down and a small dirty cooler to dispense water. You spend at least half the time on the boat so it needs to be comfortable. As this is the only option, so they probably won’t make improvements.
This was the best ! My teen aged son and I loved every mn of it : the swimming with the seals, the kayaking with the seals, we even got to see orcas. The captain and the crew are a super team! The boat and the equipment are great. It was a highlight of our vacation. Thanks
Swimming with harbour seals is the best way to spend an afternoon, especially when a baby seal wants to come and play. Grace who was our guide had to swim it back to the colony. I had never snorkled or kayaked but that was not a problem and floatation jackets are available if you are not a competent swimmer. Hot soup and snacks were available. It was great fun and the staff were great.
This was an awesome excursion! I arrived at the store from a block away from the dock an hour before the excursion, they got me fitted and in a wetsuit, then right on time we walked to the dock to get on the boat. I went on Canada Day, and perhaps because it is a holiday we had a small group of 8, they did say they usually have 20, but I cannot imagine having all those people. It was nice with a small group. On the 40 minute boat ride to the first stop, you could sit up top if you were lucky, and the views are beautiful.
Once we got to our first stop, but boat dropped us off near an island and we swam toward the cove where the seals are in our full wetsuits complete with gloves and booties, fins and a mask. Although it says snorkeling, and you can snorkel a bit, it is mostly a floating trip at this point. The water was not clear enough to snorkel. When we got to the small cove where the seals sunbathe, they quickly noticed us and got in the water. Every once in a while, you would see them on the water level popping their heads up. THis was really the encounter with them. They do not get super close, and you will definitely not really be swimming with them, but it is still a cool experience.
On the way to the second stop, they make you soup, and have chips and Chewy bars for snacking. At the second stop of the trip, we went to another larger nearby island and had the chance to snorkel more, or kayak there were 6 kayaks or paddleboard 1 on board. Is there was a large group, you would have to take turns and I am glad we did not have to. I chose the paddleboard and we were able to paddle at our own pace along the big cliffs and rocky shore. Two kayakers and I were lucky enough to see some seals on the rocks for somewhere around a minute, then they got scared and got into the water. A short while later, all of the kayakers and I were floating near the shoreline/cliffs when several seals occasionally popped their heads up around us. We all stayed still and this went on for about 15 minutes. The closest one got to me was probably 10 feet away.
All in all, I am very glad I did this. The staff and boat captain were very friendly and welcoming, and even just the scenery out of Horseshoe Bay was amazing. I had to take the bus from the city, and while I Was worried about the logistics of it all, it was no problem try to get on at the first bus stop though, otherwise the bus may fill up and you may not be able to get on until the next one.
My experience was not great. The group was huge which I think limited the ability for half of us to see seals up close, sadly I was in the second group so by the time my group was in the water the first group was with the seals and than they were gone. Also, my guide had her family with her and was more concerned about her family than anyone else. Ive seen seals closer from kayaks and boats and would not call with a snorkel with seals adventure at all. Very disappointed.
Fantastic people! Very friendly staff makes this a star of our trip to Canada. My kids loved it! If you want to have a good picture from the boat of what your family is doing in the water, bring a big telephoto lens with good tripod. 325mm turned out not to be enough! Plenty of snacks were offered at no extra charge, so was soup and hot chocolate. We loved this.
