What You Can Expect

Vancouver Snorkel and Kayak Adventure: Snorkel with Seals

Local residents - Pacific Harbour Seal and her pup

Make your way to the expedition center in Horseshoe Bay, where you'll board the boat for your 5-hour adventure on the water. Set off to the North, traveling to Howe Sound's Pam Rocks, home to the resident seal colony. 

Snap photos of the harbor seals sunning themselves on the rocks and moving effortlessly through the water. Harbor seals can grow up to 6 feet (1.8 meters) in length and are known to be docile and curious. 

Don a provided wet suit and snorkel gear, then slip into the water and watch the seals from a respectful distance under the supervision of your snorkel guide. Chances are, the seals will want to check out their visitors; you and your group will follow their lead and your guide will ensure your safety. Kayakers will climb into their boats and float nearby; the seals may bob along the surface next to the kayaks or swim playfully underneath. Switch between kayaking and snorkeling, or simply stay on the boat and watch the show. No snorkeling or kayaking experience is necessary.

This excursion includes snacks, hot soup, and cold drinks, all of which can be enjoyed while cruising back to Horseshoe Bay, admiring ocean and mountain scenery of Howe Sound.

Your tour ends up back at your departure point in Horseshoe Bay after 5 hours.

I would highly recommend this trip! I went solo and was a little nervous about it but it was absolutely amazing. The instructors were extremely helpful and went above any beyond to make sure we all had an enjoyable trip. Did I mention we saw tonnes of seals and even two bald eagles??

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2016

If you like snorkelling or water sports/activities, I highly recommend this. Kevin and Bob were friendly, took the time to tell us about the wildlife where we snorkelled. The scenery, wildlife and most importantly proximity to Vancouver city is unbeatable. In my opinion, a must do if you visit Vancouver. If I'm back in Vancouver, I'm definitely doing this again!
