Whale watching, Gulf Islands (Tom Ryan photo)
Whale watching in British Columbia is an extraordinary experience. Set out on a whale-watching tour to spot Orcas (killer whales), humpback whales, Pacific grey whales – all in their natural habitats.
Whale-watching opportunities abound May through October, and tours leave from major cities such as Vancouver and Victoria, along with more remote locations such as Northern BC and off the north and west coasts of Vancouver Island (named by Travel + Leisure magazine as one of North America’s Best Whale Watching Spots in 2010).
Choose from a range of whale-watching tours, such as a few hours on an open-air high-speed Zodiac; a full day spent on a comfortable cruiser with indoor seating and spacious viewing deck; or even a historic sailboat for a week-long luxury adventure.
