Sightseers whale watching (Canadian Tourism Commission photo)
Take a whale-watching trip in the Vancouver, Coast & Mountains region and experience the thrill of seeing Orcas (killer whales) in the wild.
Orcas are the most commonly sighted whale here, but grey, humpback and minke whales are also seen. On a guided whale-watching trip, get close enough to see the signature white markings that are unique to each Orca.
Whale-watching trips from this region head out towards southen Vancouver Island to spot the resident Orcas that return to the same waters year after year. These Orcas are easily identified – and even named – with onboard ID charts. Hydrophones allow passengers to “listen in” as the whales communicate with each other with their unique vocalizations.
