Sightseers whale watching (Canadian Tourism Commission photo)
Vancouver whale-watching tours offer breathtaking scenery and wildlife viewing just minutes from a major urban centre.
Upon leaving the dock, passengers are surrounded by incredible coastal settings and have the opportunity to see Orcas (killer whales), grey whales, humpback whales, minke whales, and other marine life like porpoises, dolphins and seabirds.
On a whale-watching tour, it's possible to see Orcas breaching, spyhopping and hunting. Use onboard charts to identify individual whales, and listen through hydrophones to hear whales communicating underwater.
Whale-watching tours depart from downtown Vancouver and from nearby Steveston, located at the mouth of the Fraser River in Richmond, with whales generally seen in the waters of the Georgia Strait, Gulf Islands or San Juan Islands.
