Vancouver: Whale Watching
A multicultural metropolis with snowcapped crags, city-hugging beaches and waterfront forests
Vancouver is ideally placed for whale watching tours, and quite a few companies offer boat trips out to observe them. Trips tend to last from 3-7 hours and will take you out into the Gulf of Georgia in search of whale pods and other marine wildlife. Companies such as Wild Whales Vancouver take tours out daily, although Wild Whales are the only company to operate from the downtown area, running from a base on Granville Island.
