I took a trip on the open boat with Sally and Drew. We were very fortunate to see a pod of southern resident orcas during their feeding time - we drifted/followed them for an hour. Sally was a knowledgable and friendly guide, and her enthusiasm...More

Great experience. Almost 7 hours on the boat. Thank you Ashley and your captain for that. Absolutely "must do" in Vancouver.

It is a spectacular experience, to see free animals, whales, harbors seals. The guides were very friendly and cheerful.

One of the favoured neighbourhoods for a day out,
Granville Island's packed theatres and art studios,
hobby shops and book stores, restaurants and bars, all
offer a plethora of activities and entertainment
options, leaving no one bored. The highlight of the
area is the Fisherman's Wharf, where the seagulls
