Explore the beauty that is British Columbia on this half-day whale-watching excursion from Vancouver. Step aboard the flagship vessel ‘Ocean Magic’ in Downtown Vancouver for the adventure of a lifetime. In true comfort and style, the crew is excited to explore the local waters in search of the majestic wildlife that floods the local waters here in the summer months. Enjoy views of the Gulf Islands, San Juan Islands, and Howe Sound while learning about the local geology and marine life along the way.

On this 3 to 5 hour whale watching adventure, take advantage of the opportunity to view several different species of whales in the wild as well as an assortment of sea birds and other species of marine wildlife from Downtown Vancouver. This tour departs from the Westin Bayshore Hotel in the heart of the city of Vancouver, located within walking distance from all major hotels in the area.

Travel in comfort and ease aboard a 62-foot, purpose-built, whale-watching vessel, designed to minimize the ecological footprint without reducing performance.
