Whale Watching and Eco-Tours!
Please note: We are now closed for our 2015 whale watching season. Thank you all for a wonderful year! You can still find information about our tours here and we will check emails periodically if you would like to contact us with additional questions. See you all in 2016!
Just South of Vancouver, in the quaint Historic fishing village of Steveston you’ll find a gateway to some of the best whale watching Vancouver has to offer! Have you ever dreamed of seeing some of the world’s largest creatures in their natural habitat? Or wondered how to get a ‘seal’s eye view’ of the beautiful BC coast?
Spend the day on the water cruising the coast looking for whales, porpoises and other marine mammals and seabirds in one of the most beautiful places in the world then you’ve come to the right place! Whether visiting the West Coast from out of town, or if you’re a local, this is a great way to gain an educational, informative experience you’ll never forget!
Steveston Village is a destination not to be missed and is home to a myriad of shops and restaurants for all tastes, a perfect location to begin and end your Vancouver whale watching adventure.
Locally owned and operated, Steveston Seabreeze Adventures offers tours from April 1st to October 31st. Join us for an exhilarating ride aboard our 40-foot semi-covered vessels accommodating groups of 23 passengers, offering comfortable inside seating and unrestricted outside viewing. Our vessels are coastguard certified and our Captains have extensive BC and Vancouver whale watching experience. We can accommodate up to 69 passengers in our 3 vessels. We have a certified naturalist/interpreter on board and hydrophones to hear the whales vocalize.
What to Expect
Once you arrive at our office (at least half an hour before your trip) you’ll be greeted by our friendly office staff where you will sign in, pay and get your boarding passes. Once everyone’s arrived your Naturalist and Captain will lead you onto your boat and go over safety information before you depart. Once you’re on your way you’ll pass by the historic Steveston Village harbour along the south arm of the Fraser River and continue on towards the Gulf of Georgia where you will look for some of the marine life living along our coast! Our whale watching trips are not only fun but educational as well, and our Naturalists will explain all about the animals we see while they collect valuable data on the marine mammals sighted during these trips such as geographical coordinates, abundance, behavior and individuals’ identification when possible. On board, you will also find maps and books about BC whales and other marine life.
Our goal on our tours is to observe whales and marine life responsibly in their natural environment and to share that experience with you. We strive to educate our passengers about the whales we see and hope to leave you with an experience that will help you better understand these incredible creatures and how we can all help to ensure a better future for these and other marine mammals in our ecosystem.
Many locals have yet to discover that this can be done so close to home and many of those who have, keep coming back! Come and experience the warmth and hospitality of Steveston Seabreeze Adventures.
