What Our Adventurers Are Saying

“Phenomenal, this was the best birthday I’ve ever had and a life-long dream made real. Raphael and Shauna really went above and beyond to educate and get us the experience of a lifetime. The ride was a blast and we managed to see a Humpback and a whole pod of Orcas. I hope I can make it back to B.C. in the future to tour again.”
Jay
“We originally booked with another company, but they had cancelled on us so we went down to Steveston and I’m so glad we did. With such knowledgeable staff who are so connected with the area and wildlife that inhabits the coast, we had an amazing time on our Seabreeze tour. 10/10 would recommend taking the trip out of the city to have a fully immersed experience from beginning to end.”
Pete P
“We saw orcas super up close, as well as harbour seals and tons of Steller sea lions. I did the semi-enclosed tour and can vouch for it. The boat was not crowded even though we went on a Saturday. Everyone could stand outside to get a direct view, but also duck inside when it was too cold.”
Jean L
“We had a great time! My son and I wanted to do something fun for a summer day out and this was perfect. We saw Orcas, humpback whale and seals and sea lions! Raphael and Shauna were great with all the information and a safe zodiac ride!”
Amie F
“Our boat had 20 people plus the captain and naturalist. We saw about half a dozen other whale watching tour boats out on the water and they were beyond crowded! I’m so glad I chose this company! We had lots of room, and freedom to move around the boat. Thank you so much for this unforgettable experience!”
Courtney L
“Our adventure was off-the-charts incredible! Our guide was an absolute treasure trove of knowledge and shared all sorts of fun facts about the species we spotted. Even though we went for the wild ride with the Zodiac boat, I thought I might get a little queasy, but it was an absolute delight! We're already planning our next voyage!”
Trixie Z
“My husband and I booked a whale watching experience for our honeymoon. It was an awesome experience! Richard (Captain) and Camryn (Naturalist) were enthusiastic and super knowledgeable allowing us to have the best experience possible. Cherry on the cake was meeting two humpback whales. 10/10!”
Ria
“Had a great afternoon out on the boat Crazy Legs with Captain and Noah. We got a chance to watch, for well over an hour, a killer whale pod of 6. Wonderful day to be a tourist in our own city. Highly recommend. Not only that, the area of Steveston is wonderful. Worth the drive down to cruise with the Seabreeze Adventures Team!”
Jodi H
“10/10 excellent captain, excellent crew, excellent vessel! You will not be disappointed with this company. Amazing experience. I've been on a few whale watching boats in the past but these guys go above and beyond to create the perfect experience. Will be booking again!”
Nathan G
“Captain Scott and Naturalist Selena took us for an amazing trip today! We saw a humpback whale mum and baby nursing, seals lounging around, sea lions on a marker and most amazingly at least two pods of Orcas hunting and feeding! It was an excellent trip, Selena and Scott were so friendly and clearly knew their stuff about the marine life and the local area.”
