Killer whales (also known as orcas) migrate to coastal British Columbia between May and October to feed on the salmon that return to the Fraser River to spawn. There are three pods (families) of approximately 80 killer whales that return to the area every year, meaning sightings are almost guaranteed. The vessels used on this whale-watching tour are open-air or covered high-speed zodiac boats that ensure a smooth and comfortable trip whatever the weather! On your thrilling expedition, you will hear illuminating commentary delivered by professional naturalists, and you’ll see the magnificent orca in its natural habitat. Onboard hydrophones allow you to experience the wild calls of the orcas first hand, and photo ID charts will even help you to identify them. Look out for the orca named Granny, believed to be over 100 years old! Air-conditioned shuttle transportation is available from nine centrally located pickup points in downtown Vancouver, and free parking is available in Steveston Village for those arriving by car. Don’t miss this extraordinary rendezvous with nature on the southwest coast of Canada! GUARANTEED WHALE SIGHTINGS OR YOUR NEXT TRIP IS FREE!
