Orca and Humpback Whale Encounters

Take a deep breath, leave the city behind, and step onboard as we discover wide open spaces, spectacular rugged coastline, snow capped mountains and British Columbia's iconic wildlife.

Orca, Humpback, Gray and Minke whales rise from the deep. Seals, sea lions and elephant seals hunt and are hunted. Eagles soar. The mists roll over the spectacular temperate rainforest and the sun breaks through to spotlight a chattering flock of gulls, rising, startled by a whales blow and sudden appearance.
