What’s better than going on a whale watching trip to spend some fun quality time with your loved ones? Our guests were lucky enough to see these humpbacks breaching and spy hopping over and over again! Many people think that they have to go to Vancouver Island to see whales and orcas but you don’t need to go that far. Our boats leave from Steveston (South of Richmond), an old fishing village that is now very popular and touristic. It is the perfect location to go whale watching as we are very close to the Straight of Georgia and the Gulf Islands! Next time you’re visiting Vancouver, make sure to come and visit us! 🎥: @valepe23 #vancouverwhalewatch #whalewatchingtour #stevestonbc #richmondmoments #hellobc #humpbackwhale #breachingwhale #veryvancouver #vancouverbc #britishcolumbia #canadatourism #wildlifeencounters ...

We missed a Friday Fun Fact but we are back with one today!Transient orcas along the entire coast of British Columbia all use a distinctive set of calls, with some additional calls that can be specific to a region. For example, killer whales from BC and killer whales in Norway will use completely different types of calls and sounds (pulsing whistles, clicks and calls).Transients tend to do calls after successful hunts or when multiple matrilines are present and they are socializing. Otherwise, they tend to be quieter because they are hunting marine mammals and want to be able to sneak up on their prey.The bump on their head (the melon) is used for echolocation to know if there is prey in the area.📸: @sebastianvelasquezphoto#vancouverwhalewatch #transientorcas #straightofgeorgia #whalewatchingtour #tourismrichmond #orcasofinstagram #daytripideas #holidayactivities #steveston #wildlifeconservation #vancitynow ...

Our first week of whale watching was a success! We’re all so happy to be back out there looking for the whales and they weren’t shy. We’ve found them every day we were out on the water. It’s been an exhilarating and exciting first week but we can’t deny that it has been pretty chilly! Rest assured that we have extra complimentary coats that you can take with you on the boat for extra layers. Better be comfortable and warm when you’re out on the water looking for whales. The orcas were pretty playful this week, especially on Sunday when they had a gathering! Two babies also made an appearance on Saturday, which we absolutely love to see!#whalewatchingtour #vancouverwhalewatch #wildlifeencounters #killerwhalesofinstagram #explorevancouver #vancouveractivities #veryvancouver #stevestonvillage #richmondmoments ...

Here we are for another Friday Fun Fact!Did you know that seals (Photo 2), also known as “earless”, don’t have any external ear flaps? They have little ear holes. They can hear very well above and under the water. Sea lions (Photo 1), on the other hand, have tiny little flaps covering their ears. Seal lions are also a lot louder than seals as they bark.First 📸: @mangajin70Second 📸: Andy Scheffler#vancouverwhalewatch #stevestonbc #funfactoftheday #marinelifephotography #veryvancouver #hellobc #richmondmoments #sealsofinstagram #seallions ...

We are starting a new series called Fun Fact Friday! If you want to learn new facts about marine life, this is for you!Our first Fun Fact Friday is about humpbacks. Did you know they have one of the longest migration on the planet?Some travel as far as 5,000 miles (8,000km) a year between their breeding / nursing grounds and feeding grounds. As there is no food in the former, they have to eat as much as possible before starting their migration.📸: @sebastianvelasquezphoto #humpbackwhales #humpbackmigration #vancouverwhalewatch #conservationthrougheducation #environmentalawareness #protectouroceans #whalewatchingtour #ecotourism #SaveTheWhales #explorebc #vancouverbc ...
