Our most recommended British Columbia Speed & Jet Boat Tours

Vancouver: City and Seal Boat Tour

1. Vancouver: City and Seal Boat Tour

Jump into a boat for a 1.5-hours to see the city and its seals. Embark on an adventure you won't forget and travel along the epic coastline of the English Bay, out to Lighthouse Park, over to the Seal Colony, and back into False Creek. Take in the sights of Stanley Park from the water throughout the journey. Pass by English Bay Beach and underneath the iconic Lions Gate Bridge.  Marvel at the beautiful homes of West Vancouver, offshore freighters, and Seal Colony along the coast. Make your way past Siwash Rock, Jericho Sailing Centre, and Kitsilano Beach. All of the boat tours depart from the Granville Island Location.

West Vancouver: Howe Sound and Bowen Speedboat Tour

2. West Vancouver: Howe Sound and Bowen Speedboat Tour

Join the Bowen Explorer Tour and marvel with the Howe Sound islands, an amazing adventure to bird sanctuaries, harbour seal rookeries, and sea caves. Finish with a short visit of Snug Cove on Bowen Island. Soar up the coastline with the eagles, farther north than our trip has ever gone before. As we travel this deep into the sound, your guide will explain about this extraordinary ecosystem that is home to harbour seals, bald eagles, oyster catchers and many other creatures and organisms. The trip will still highlight the wildlife of the sound: seals at Pam Rocks and birds around Christie Island, but will also add in some unique Bald Eagle nests and traditional First Nations locations. This trip is a true example of our west-coast fjord landscape littered with steep cliffs and hanging valleys. You will get a look at more of Vancouver’s history and see some untouched coast line, as it was before the city was colonized. Horseshoe Bay is also home to many unique restaurants and shops that are fun to explore before or after the tour.

Campbell River: Bute Inlet Grizzly-Watching Tour & Boat Ride

3. Campbell River: Bute Inlet Grizzly-Watching Tour & Boat Ride

Hop on a speedboat and travel among the Discovery Islands while searching for marine wildlife and whales along the way. Once you arrive at Bute Inlet, meet your Homalco First Nation guides and transfer to the van. Receive a short orientation and head over to the bear viewing platforms. From your perch in the viewing towers, situated above the salmon spawning channel, you will have an unobstructed view of grizzly bears as they roam the river banks. Make sure to have your camera ready, as the specially designed viewing platforms provide ideal photo opportunities.

We had a very nice afternoon when we went on the excursion “City and Seal Boat Tour”. The tourguide learned us a lot about Vancouver and it’s surroundings, the ride was funny, and we saw a lot of interesting places on the coastline, including seales. The only thing I missed was a suite in my size. Had to take a ripped one because there were no others left.

The boat tour is highly recommended for robe fans. The view of North Vancouver, the Lions Gate Bridge and some parts of the Vancouver skyline were also very good. It is highly recommended to wear the suits that are offered to you as it is very cold on the open sea.

This was a great experience and our guide was excellent. We saw the seals on seal island and came real close to a huge cargo ship. An experience like no other. It was one of the great highlights on our trip

Fantastic tour with a very nice guide!! We took the sunset tour at 7:30 pm and had stunning views and were able to see a lot of seals, too. Can totally recommend

Absolutely awesome!!! Our guide, Christel, was super enthusiastic and knowledgeable! Definitely recommend that tour!
