In the spring and summer, boats depart daily from the quaint fishing village of Steveston on whale-watching trips with Seabreeze Adventures. As vessels glide away from the historic shopfronts and out of the harbor, they hit the Salish Sea, which opens out onto the Pacific. Here, boats encounter local orcas along with migrating grey, humpback, and minke whales.
Riders can spot these majestic creatures from the boat’s indoor and outdoor viewing areas, while a certified naturalist provides information on marine life and the nearby ecosystem. For a real treat, the boat can also tap into the whales’ vocalizations using on-board hydrophones. Aside from whale watching, Seabreeze's other seafaring adventures include sea lion tours and fishing charters.
