Vancouver Whale Watching

I'll be in Vancouver for a week or so from the 1st Nov and might like to try a bit of Whale watching, if I have time. It would be cool to go in a RIB rather than something slow and boring so could anyone point me in the right direction of some good RIB whale watching people out there?

I emailed Simon at ocean eco ventures but never received a reply Simon, if you're still out there, please get in touch!

Thanks all,

Tim

Quite a few links here (not all Vancouver, though.)

Hey Tim,

I never received your email... Give me a pm or try emailing me again. It is getting pretty late in the year as far as whale watching goes. Although today I was out with 87 Killer Whales. Talk to you soon.

Simon

That first pic isn't a killer whale...

Any idea what kind of fish the sea lion's munching on? I don't recognize it (though it's kind of tough from just the caudal fin.)

Nice orca shot.

Man, that is SO not fair! I saw a couple of ducks the other day. Does that count?

I am green with envy...

Simon,

Not sure if you'll check this thread but I'm in Vancouver now and have been trying to get hold of you on the number given on the website. There are a few of of us in my hostel who would be keen to get out to see some orcas. Perhaps we might be able to fill up a boat?

When would be a good time to call? Alternatively perhaps you could call me on the number given on my website?

Thanks!

Tim
