We were really excited to go on the Sea Safari with our airmiles that paid for the tickets. We thought at least we aren't paying the actual ticket price to go and thought it might be a nice diversion from our trip. Our guide on the tour, Thomas, was actually really funny and seemed quite knowledgeable about the area. One... More

This review is specifically of the Sewell Marina Sea Safari tour. I admit, I only went on this because the whale watching tour I wanted to go on was sold out. This having been said, it was a great day. We were alone on the boat aside from another couple who were being dropped off at Britannia Beach (about halfway).... More

For generations, Sewell's Marina has been the GO TO spot for fishing charters and now for their eco adventures. Their boats, maintenance and staff are excellent. it is important during the summer to reserve ahead because otherwise it could be a long wait for a boat, of any size. You do need a fishing license which you can get on... More

My family of four went on the 2 hour Sea Safari Tour that we found through Groupon. We're a family of thrill seekers so sitting on a boat tour for two hours could be a challenge for us. Not the case! Thomas, our fantastic tour guide, was full of interesting information on Howe Sound and the surrounding area as well... More

Getting out on the water off the coast of Vancouver is a magical place. With the ocean, mountain and city landscapes you can really appreciate the majesty of this part of the world. We recently took the Deep Fjord tour up Howe Sound from Horseshoe Bay. Guests wear a survival suit ride on a hard bottomed Zodiac. (The survival suits... More

Once or twice each summer, my kids and I rent a boat and enjoy a couple of hours on the water. For us, we live in West Vancouver, so it's a short drive and an economical way to enjoy a couple of hours on a nice summer day. We usually rent the 90hp boats (there are 3 sizes of motors,... More

Rent a self-drive boat or take one of their tours or fishing charters. There's nothing quite like it in the world. Stunning scenery, surrounded by mountains in Howe Sound.
