Howe Sound north of Vancouver is one of the most scenic spots in the world. But, not when you're zooming by in a RIB driven by captain "Mad Man" Darren. I particularly didn't like his hot-dogging for the girls on the beach at Lions Bay! If you're into wild high-speed 360 degree turns, to the point where you puke, then... More

Just came back from using one of their 17' boats and had a blast. The area is gorgeous, the boats worked well, staff was friendly and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. They go over the instructions and safety rules well, which helped us be more comfortable in the water. The only reason for giving them 4 stars was an issue with... More

I brought the Deep Fjord tour on the B.C.day. The sky was sunny and the water was calm, so it was a perfect condition for the boat tour. This D F tour goes further north, all the way to Britania beach, than the regular tour. The only thing I could think off is this tour get to see more of... More

We took a weekend afternoon Sea Safari tour from Sewell's, donned our sea suits and had a great time. The tour was a great blend of adventure and education — plenty of thrills, but also an appreciation of the area around us. We got to see harbor seals at island sanctuaries, tremendous visuals of mountains and forests and some pretty... More

The sailors at the command are the least respectful of the area. They ignore basic rules of navigation. In one outing the boat manage to almost ran over two kayaks, cut another boat against the small island with a lighthouse, and almost capsize a small boat at anchor that was peacefully fishing. they motored at full blast by the islands...

I rented a 17' boat from Sewell's. Everything was great, boat was there as reserved. They went over the safety stuff, and general boating instructions, I felt very comfortable. We cruised around for a little over an hour, was a lot of fun. It got a bit choppy at times, but it was easy to see and compensate speed accordingly.... More

It is nice that I am just a short drive from such beautiful scenery. The weather wasn't great for our tour but I think it gave it an authentic BC feeling. Fun and impressive at the same time!

A friend from out of town and I were very pleased with our 80km ride zooming through the beautiful waters of Howe Sound. Although I live in the area I was surprised by how much I enjoyed the trip. Great guide, lots of wild life (including a pod of Pacific white-sided dolphins), lovely fall colors, rugged cliffs, multimillion dollar mansions,... More

This was one of the best things we did in Vancouver. We had a shuttle bus pick us up at our hotel and take us to the marina. Once at the marina, we were fitted with wet suits and we were off with about 8 other people on our 2 hour expedition on a motorized raft boat. We saw bald... More
