We took a boat for rent and spent 2 hours driving around islands and enjoying sun, ocean, and fresh air. Also you can experience seals quite close. They have their own small island only 10 min from marina.

If you are looking for a Canadian West Coast experience full of excitement, entertainment, knowledge and FUN, then Sewell's Sea Safari could be for you. It is two hours of breathtakingly spectacular views combined with thrills, fresh air and magnificence. We loved that everything was done for us, except for putting on the floater suits (which they have for all... More

Being a quadriplegic and not having any upper body strength, I was a bit hesitant to try the Sea Safari. I been skydiving, hot-air ballooning, dune bashing in the desert, and lots more and am always willing to try thrilling excursions. I am so glad I did. With the help of my friend and Darren, I was tied in to... More

What a perfect day! The day was warm...the sky blue, clear...the water quiet...and there we were racing down Howe sound doing water donuts and 90° turns. When we hit wakes or mild swells it almost felt like class III white water rafting. Not a milquetoast crawling cruise. Although there are numerous stops for sea life, landmarks, ect. You will be...

We live in North Vancouver and for years had wanted to do Sewell's 'Eco Safari', finally did it last weekend. It was terrific. Our guide/boata driver (Darren? Darrell?) was very friendly, boat not crowded, left on time, very fun interesting trip up to Brittania Beach and back, all very on-time and professional. They provide survival suits which on the one... More

Are you in for a treat! Finally had a chance to do the Sea Safari. Have heard about it for years and always wanted to do it. This is the ultimate spoil yourself treat for a local or a visitor to Vancouver. The Howe sound is gorgeous, plenty of wildlife to experience, the boat's captain gives light but interesting nature...

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
