Thank-you Maggie M for your review, yesterday afternoon with the sun shinning it sure felt like summer was fast approaching. We have a selection of boats available to rent now and some of our winter boaters have been entertained by eagles catching salmon out of the water, Harbour Porpoises cruising along and the seals are starting to climb out of...

Sewell's offers a pretty good deal on boat rentals and the scenery you see in Howe Sound will blow anything away that you get around Granville Island. Drive the extra distance and get a truely West Coast experience!

If you want to catch some salmon, make sure you book a trip with Mike Speed - one of the most knowledgeable guides out there! If there are fish in the local waters, he will make sure you catch them.

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.

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
