Im just back from Vancouver and caught bears and whales but not together. Did a whale watching day from Granville Island - it ended up being 8 hours on a boat. We did find some orcas which isnt always guaranteed, the scenery was beautiful and it was a great day.

Caught the grizzly bears after hiking up The Grouse Grind. If you dont fancy climbing the mountain theres a gondola that goes up and down. Views are amazing when you get up there, theres a lumberjack show and of course the grizzlies.

check these websites for more info:






Your whale and bear tours will be better from Vancouver Island than from Vancouver.
