Tons of fun and gorgeous views
Jul 2021
The Sea Safari was a fantastic way to take in the incredible scenery of Howe Sound. The 2-hour duration was perfect. We were lucky enough to see many harbour seals, and 2 bald eagles. There was a great blend of ripping around in the waves, sightseeing, and informative commentary. Would absolutely recommend!

I was in awe
Oct 2019
After they helped us suit up, we headed down to the boats. I did in early morning so the view out onto the still water was beautiful. The tour itself was exhilarating. The driver was taking us over some big waves and doing sharp turns which everyone loved. The whole boat was screaming and laughing. It was nice to slow down and learn about the nature and wildlife around us. I couldn't believe how beautiful the view was, I was in awe. I highly recommend this experience to anyone who is looking for a water-based experience without actually having to be in the cold water.

Absolutely unmissable
Did a Sea Safari trip with Holly today as part of our Landsea Tour Sea to Sky trip. Holly - you were brilliant as our skipper and guide on our journey from Horseshoe Bay to Brittania Beach. We saw 3 bald eagles, plenty of harbour seals and birdlife. So pleased we took this extra option to our day's excursion. Unforgettable. Thank you again.
