A fabulous, and beautifully thought out tour! I was a participant on one of Steveston's tours to the Gulf Islands May 14 2014, and you couldn't ask for a better, more fun and educational trip. If one is lucky maybe you can catch some Sea...More

One of our great rewards is to welcome previous Steveston EcoTours guests on repeat visits. We love to share our wonderful marine wildlife and spectacular scenery with both old and new friends! There's always something new to see, and every trip is special.
