Gives you a chance to view Howe Sound from a different perspective. We found the tour most enjoyable, specially as we had the whole boat to ourselves!!! Enjoyed the scenery, wildlife & sea-spray!!! Made us feel like kids again!

Captain George did a great job in showing us the Bowen Island tour. The 90 minutes we had was well planned and very informative. The wildlife (seals mostly) were wonderful to see up front and close. A zodiac trip well worth taking.
