About Sea Dragon Charters
Snorkel and kayak with seals for a true West Coast experience just minutes from Vancouver - No experience necessary! The Sea Life Cruise, a multi-activity excursion, departs from Horseshoe Bay taking you to the nearby seal colony of Pam Rocks in scenic Howe Sound. Here, marine lovers have the chance to experience a face-to-face encounter with harbour seals in their natural environment. A 'sightseeing only' option is also available for guests who wish to stay dry on board. Are you interested in scuba diving in British Columbia and the Pacific North West? Then you've also come to the right place! Wall diving, pinnacles, canyons, seals, drifts, sponge bioherms, aritfical reefs, and stunning ocean and mountain scenery - explore it all on this 5-Hour boat diving adventure! Take the customized boat Topline out to explore the emerald waters of Howe Sound where you can commonly see Pacific octopus, wolf eels, nudibrachs, and beautifully bizarre fish such as the decorated warbonnet and the grunt sculpin.
