Whales, Orcas in November?

Hubby and I are taking a trip up to Vancouver from San Francisco area for our first wedding anniversary next month. We are arriving the days that majority of tours offer their final whale watchings trips. Seems it's seasonal April - end of October. What about early November? Are there tours offered? If so please share tour names and we'll do the research. If there's no tours, what will be our odds to see some whales on our own? Any particular places you would recommend, ferry trips and such? We do have a car.

Welcome to the forum Gabi_Jorge ~

There would be one whale watching tour available out of Vancouver. "fly-whales-fly" which you can see here:

The floatplane will likely be Harbour Air and the flight will be weather dependent. Orcas are found in the waters off Victoria which is a 4 hour journey by land and ferry from Vancouver.
