Day 02: Vancouver Waters – Dinner Cruise
After breakfast proceed to the seas and visiting with some of the region’s most spectacular inhabitants, the whales! Companies including Prince of Whales, Wild Whales Vancouver, Vancouver Whale Watch, and Steveston Seabreeze Adventures all offer tours whisking you out onto the waters of the Gulf of Georgia where you might see orcas, humpback whales, minke whales, grey whales, porpoises, seals, sea lions, eagles, and a variety of seabirds. Tours range from intimate groups on Zodiac-style vessels that are big on adventure, to larger boats with modern comforts. Later after lunch spends some time exploring and then consider a spa treatment at one of Vancouver’s five-star hotels, especially one that uses locally sourced ingredients such as west coast seaweed, sea salt, or glacial mud. Or take a stroll down Robson Street, Vancouver’s best known shopping district. Along with famous designer brands and quirky independent boutiques, you’ll also find the people-watching is excellent. Grab a coffee at one of the many cafes and take in some of the atmospheres. Later in the evening proceed to Coal Harbour, and board the Sunset Dinner Cruise. Take a leisurely tour past Vancouver’s Canada Place, North Shore Mountains, and Stanley Park while you enjoy live music and a West Coast-themed buffet. Overnight at Vancouver.
