The Choice is Yours

When it comes to choosing your Canada Whale Watching holiday, it is important to consider what else you want from your break. Are you interested in self drive holidays or do you want your transport arranged for you? Do you want to explore more of the local flora and fauna or are you a city lover at heart? Whichever itinerary you choose, you can be sure you’ll have a great deal to look forward to.

Wildlife on Land and Water

Travel to British Columbia and sail across the Knight Inlet in search of Orcas, Giant Humpback, Pacific Grey and Minke Whales. It’s a good idea to keep an eye open for other creatures too such as porpoises, seals, dolphins and bald eagles. Other highlights of this amazing eight day Canada Whale Watching trip include Grizzly and Black Bear watching adventures and time spent in the cosmopolitan city of Vancouver.

Scenic Beauty

The Sunshine Coast is the destination for another great Canada Whale Watching holiday in British Columbia. This self drive itinerary again offers the chance to see magnificent Black Bears as well as taking in stunning forests and fjord-like waters and savouring the delights of Victoria and Vancouver. Highlight of the trip is, however, the cruise through the Clayoquot Sound where you may be lucky enough to see Grey Whales, Sea Lions, Killer Whales, Porpoises, Puffins and Bald Eagles.

The Great Outdoors

There are further self drive opportunities on offer in Quebec. This stunning area of lush mountains, impressive lakes and charming rivers is teeming with wildlife. A great base for outdoor activities such as canoeing, swimming, mountain biking, hiking, fishing and boating, this Canada Whale Watching also break offers holidaymakers the chance to visit a glacial lake and an amazing wildlife zoo.

When it comes to the actual whale spotting, you’ll sail along the St Lawrence River and around the mouth of the Saguenay Fjord where your expert guide will tell you all about the behavioural patterns of Finback, Minke and Beluga Whales. Who knows, with luck on your side, you may see all three of these magnificent species!
