British Columbia Boat Tours
There’s no question British Columbia is a playground for outdoor enthusiasts, with stunning geography, incredible wildlife and unlimited activities year round. This Canadian province is also a boater’s paradise. With over 27,000 kilometres of coastline that ranges from secluded inlets and dramatic fjords to surfing beaches and sandy harbours, BC should be explored with a boat tour guide who knows the waters best.
Whether you’re whale watching off of Saltspring Island, plying the waters of Princess Louisa Inlet for dungeness crab, or touring the Vancouver harbour on a sunset cruise, British Columbia is a four-season destination that offers up a platter of activities for boaters year round. Cruise the coastline beside epic mountain ranges, meet BC’s wildlife on a whale or bear watching tour, and learn about the rich history on a guided boating adventure.
Of course, boat tours in BC aren’t only ocean-focused. The province also boasts a myriad number of pristine lakes and rivers, including Kootenay Lake, the Fraser River and Shuswap Lake in the interior and you can find a boat tour guide on these and others who will fill you in on all the local lore. For example, did you know Okanagan Lake has it’s own version of the Loch Ness Monster called the “Ogopogo”? Or that 6-metre-long, prehistoric-looking white sturgeon fish ply the waters of the Columbia River? Whether you’re looking to bask in the warm sunshine on the deck of a houseboat near one of Canada’s few deserts, or tour the calm inlets spotting totem poles in Haida Gwaii, this province will have what you’re looking for.Read More ...
