To Travel Is to Live ― Hans Christian Andersen

“To move, to breathe, to fly, to float,
To gain all while you give,
To roam the roads of lands remote,
To travel is to live.”

Vancouver Travel—Whale Watching

Based on Google Search results, the following two locations near Vancouver are top whale watching spots in North America:
Later I have watched below video and found out  about Vancouver Whale Watch located in Richmond, British Columbia.

Here is a travelogue that chronicles my whale watching experience in a beautiful summer morning. As the photos reveal, there is no whale spotted on that day. However, the whole trip was still very rewarding and the tour company also gave us a free pass with no expiry date for future whale watching.

How to Get There

For both routes, you can:


Below photos (click to enlarge) were taken on 07/30/2017.  In the morning, it was cloudy.  But, during the day, it turned sunny (temperature: 28°C).  Before the tour, I have decided to visit the nearby Garry Point Park first.  Boy!  I was glad that I have made that decision and been rewarded with some gorgeous views of shorelines.

Around 8:30 am, I walked from the Park to the Fisherman's Wharf.  There were already a crowd of tourists there.  However, I was able to book a trip on the Express  (a 45 passenger zodiac style vessel).  The whole trip on the water took about 4 hours.
