Grab your camera and thrill to an exciting whale and marine life discovery cruise. Your half-day adventure begins after a quick walk from port that brings you to Atlin dock. Step aboard a custom-built catamaran, equipped with bathrooms, two glass-enclosed indoor seating cabins, four outdoor viewing decks and a snack bar. Set off into the pristine waters of scenic Chatham Sound, British Columbia, cruising through the North Coast's spectacularly scenic Inside Passage. These waters around the Hecate Strait teem with humpback whales, orca (killer) whales, sea lions, harbor seals and playful porpoises. Look to the shoreline and the skies for seabirds such as great blue herons, guillemots, murres, cormorants, and majestic bald eagles that swoop down to pluck fish from the sea. Your knowledgeable, local crew will offer lively commentary and help you achieve expert nature photographs. Return to port at the conclusion of this exhilarating day.
