Tour description provided by Viator

The Howe Sound Sea Safari Cruise takes you on a 2-hour adventure to the spectacular scenery and wildlife which make coastal British Columbia world famous. Grab a seat on a custom-designed, high-speed, 28 ft. rigid hull inflatable. With an experienced guide at the helm, and three routes to choose from, you won't miss a thing as you speed across Horseshoe Bay to The Strait of Georgia.
On each of the tour options, you'll find yourself racing beside steep cliffs and caves, and spotting harbor seals at play. A highlight of the cruise is Pam Rocks, popular with Harbor Seals and majestic bald eagles soaring overhead. Cruise out into The Strait of Georgia to see awesome views of Vancouver. The Howe Sound Sea Safari Cruise is fast but safe. The aluminum hull design with inflatable tubes makes it comfortable in calm or rough water. Depending on the weather, either Mustang Integrity suits or approved life vests are provided for your comfort and safety. The vessel is equipped with VHF radio and a cell phone.  You'll get to choose from one of the three adventures below. The Deep Fjord Tour will soar you up the coastline with the eagles. As you travel this deep into the sound, you will get a look at more of Vancouver’s history and see some untouched coast line, as it was before this great city was colonized. The Bowen Explorer Tour will take you on an amazing ride exploring the highlights of Howe Sound from hugging the coastline and islands to Howe Sound, all the while taking in the incredible wildlife. Check out the seal colony and bird sanctuary, not to mention the iconic Pt. Atkinson Lighthouse.The Circle Tour will weave you along and around the coastlines and islands of Howe Sound. You will be amazed by the cliffs towering above as you explore the cool glacier water surrounding Anvil Island, see seals sunning themselves at Pam Rocks, and take in the spectacular waterfront homes of West Vancouver.
