Event description

Description

Join the GSS and enjoy the stunning BC coast while we search for the iconic whales of the west coast with Wild Whales Vancouver! Departing from Granville Island in downtown Vancouver, the Wild Whales experience allows you to observe orcas, humpback whales and the diverse wildlife of the Pacific Coast in their natural habitat. It is an unforgettable, trip of a lifetime!

Tickets are extremely limited so get yours today!

The trips vary greatly in length, from 3-7 hours. We are often asked why we have such variation in our schedule. The answer, the wildlife we are looking for is unpredictable. Killer Whales (orcas) are always moving and searching for food, we cannot say where they will be from one day to the next. However, we want to give all of our guests the opportunity to experience these amazing mammals. We will therefore travel those extra miles on days when the orcas are further away from Vancouver.

We recommend that you bring the following:


- Comfortable clothes and shoes. Please dress appropriately according to the weather (we suggest at least a few layers).

- A lunch (which can be purchased at the Public Market here on Granville Island). Complimentary bottled water and a small snack are provided on board.

- Help us achieve our goals of running an environmentally friendly organization by bringing your own reusable water bottle. We have a cooler of filtered water in our office which you are welcome to use to fill your bottle before the trip. If you don't have one, we will have complimentary bottled water on-board.

- Sunglasses and sunscreen.

- Cameras and/or video equipment (we can provide dry storage on the boat and plastic bags to protect your equipment from damage).


*Check-in will start at 10:15 am. Please arrive on time.

*Tickets for Non-grads are on a first-come first-serve basis. Please note there are few available as we give priority to Grad Students.

*Non-Grad Students are defined as UBC staff or faculty and partners/spouses of UBC Graduate Students.

*To avoid Eventbrite fess, sales with exact cash only are also available at the GSS Front Desk from Monday through Friday, 9am-5pm.
