Richmond & Steveston Village

For a truly exhilarating excursion, whale watching with a local tour provider can’t be beat! Getting close enough to these majestic creatures often starts in the historic fishing village of Steveston (in Richmond) or from downtown Vancouver. Within minutes of either point of departure, you’ll find yourself exploring the Strait of Georgia, Fraser River Delta and Gulf Islands, home to these mighty mammals. You’ll also get a chance to spot harbour seals, sea lions, porpoises and a variety of marine wild- life that call these coastal waters home – don’t miss out on this once-in-a-lifetime experience!
The Vancouver International Airport sits on Richmond’s second biggest island, Sea Island. So you’re technically flying out of Richmond, not Vancouver!
