A brilliant trip – enjoyed all of it – the commentary was great, speechless about the whales and also exciting to see the bald eagles and seals. A wonderful day out and one to be remembered and talked about for a long time!

Our Boats

Wild Whales Vancouver currently has four vessels in our fleet, all exceptional for wildlife viewing. All four vessels:

  • Have a bathroom on-board,
  • Are equipped with the latest in marine safety, navigation, and communication equipment,
  • Are inspected and certified by Transport Canada.

Special Features

While on board any of our vessels, passengers will have access to:

  • Local wildlife guides and articles,
  • Marine charts for viewing,
  • Bottled water and a complimentary snack,
  • Underwater hydrophones to allow passengers to listen in to the whales’ vocalizations (circumstances permitting).

Jing Yu


This state-of-the-art high-speed catamaran was designed to be an ideal whale watching boat for our waters. At 42 ft in length, the Jing Yu offers seating for 32 passengers total. The indoor cabin provides shelter from the elements, so there’s no need for anti-exposure suits. Large windows and two outdoor viewing decks ensure that your whale-watching experience is uncompromised. This vessel is recommended for families travelling with young children (under the age of 6).


Pod Pilot

For our more adventurous guests, we offer the Pod Pilot, a 39 ft., 23-passenger vessel that is completely exposed to the elements. Part of the Pod Pilot experience is suiting up in your full length, anti-exposure suit, this makes for good photos, but more importantly, it will keep you warm and insulated from the wind and spray. This vessel offers an unrestricted, 360° view of the stunning wildlife and scenery.

Orca Maru



Similar in style to the Pod Pilot is the Orca Maru. This 40 ft., 23-passenger vessel had a successful maiden season in 2010 and we are looking forward to many more trips to come. The Orca Maru offers an experience very similar to the Pod Pilot. It also offers an unrestricted, 360° view and is completely exposed to the elements, you will also be provided with a full-length anti-exposure suit.

As an open vessel, it offers a similar experience to the Pod Pilot and Orca Maru, including an unrestricted 360° view of the surrounding water and wildlife. Guests booked on Eagle Eyes will get a full-length anti-exposure suit to provide shelter from any elements you might encounter on your adventure!
