Bowen Island: Our most recommended tours and activities

West Vancouver: Howe Sound and Bowen Speedboat Tour

1. West Vancouver: Howe Sound and Bowen Speedboat Tour

Join the Bowen Explorer Tour and marvel with the Howe Sound islands, an amazing adventure to bird sanctuaries, harbour seal rookeries, and sea caves. Finish with a short visit of Snug Cove on Bowen Island. Soar up the coastline with the eagles, farther north than our trip has ever gone before. As we travel this deep into the sound, your guide will explain about this extraordinary ecosystem that is home to harbour seals, bald eagles, oyster catchers and many other creatures and organisms. The trip will still highlight the wildlife of the sound: seals at Pam Rocks and birds around Christie Island, but will also add in some unique Bald Eagle nests and traditional First Nations locations. This trip is a true example of our west-coast fjord landscape littered with steep cliffs and hanging valleys. You will get a look at more of Vancouver’s history and see some untouched coast line, as it was before the city was colonized. Horseshoe Bay is also home to many unique restaurants and shops that are fun to explore before or after the tour.

Nice panoramic tour

The best thing about the tour was the flight. Doc Morgan is very idyllic. The dinner was ok - you shouldn't expect too much. You are completely left to your own devices. The limousine service is completely out of place.

It was a thrilling experience for me. I was literally out of my depth and it was the first time doing this. I am glad that I did it.

Loads of fun. Great tour guides. If you enjoy sun, water, waves and speed then this tour is highly recommended.

Excellent. Everything was great and organized perfectly. Restaurant was very good with very kind staff.

was a great time. our guide, greg, was fantastic. so much fun
