Shuttle Service from Vancouver & Richmond

Vancouver Whale Watch Shuttle

Start your whale watching adventure with a journey on one of our new shuttle buses.  Our knowledgeable drivers will give you a guided tour of Vancouver and Richmond as we take you to our destination, the charming historical fishing village of Steveston, locally known as the “gateway to the whales”.
And also home to Disney’s world of Storybrooke, the setting for the famous TV series Once Upon a Time.

Wild Orcas = AWESOME! ~ "The shuttle picked us up on time from Canada place and our driver Levi, was full of knowledge and gave us a guided tour of Vancouver" ~ Jeannette504216 via TripAdvisor

Great experience ~ "From the shuttle pick-up close to where we were staying - Trevor, the driver, was a welcoming and knowledgeable guy, who made the trip there an event in itself - to the staff in the office, and then the trip itself - all was fantastic." ~ Tarida2 via TripAdvisor

Fantastic day ~ "Shuttle bus picked us up round the corner from our hotel and our driver, Levi, set the tone for the day. 40 mins through the south of the city to Richmond (way nicer than Vancouver) and the picturesque village of Steveston. A very slick operation to get booked / paid for and straight down to the boats." ~ Goneynodaethat via TripAdvisor
