Wildlife Viewing

One of British Columbia’s distinguishing assets is its incredible wildlife, both marine and terrestrial. It has more than 1,100 different wildlife species and some of the most diverse ecosystems in the world. Cruising on board the Pacific Yellowfin, along parts of the thousands of kilometers/miles of coastline, gives you the opportunity to see the most iconic.

Please note most of our crew members are bear-viewing certified guides. Read more on our wildlife stewardship here.
