What to Wear Whale Watching in Vancouver

When preparing for a whale watching tour in Vancouver, British Columbia (BC), it's essential to dress appropriately to ensure your comfort and enjoyment during the excursion.

Layered Clothing

The weather in BC can be unpredictable, so it's best to dress in layers. Start with a moisture-wicking base layer to keep you dry, add a lightweight insulating layer like a fleece or a sweater for warmth, and top it off with a waterproof and windproof outer layer, such as a rain jacket or a waterproof shell.

Warm Hat and Gloves

Even in the summer months, the temperature on the water can be cooler, especially when the boat picks up speed. Bring a warm hat and gloves to keep your head and hands protected from the wind.

Comfortable Pants

Wear comfortable and weather-appropriate pants, such as jeans or quick-drying outdoor pants. Avoid wearing shorts, as they may leave your legs exposed to the elements.

Sturdy Footwear

Choose closed-toe shoes with good traction, as the boat deck might be wet and slippery. Comfortable and waterproof shoes or hiking boots are ideal for staying dry and stable during the tour.

Sunglasses and Sunscreen

Even on overcast days, the sun's rays can still be intense, especially when reflected off the water. Wear sunglasses with UV protection and apply sunscreen to protect your skin.

Binoculars and Camera

Bringing binoculars will enhance your chances of spotting distant marine wildlife. Don't forget to carry a camera or smartphone to capture the incredible moments during the whale watching tour. Ensure your camera is waterproof or has a protective case.

Personal Items

Consider bringing essentials like a refillable water bottle, snacks, and any necessary medications. Some tours may provide snacks or beverages, but it's always a good idea to have your essentials on hand.

Whale Watching Sea Sickness Remedies

If you are prone to motion sickness, consult with a healthcare professional before the tour and consider bringing appropriate remedies like motion sickness bands or medications.

The weather and sea conditions can change during the tour, so being prepared for varying conditions will help you make the most of your Vancouver whale watching experience.
