• “My family and I enjoyed the Howe Sound Sea Safari offered by Sewell’s Marina immensely! It was a blast seeing the wildlife, hearing the local stories from the guide and the boat ride itself was invigorating while we were tucked into our survival suits against the elements. This is truly an experience I would not want to miss!”

    Gabrielle Loren, West Vancouver, BC
  • “We rented a boat on a beautiful day – they gave us a great route to do for 2 hours. We had so much fun, and got to see the seals on the Pam Rocks, which was a very unique experience. All in all, wonderful, cheery, happy staff, who helped us have such a wonderful experience. I would recommend this to anyone, and has really made the Top 5 things we’ve done whilst here in Canada on our working holiday visa!”
