Vancouver Whale Watching Tour

Today we had the whale watching tour, and we had an early start late a late night. We were being picked up by a bus at a hotel just down the street. We got there in good time and waited patiently. Kim looked like she was half asleep, if not fully asleep. It had been some very long days to this point of the trip and we were only up to day six of forty four.

In hindsight, I wish I had taken my DSLR out with me on the tour. Instead I took the Canon G10, while Kim used our Panasonic digital video camera. I was worried that it would be too rough or too wet out there, so I didn’t want to risk my DSLR with so much of the honeymoon left to go. It was probably the wise thing to do, but it would have been nice to have the extra zoom and faster firing speeds.

As it was, both of us took some photos and video for a while, then we put the cameras away. We opted to simply enjoy the sight of Killer Whale Pods swimming past us, without trying to capture them on film. That made it all the more enjoyable.

We were sitting at the back of the boat, near the two rather large engines, on the way back to shore. We were both tired and this seemed like a good opportunity to get some sleep. So that is what we did. We sleep for most of the journey back to shore, while sitting next to the rather large and noisy engines. It is amazing where we can fall asleep these days.

These building photos were taken at the Sheraton Vancouver Wall Centre. This was our meeting place for the bus to the whale watching tour.
