• Travel to British Columbia and see a whale of a tail

    2011-05-06

    Those who love seeing some of nature's most interesting creatures may want to consider a vacation to British Columbia in the near future, as the season for whale watching is kicking off to a great start.

    The Canadian Press reports that various whale watching companies are sure that this season will be great for viewing the magnificent mammals, as there have been more sightings of various species.

    "We're seeing transient killer whales in larger numbers than in previous years, and all the whales that we see seem to have babies with them," Cathy Morimoto, the owner of a whale watching company, told the news provider.

    The source reports that the typical season for whale watching begins on April 1 and lasts until October.

    People who are looking to take part in a whale watching excursion during their family travel may want to consider gravitating toward British Columbia's major cities such as Vancouver and Victoria, as the country's tourism website reports that these cities are full of tours. Additionally, whale sightings happen so frequently that most companies guarantee if tourists do not see one, their next excursion is free.
