BC Whale Tours Questions & Answers

Brandon, Canada

If my spouse is prone to motion sickness, how much should she log up on Gravol before we go? We own a pleasure not and she is fine as long as she is facing forward and the swells aren’t too high.

Hello dickbob! The amount of motion does depend on the weather conditions. The windier it is, the 'bumpier' it will be on the water. I always recommend an open zodiac so the wind is on your face and to sit further back in the vessel were the boat is more stable. Our vessel BC Tika handles the best in rough conditions. ~ BC Whale Tours team

We went out on a remarkably calm day, as in the boat guide remarked several times about what a beautiful day it was. It is a Zodiac ride, so a certain amount of hydroplaning over chop is part of the “charm”, but that said I sat in the back row center with my kid and it wasn’t any worse than riding in a small boat on a lake. I hope that’s helpful!

What was clear with our tour, despite it being a very flat day, was a key part of the trip (between the many whales etc) was to 'find' swells so we could go over them - it was in part a 'jet boat' ride. We all loved this despite all of us being over 50 except my 2 kids. I highly recommend these guys but maybe you should confirm & the best vessel to book before booking.

The day we went there weren't really any swells. Depends on the day I guess.
