White Rock Sea Tours & Whale Watching is the only dedicated whale watching and tour company operating directly from White Rock, British Columbia. We provide thrilling whale watching adventures and harbour cruises amidst stunning scenery and wildlife. We also provide services that include water taxis, charters, memorials and spreading ashes at sea, towing and boater assistance.
Andrew Newman started White Rock Sea Tours from a passion to share the wonders of the ocean with families, tourists, and groups in the local community. He hopes to better connect people with their natural legacy through spectacular coastal journeys, close encounters with animals, conservation, adventure, and “turning moments into memories.”
White Rock Sea Tours is committed to preserving our natural marine habitat and the animals within it. We support Sea Shepherd Conservation Society and Paul Watson, The Center for Whale Research, Fisheries and Oceans, Raincoast Conservation Foundation, and the Vancouver Aquarium.
We are also a member of the Pacific Whale Watch Association (PWWA). The PWWA is a group of Canadian and American whale-watching companies committed to research, education and responsible wildlife viewing. The PWWA supports scientific research on Southern Resident Killer Whales to increase awareness, understanding, and conservation.
We provide an opportunity for you to see and learn about the other species we co-exist with on this planet. The goal and the hope is that more and more people will be more aware and inspired to effect change and preserve and protect animals and our environment.
