當天早上氣溫6度,下著細雨,穿著公司提供的water resistant 套裝,和雨衣,以及自己帶的防水鞋,坐open boat向海中心出發,去看野生殺人鯨去。 大家千萬不要像我這麼傻... 出發一會兒,我便有劫後餘生Cast Away的感覺...... ~water resistant並不waterproof. 在雨水同海水不斷摑打我塊的面數分鐘後,我已經感覺到我裏面的衣服已經濕了。Oh my God!!! ~心想:I didn't sign up for this xxxx, I thought...我還要被海水和雨水摑打多久? ~答案是:4個半小時!!!!!!!!!! ~最後全身上上下下裏裏外外全濕了,連socks也濕了。為何穿了防水鞋,腳也會濕呢?因為水並不是從鞋子的表滲入,而是從我濕了的身體,由頸項入水,以及全身流進去鞋子裏面 ~極度寒冷,曾經覺得自已會患低溫症,又或者永遠都不能上岸..... ~完結後,要一個多小時幾後,我的手指才可以正常活動,沖熱水沖左半個小時,體溫才正常 不覺得冷... 實在太恐佈!!! 途中有看到甚麼嗎?有,海獅。 值得嗎?一點也不值得 最不滿的是,他們自己穿防水衣,好好的。我們便濕得他奶奶的冷。小童流左兩大條鼻水,女人上船後 下巴一直在抖。太可怕的體驗。 回到公司,他們是有準備熱巧克力,(也就是說,你們明知會濕會冷呀!),但也不能使我溫暖,我只想回酒店洗個熱水澡,離開這個鬼地方。 這是我人生中最恐怖的一天。 I literally told them, it was the worst day of my life....More

This was a great boat trip. They take you right out into the sea and turn the engine off and just wait. The whales are so curious they just come right up to the boat and dive out the water and do flips and all...More

One of the favoured neighbourhoods for a day out,
Granville Island's packed theatres and art studios,
hobby shops and book stores, restaurants and bars, all
offer a plethora of activities and entertainment
options, leaving no one bored. The highlight of the
area is the Fisherman's Wharf, where the seagulls
overhead and the smell of the sea invigorate its many
