Birds and Nature Walks near Vancouver" Reifel Migratory Bird Sanctuary and Granville Island


Arriving early for your cruise? Here's a fun idea, especially for those who love nature, and want to explore the Vancouver area.

Visit the Reifel Migratory Bird Sanctuary on Westham Island in Ladner, BC. After that, visit Granville Island Public Market for a market lunch and handcrafted souvenirs from quirky shops. Leave mid-afternoon for your cruise ship.

Please note I am not a birding "expert", but a birding enthusiastic. I do not have a scope.

Bring your binoculars, if you have any, for this tour. I have plenty of bird books available.

Itinerary

I would pick you up at the airport from your morning flight. We would drive directly to the Reifel Bird Sanctuary and spend about 1 to 2 hours there. If the weather is not great we could spend less time there and proceed to O. W. L. Orphaned Wildlife, where they have rescued and non-releasable owls and eagles. (30 minute drive from airport)

From there we would drive into the city of Vancouver and go directly to Granville Island Public Market. We would have lunch there and spend around one hour exploring the area, shopping, or enjoying the grounds and music. (30 to 45 minute drive from bird sanctuary to Granville Island)

After that we would drive down to your cruise ship terminal. (30 minute drive to downtown)

Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Meeting location: I will meet you at the airport, port or your hotel, and will have a sign with your name on it. I will need to know your flight details.

Attached is a standard Tours By Locals waiver, that I would ask you to read beforehand. You will be able to sign it at the start of the tour.

The airport is about halfway to the Reifel Bird Sanctuary so you will save time and get right out of the city immediately.

I can pick you up from a downtown hotel or the port; however, this will cost extra as the travel time to the bird sanctuary may be as much as one hour more each way.

End location: I will leave you at your cruise ship location, or at your downtown hotel. I will need these details before the start of the tour.

Duration: 6 hours

This tour goes rain or shine. The weather is often different 40 km away from the downtown area.

Transportation

We will travel in a modern, clean and spacious Honda Odyssey (2012).
Black, sleek, separate air conditioning controls for the second row.

Seats five with back row middle seat empty. Can be six if child/family member.

Regular luggage capacity available for 3 people, using back seat.

Four or five people means everything must fit in the trunk, so 50 pound pieces or hard sided luggage must be two pieces maximum.

What’s Included

Other: My services as a guide and private transportation around the city.

25 Canadian - Reifel Migratory Bird Sanctuary $6.00
Lunch and Beverage $10.00 - $20.00

What’s Extra

Other: Entrance Fees

You are responsible for any purchases of a personal nature.

Binoculars make your birding experience more meaningful. I have one extra pair that can be shared. I have a variety of bird books that you may use during the tour, if you wish.
