    Your best bet is the Northern regions of Vancouver Island. It's not exactly "close" to Vancouver, but definitely accessible with a hire vehicle and absolutely worth the effort.

    By far my best experiences (http://bit.ly/yUlEtv & http://bit.ly/AkyLoE) were up around Knight Inlet which is accessible on day tours etc out of Telegraph Cove (http://bit.ly/zvp8W1), about a 5 hour drive from the ferry terminal in Nanaimo (http://bit.ly/zWEhru).

    Vancouver to Nanaimo via BC Ferries is easy and convenient, but best to book ahead online. Check out the website for details: http://bit.ly/xrtspt. over 8 years ago

    Orcas on the West Coast of Vancouver Island (Tofino area). Bears in my backyard, or more specifically, anywhere there are trees. Try the mountains/parks of North Vancouver for bears. It's the closest point to Vancouver. over 8 years ago
