You'll get to see a variety of seals, sea lions, porpoises, birds, and of course, whales. Killer whales, Gray whales, and Humpback whales are listed as the most common.

Perhaps you'll use an aquatic theme for your wedding ceremony so that you're tying your engagement setting in with the exchange of your vows and wedding bands.

While any of these fantastic activities would make for a wonderful proposal by themselves, another way to present your special piece of gemstone or diamond jewelry from Knox Jewelers would be in the comfort of a hotel room at the end of a day full of adventures. The Fairmont Empress Hotel is one of the most romantic hotels in Canada and it is right near the Inner Harbor. Cozy up with your honey in one of their luxurious rooms and surprise them by either having a bottle of champagne waiting when you reach the room, or by having room service deliver it.

Pull out the engagement ring that you chose just for them and watch their eyes light with joy as they realize that you want to spend the rest of your lives together.
