    Great Tour-A must do! The tour was a blast. We ended up seeing two humpback whales and 5 orcas. They do a great job of entertaining you with information when we were on the boat both around the animals and when we were out looking for more. Our crew consisted of Lili, Rory, Bill, Chris and Laura who were all excellent, very knowledgable and great at conveying information in a way that was accessible and exciting. Rory even offered to send his own personal pictures which was a great touch. Definitely recommend this company for whale watching!

    Great experience! Had fun today with Roman, Sharon, and Vanessa. Great crew who work together to make for a fantastic day. Orcas, eagles, and humpbacks were on the list of sightings. Good way to take in the Telegraph Cove area.

    The perfect day This tour has the perfect combination for a perfect day out in Victoria. Starting with the whale and wildlife tour on the boat with knowledgeable and friendly staff and ending with the glamour of the Butchard gardens. They take care of you from beginning to end and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. I think I will have to come back and do this every year! Thank you very much.

    Fantastic whale watching tour We had a great time out on the water! Our captain, Mark, was super knowledgeable, and we saw lots of whales! Definitely a highlight of my trip, and I hope to come back again to do it some day soon!

    awesome! We had a wonderful day! We saw a pod of orcas, two different humpback whales, seals, and harbor dolphins. The crew were as excited to see them as we were! The crew were attentive, engaging, and charming. It was cold, so be prepared!

    Loved this tour!!! Loved this tour. Wish I could have seen an Orca but realized my timing was off. We saw a number of Humpbacks including a mother and her calf. The staff was amazing. They explained everything in great detail and I felt like they were just as excited as I was each time a whale came out of the water. We hit gold with the place where the Humpbacks were feeding! I am definitely going to do another tour next year when Orcas are around. Thank you to the staff. You were awesome!!

    Wonderful Whale watching experience Spectacular trip ... and we got to see an Orca pod.
    This is a beautiful part of the world and to see whales in their natural setting is a delight.

    The large boat is comfortable and well equipped. It is cold on the water and the extra warmth and hat, gloves and blankets made for a pleasant experience.

    Lili, Rory, Captain Chris and Bill were fabulous. Lili and Rory are naturalists and gave excellent commentary about the whales.

    Strongly recommend a whale watching experience with this group.

    Whale watching day We were very privileged to see a pod of 5 Orca with one huge male and a young calf and then to also see Humpback and her baby too!
    Staff were very knowledgeable, especially Stu, and helped everyone to have a great experience. I would highly recommend this trip

    Off season zodiac boat... still saw a bunch of orcas! We went on an off-season day and still saw a bunch of transient orcas. The guide was informative and kept a respectful distance from the animals and it never felt like a “chase,” just passive observation, as it should be. We also saw harbor seals and pups, stellar sea lions and pups, a river otter, and various birds. The other two adults I was with agreed it was well worth the $86USD or whatever the full price was for an off season morning trip. It was plenty warm with the suits, gloves, and hats provided. Bring your own sunglasses and warm socks/shoes. Heads up- if you sit in the front row (especially with only a few people on the boat) you will need to hang on for dear life at times! Lots of fun!

    Whale watching b Must rate as one of the best trips we have been on the crew were brilliant
    They could not do enough for us and on the way back to Vancouver the captain spotted some more whales and he turned us around so we could view
    Even though we were already running late
    Great dayb
