    An experience beyond imagination. Exceeded excellence. What an incredible experience from staff, to guide, ease, and comfort!
    And the perfect finale was a humpback whale in full breach caught on Camera by Marie O'Shaughnessy -a passionate photographer- on board who shared precious treasures with all the passengers. A very emotional experience.
    Laura was a wonderful guide. Reached out to all of us together, and independently. As did Captain Chris whilst Shawnee kept providing updates.

    Blown away at the variety & amount of whale sightings The team on my tour were all highly professional to passengers and all marine life throughout our adventure-tour. Their "cetology" knowledge was far and beyond anything I had experienced. Lili was particularly forthcoming with global and localised information about the differing whale species and in particular the transient Orca's and hump back whales in Victoria that day. This whale watching tour is top of the line: highly professional and well humored crew, a good amount of whale action to see and an excellent modern vessel. Such a life changing experience - don't miss out!

    Whale of a time I feel terrible for just writing this review now but I was in Vancouver in August and decided to spend one of my mornings whale watching. After doing some research I decided that this was the business to book through and I am so glad that I did. Our crew, Aurora, Selina, Craig & Captain Ian were amazing. The ladies were each so knowledgable and and informative. The passion they have for what they do was very evident. They were even compassionate when a child became sea sick. The water was. bit rough going out but the crew made us feel at ease. We not only saw humpback whales but also orcas. I am originally from Vancouver but had never done this before and I am so glad that I did. It was an amazing experience and I would recommend them to everyone!

    Whale watching Excellent, well thought out operation. Easy to book through the website, customer service was great in assisting me with a problem of my own making on my booking. The tour itself was well run, was respectful to the wildlife we encountered and we spent the right amount of time in the right places. The Naturalists onboard were knowledgeable and enthusiastic about their subject, and it was great to see them as excited as the guests on occasion when the whales put on a show. It was a cold clear day, my only regret is not wrapping up slightly more to keep out the cold. The included coffee did help with this. Would definitely book again next time in Vancouver.

    Steve and Susan bullingtom Awesome whale watching day! We saw hump backed whales up close! Our nature guides Roya, Hannah and Mar were very enthusiastic and informative. The time in Victoria was fabulous. Butchart gardens are excellent. The boat ride bank to Vancouver is enjoyable. Would recommend this trip and nature guides to anyone.

    Whale of a time What an incredible trip. Setting off on the early whale watching cruise. We left Victoria in one of the new craft Saltash Sea Eclipse with Captain Bill and Joe, together with crew Lili and Laura. First stop was an island nature reserve with sea lions, sealsl, Cormorants and a Bald eagle. What made the trip was the helpful crew Lili and Laura who were extremely knowlageable about the area and wildlife. We spent an hour watching a large group of humpback whales with good commentary from the crew. Nothing was too much trouble from a very professional team, with help yourself complimentary hot drinks and blankets to help you keep warm. Overall a fantastic experience.
