    Best Whale Watching Experience Great staff who are very knowledgable and obviously care a lot about the conservation of the wild life and that the customers enjoy the experience. One huge orca breached right next to the 12 seater speed boat which was amazing.

    Definitely an experience I would recommend to everybody.

    It is cold out there so wrap up!

    Fantastic crew, amazing humpback experience, can't recommend enough. The fact that Big Mama the Humpback gave us such an amazing show, was made all the better by the brilliant crew, Bill, Joe, Rory, Laura and Seanie. Their knowledge, enthusiasm and attention was first class.
    We felt included, and welcomed on board and we genuinely felt that they all wanted us to see everything we could and thoroughly enjoy our trip.
    We 100% recommend Prince of Whales as great value for money and would sail with them again in a heartbeat.

    Whale of a day My wife and I chose this trip because it included whale watching with a trip to Butchart Gardens on Vancouver Island. On the trip over we saw a couple of humpback whales and some sea lions, a little disappointing, who wouldn’t want to see more.
    At Victoria, several different times were available for the bus to Butchart Gardens, we chose the 2:00 time. Once at the gardens, we came to the realization our time would not do the gardens justice, they are absolutely gorgeous! (No slam on the tour, I had no idea how much time should be spent at the gardens to truly appreciate them) We saw as much as we could considering our time constraints.
    On they way back our boats crew located a pod of Orcas, we saw more than a dozen! We were able to stay near them for about 10 to 15 minutes and saw what our guides/naturalists said was a newborn. Seeing this many Orcas at one time was something I never thought I would have the opportunity to experience.
    If I am ever in Vancouver again, I would not hesitate to to take a whale watching trip with the Prince of Whales.

    Great time whale watching Visiting from Arizona, we decided to explore the whale watching excursion from Prince of Whales. The captain and crew were great. We saw three humpback whales, seals, and other marine life. All of the crew were very knowledgeable and kept us informed during our half day. Our guide Wilma made the voyage very informative. Highly recommend.

    Hide and seek with humpback whales Excellent day. We played tag team with a shy and elusive mother and calf humpback whale. The team made a genuine effort to find and respectfully track the whales. Incredibly informative and friendly staff. Would happily do another tour.

    Mick & Olwen Northway Highlight of our Vancouver stay. Crew of Thomas, Aaron, Aurora & Rebecca were brilliant. We saw Humpbacks on our trip but my son and partner saw Orcas as well on their trip on another day. Great experience

    A beautiful experience! The boat ride alone was worth the trip in the midst of vast expanses of water and islands. We sighted 8 whales surfacing and deep diving. Wow! The guides were
    knowledgeable and informative, always helpful and generous. It was a great experience all around. I will do it again!
