Whale Watching is Only Half the Adventure
We are more than a whale watching and marine wildlife adventure organization. We are mariners, educators, entertainers, scientists, and conservationists. We have been family-owned and operated since day one.
From our downtown departure locations, we offer industry-leading whale watching tours in Vancouver, Victoria, and Telegraph Cove. Prince of Whales is focused on sharing the beautiful and breathtaking coastal waters of British Columbia, its vibrant wildlife, and its rich history.
Free Photo Package
Put your phone down and enjoy our adventure without missing a moment.
Every whale watching adventure taken on our “big boats” in Victoria, Vancouver & Telegraph Cove includes a free Hi-Res photo package taken by our talented naturalists. This package will be sent to you as soon as your tour ends.
