    Wonderful day!!! Will and the crew made this adventure amazing. Wilma knows so much about the whales and area. Erin our captain was determined to find whale for us and he succeeded. Never felt rushed to get back. Boat was clean and in great condition so felt very safe. Definitely worth the time and money.

    Loved this trip! We had a wonderful experience! The crew was awesome - informative, personable & fun. Aurora was fantastic! The whales were so fun to watch - they came over so close. Two mamas & their babies traveling together.

    A great adventure Literally everything was perfect about the Zodiac tour we took. Staff was very nice and helpful. Our guide Jasper was great. He was very professional, friendly and gave a perfect amount of relevant information (instead of going extra blah blah like most guides usually do).

    Amazing Adventure!! We saw three humpback whales this morning along with three bald eagles and lots of harbor seals. After a visit to Victoria and Butchart Gardens, we saw two marine otter, jellyfish and five orcas on the return trip. My life is complete. Bravo and a big thank you to our naturalist guides Amy and James and the wonderful captain and first mate!!

    Great time! Our time whale watching was great! We saw 6 whales and even some eagles! The boat ride was beautiful! Great views of the mountains and cliffs! Our boat crew was kind, engaging, and very knowledgeable, making it a priority to chat with everyone o the boat individually! Overall wonderful experience. We got whale watching in and got to go to Victoria which were two things on your list!

    Brilliant Day We had a brilliant day on the half day whale watching trip! We saw orcas and humpbacks as well as sea lions and seals!

    The staff were great all really friendly and very knowledgable and enthusiastic!

    It was a wet and windy day so other companies had cancelled meaning there wasn’t many others out to look out for the whales so they asked us to look out ourselves for more of a chance to see anything

    We saw a couple of humpback whales first but only from a distance we were told by the staff they had heard of sightings of orcas so we were going to try and find them first and come back to the humpbacks as they tend to stay in the same place for a few hours!

    Sure enough we got to the orcas and got back to see the humpbacks too! All down to the experience of the crew, highly recommended!

    Whale watching at its best I enjoyed the trip to see the whales and also Victoria thoroughly. The skipper made such an effort to let us see the whales and we saw two humpback whales in our way to Victoria and three orcas on our way back. We also had the opportunity to stay one night in Victoria.
