    VICTORIA – The Salish Sea Dream, Prince of Whales’ new $3.5 million environmentally-friendly custom-built catamaran has had such a successful inaugural season running unique whale watching day trips between Vancouver and Victoria and Victoria and Butchart Gardens, the company has just placed an order for another state-of-the-art ship that will be even more environmentally friendly.

    “It’s very stable, very reliable and it’s proved to be an amazing platform for tours so we’ve had rave reviews from our guests,” says Prince of Whales owner Alan McGillivray. “Business was up more than 30 per cent on these tours, we had many sold-out days and we saw whales every single day.”

    McGillivray says the 2017 season was the best whale watching season they’ve ever had in terms of sightings, especially for humpbacks and transient killer whales.

    “We had lots of humpback sightings and and an abundance of other sightings as well,” McGillivray says. “They think there are about 300 transients between Mexico and Alaska and we believe we saw more than 100 unique transients this season, which is quite phenomenal.”

    Protecting the environment is a top priority for Prince of Whales, B.C.’s biggest whale watching company and an industry leader in sustainability.
