    Great trip~ Amazing experience!
    Warm and considerate explanation.

    Learning a lot about whales, and I can feel the how closed the local people and animals are.

    Strongly recommend.

    Breathtaking experience! I would say this tour was the highlight during my stay in Victoria. I am speechless,the atmosphere is second to none. A perfect sunny day and the ocean was so tranquil. The whales were not far from us, such a magical experience. This is a must-see attraction in Victoria.

    Prince of Whales- whale watching tour We had a great time out on the zodiac, the driver was very knowledgeable and we got to see all types of wildlife. We saw transient orca whales, seals, and bald eagles.

    I would recommend this tour. It was a lot of fun.

    Great staff, well organized, and WHALES! Dress warmly for these whale watching adventures as it can get a little chilly on the upper deck. Not to worry though, they have gloves, hats and blankets to keep you warm. They found us 6 or 7 visible whales, males, female and calves for us to marvel over. The sea lions, deer and big horn sheep were a major plus.

    Amazing trip once again This was my third trip with Prince of Whales & once again we had an amazing time. I visit Victoria over the Xmas holidays every year & its alaways a highlight.
    Jasper took us out on the zodiac & after maybe half an hour spotted humpbacks which where feeding. They keep surfacing every few moments so got to see lots of them. We then headed back along the coast where he showed us some little bays, the scenery was amazing we even spotted 2 bald eagles. Just as we headed back Jasper had a call to say Orcas had been spotted on the other direction so off we went. Once we found them there was a pod of maybe 20 which where heading back towards the harbour so we got cruse along with them.
    Jaspers knowledge was great & really informative he’s an amazing asset to the team
    See you again next year!

    Off season zodiac boat... still saw a bunch of orcas! We went on an off-season day and still saw a bunch of transient orcas. The guide was informative and kept a respectful distance from the animals and it never felt like a “chase,” just passive observation, as it should be. We also saw harbor seals and pups, stellar sea lions and pups, a river otter, and various birds. The other two adults I was with agreed it was well worth the $86USD or whatever the full price was for an off season morning trip. It was plenty warm with the suits, gloves, and hats provided. Bring your own sunglasses and warm socks/shoes. Heads up- if you sit in the front row (especially with only a few people on the boat) you will need to hang on for dear life at times! Lots of fun!

    Great people, great tour We really enjoyed our trip on the high seas with POW. Blessed with a sunny day in January, we were taken all the way down to Sooke. We saw lots of marine mammals and fantastic scenery. We’ll be back for sure!

    So much fun! This was so much fun! Our kids LOVED it and the crew were so kind and easy going. Lovely experience. We didn't see any whales but we had tons of laughs and saw some Sea Lions and seals, and breathtaking views. The ride itself was so fun we commented several times that we'd have done JUST that. Thanks again!

    Embark with Mark Terrific morning cruise on the Zodiac with Mark to watch the orcas (we saw four!) enjoy a seal lunch. Exciting and jostling.
