    Half day whale watching from Vancouver - Fantastic Wilma was absolutely amazing. We had such a fab time finding out lots of facts and was lucky enough to spot a pod of Killer Whales!

    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.

    Excellent whale watching experience Fantastic experience on a very large comfortable and well equipped vessel. The team on the boat were fantastic, knew their stuff and went above and beyond to engage and inform us. The company has a very good ‘no whales’ policy - you come back free! We did just see a pair of whales through a fog, but the captain invoked the no wales policy anyway.

    There are lots of options for different cruise/fly options between Vancouver and Victoria. The experience was great value and we had a great time.

    Brilliant afternoon with knowledgable crew We took the boat from Granville Island, we sat upstairs and although it was a fast and sometime bumpy ride it was great. We were lucky with the weather, sunny although a bit cold at time. We travelled for over an hour and a half before we saw any sign of a whale but then they appeared and we spent the next hour watching them. Particularly special was the mum and her calf who surfaced close to us. on the way back we passed close to some small islands and saw a variety of wildlife, bald eagles, a variety of seals and sea otters. The crew were brilliant, showing us maps of where we were going and photos of the various types of whales we may see

    Zodiac Trip We had a great 3+ hours on the Prince of Whales zodiac tour in the early afternoon. The skipper was brilliant - friendly, knowledgeable & created a nice atmosphere. We were lucky enough to see transient orcas, residents and humpbacks - absolutely incredible and at times we didn’t know where to look as they were everywhere around us! Would recommend, and would happily use again.

    Whale watching boat tour This tour exceeded all of our expectations. Captain Aaron and First Mate Wilma did a great job finding us some very rare sightings of resident killer whales and Olivia was the Naturalist who told us about the wildlife we were seeing, and could not have been more nice and helpful.
    Highly recommend prince of Whales Whale Watching tours!

    Superb Experience We did the Vancouver to Victoria one-way excursion in the morning and it was the perfect way to travel between the two cities. Although sightings are never guaranteed, we were lucky enough to see a humpback mother and calf and a pod of Orcas, as well as some seals and a bald eagle. The knowledge of the staff was excellent and they were great in explaining what was going on answering questions we had. We had Malcom, Sandy, Stuart and Mar who were all excellent. Would highly recommend this trip to anyone.

    Thrill of a lifetime We were treated to see Orcas and Humpbacks!
    What a trip
    The boat was equipped with blankets, scarfs, hats if needed.
    The presentation by the Naturist were both informative and amusing.
    The safety procedures were presented pretty well before we left the dock.
