    What an epic day It was an experience that I will treasure for my lifetime. The weather was perfect-blue skies and calm waters. We saw Orcas ( transients and southern) , humpbacks, white bodied dolphins, bald headed eagles, seals and sea lions in there glory! We were in good hands with Anthony at the wheel and Wilma with her immense knowledge, wonderful sense of humour and passion explaining so much about the beautiful creatures . Awesome day in every way!

    Awesome day! It was a beautiful day and the tour started on time. We started from Granville Island on a 74 seater vessel. It was very windy out in the sea but we saw some really beautiful moments of a mother teaching her calf to swim/ feed in the water. We were very lucky to cruise parallel to the two Humpback Whales’ direction of movement. There were some very thrilling moments we witnessed! Truly awesome and recommended! The tour guides were all very friendly and well informed. They also relayed a lot of information about the whales and other sea animals. We saw sea lions lazying on the rocks as well! Overall a truly beautiful day!

    Amazing experience for us first-timers I've always wanted to go whale watching so it was a must when we arrived in Victoria. I didn't know how to choose a reputable company so I did the usual: compared prices, reviews, locations and then just picked one. I have to say the location of being from the info centre and the fall "flash sales" were the initial reasons to choose this company, but then I thought it was interesting that they would guarantee seeing whales or your money back. I thought even if we didn't see whales we'd get a fun boat ride and possibly another offer to try again. I wasn't worried either way. So off we went. The purchasing online was easy and the information delivery was clear. Check in was friendly and smooth. I was expecting to be cold, and it was a bit our on the water, but overall I was very comfortable even though the sun was only out for about an hour. It was overcast the rest of the day, but that did not take anything away from the experience. From the introductions of the crew, the safety talk at the start to concierge service and staff on hands to connastntly interact and provide information and answers, I felt taken care of the entire time. We saw tons of animals from whales to seals to a single resident otter. The animals were of course the highlight, but the surprising part was the sheer information and education put forth. You can tell these guys have taken the time to really hone this product from the heart. I can't compare as I've never been on another tour like this, but I recommend this company with complete confidence. Well done crew! Special thanks to Shawnee, Bill and Jo, and oh man I wish I could remember the other crew members names as they were all great!

    Awesome Whale Watching Cruise My husband and I went on this tour this morning and it was amazing. We saw Orcas, Humpback Whales and Harbor Seals. The crew were fantastic and the naturalist in our area, Olivia, was very knowledgeable, professional and friendly. The tour was very well organised. Would definitely recommend this tour.

    A fantastic winter day trip I am a local but this was my first time taking a tour from the inner harbour. I was definitely not disappointed! We saw several Humpback whales, a grey whale, sea lions at Race Rocks and then were surprised with some Orca sightings. All in all a great day and I was super impressed with our guide's knowledge and expertise on all things whale related.

    AWESOME experience!!! Highly recommend!!! Had an absolutely wonderful afternoon. The staff are awesome - so passionate and knowledgeable and it really shows and makes for an awesome and memorable experience. The crew members - Lili, Seanie and Laura(?) are rockstars of the ocean! They truly made the experience that much better - Very friendly and informative - I learned so much on our tour! We were fortunate to see both transient and resident orcas. At one point we were surrounded by humpbacks!! Absolutely incredible!! Even the staff were excited! The vessel was comfortable and it was such as nice touch to offer complimentary teas and coffees. I have done the tour with other companies and would not hesitate to recommend Prince of Wales. It is worth every penny for a wonderful day on the water and awesome experience!

    What DIDN'T We See On the BEST Whale Watching Day! Absolutely AMAZING day on the water! It couldn't have been a better adventure! Beautiful weather, friendly passengers (thanks for sharing your blanket), multiple humpbacks, killer whales, sea lions, eagles, seals, and porpoises. We even saw a humpback whale do a full roll over (breaching)!!! Our captain, Anthony, (great sense of direction today) and guides were extremely knowledgeable (I had Ph.D. Amy and Wilma closest to me). I can't wait to come back this summer for another adventure!

    great staff and amazing sightings sightings! Prince of Whales in Telegraph Cove is the best place to go for whale watching. On our last trip of the week, we saw transient orca whales hunting for their lunch. It was an amazing experience and we saw up to 30 orcas at a time! We also saw 4 humpback whales on that same trip. Overall great time and the staff were so nice and informative. We want to give a special thanks to Rebecca for making the trip even better.
