We went out in search of Orcas and found beautiful Humpback whales instead. What a treat. The crew were fabulous, so full of laughter and life, and very astute to the needs of every passenger on the boat. When I am in Victoria again, I will definately be taking another excursion with its company.
Was really great. Only because the tour group moved us from a zodiac to an enclosed boat!! We are 65 and 66 years old and the Zodiac would have been impossible. As it was, it was fantastic. They were very gracious to take care of us. Will definitely be using Viator again.
We had a great time. Fiona was very informative about the whales and overall information of the area. We saw a number
of orca whales, as well as seals. Recommend it to all.
The tour was outstanding! I learned a great deal of information from the on-board biologist. We found a pod of five orcas and followed them for almost an hour. I look forward to repeating the tour on our next visit to Victoria.
Great trip thank you. Saw lots of whales and the crew were great fun and very knowledgeable. Will do it again one day!
I really cannot say enough about how awesome this tour was. The staff was so helpful and so full of knowledge about the Oracas. We also were able to see a Grey Whale. I had a six year old and seven year old with me and they were thrilled. The educational value was fantastic. The Captian was a young lady and she spent alot of time with us and was so careful with the Orcas.
We had a great day whale watching, at first we thought we would not see any whales as it was foggy and we seemed to be having no luck finding them. The great thing is that all the Whale watching boats are in contact and advise each other if they get a sighting, so you have a better chance of seeing Whales. After an hour at sea we got great views of lots of Whales... amazing, the crew are great giving information about the Whales, the boat is comfortable and no sea sickness at all, great washroom and refeshments availble. This is a great trip and excellent value for money that I would highly recommend, got some great photo's too.
This was a very worthwhile experience. The tour director was knowledgeable, informative and friendly. I would recommend this to anyone who would enjoy nature contact experiences.
I loved this tour! The two young guides were so knowledgeable and friendly. It was so thrilling to see the orcas so close!
The trip was amazing! The whales were so playful and active and there was so many of them. It was a beautiful afternoon.
Great experience and great company. We got to see the whales. We wish we could stay a little longer while watching the whales.
This was fab, yacht was just right for the middle and younger age groups. Lucky to see whales. Crew very knowledgable on wild life we came across and captain of ship in constant radio contact with other ships around to guide all to see orca. Captain very respectful to all animals we came across, seals, whales, birds, didn't encroach or trap the wild life, allowed easy escape routes if they wished to do so. Crew had marine degrees and vast knowledge, knew all about orca we came across. They hold recognition sheets on dorsal fins so knew who they were and from which group they belonged
A very well organised trip with knowledgeable and helpful crew. We were lucky that the weather was fantastic and we saw orcas, seals, herons, etc, It would have been a 5 star trip if the whales had been a bit more accommodating and more visible, but that is the chance you take.
Well worth a trip but felt a bit let down that we did not get closer to the whales. The ride out and back are worth the trip alone. Like a roller coaster.
