For a great experience.

It was evident that our guides were knowledgeable, educated, and loved what they were doing. Our experience was wonderful and relaxing and we saw things we never imagined. The ocean life is amazing and I have a new respect for the creatutes that live there. Thank you for this experiece.
Saw Humpbacks

My friends all had an awesome time which was great! We saw Humpbacks pretty close, lots of sea lions and one or two porpoises. I was dissapointed that that was all we saw though. Maybe my expectations were to high, but I would have loved to see Orcas.
Fun experience

We were able to see several humpback tales. I would have loved to get closer but seeing whales is the luck of the draw.

We had a beautiful day to go out looking for whales! It was easy to move around the boat, inside or outside. The naturalists were so friendly and knowledgeable about the wildlife we saw. Our captain found several big humpback whales as well as a mom and baby humpback. We also saw sea lions, seals, otters, and even an elephant seal! It was a great morning!

Too Early
, May 2019
It was an enjoyable day on the water but unfortunately we booked too early in the season. Was advised by the staff that the Orcas were not in the area yet. I will know better next time. Nice boat and very nice crew. They even kept us out on the water an hour extra to insure they found us at least one whale to look at. Much appreciated.
A very good boat trip!

Very professional and knowledgeable staff. We saw many humpback whales and one with her baby. The head guide kept us continually updated on where we were going and interesting facts. We also saw huge sea lions on the lighthouse island and some seals. It was definitely the BEST tour we took in Victoria! Thank you again.

Great excursion!!! The crew were fantastic, the boat is very comfortable and best of all we were able to see some humpbacks, porpoises and lots of other marine mammals! It was a nice sunny day which helped a lot but keep in mind that once you are out in the open waters, it does get chilly when the boat is cruising. They do provide warm coats plus coffee and hot chocolate. Our expert naturalist can't remember her name was fantastic and it was great to see how excited she got when we spotted a whale even though she does this all of the time... her excitement was infectious and it made for a more fun experience plus she really knew her stuff!!! Highly recommend this one over the zodiacs myself if you are looking for a more comfortable way to see the whales without losing out on getting up close.
