Humpback adventure
, Sep 2019
Holly was an excellent guide and very knowledgeable. We were able to see several whales and followed two humpbacks as they put on a real show for us. Excellent use of our time and money.

We saw 3 humpback whales and 4 transient orca’s. It was excellent. We also saw bald eagles and 3 kinds of seals. A day never to forget. Markwas a great tour guide.

Hi Vankeep, Thank you so much for your great review! We are so glad to hear that you were able to encounter so much of the wildlife in our waters! We will pass along your kind words to captain Mark! Hopefully next time you come out with us we can provide you with a five star experience :) Kind regards, BC Whale Tours
Perfect day!

Great experience watching Humpbacks, though we had hoped to see transient killer whales and more. Tour could have included more natural history or local or native cultural information presented to fill the down time through the three hours... maybe hard when there is only the captain as boat staff and he’s driving and looking for whales all at the same time.
This was one of the most amazing...

This was one of the most amazing days of my life. We were collected from our hotel on time, checked in quickly by a very friendly and helpful young lady. Keegan gave us a most memorable morning packed so full of information about the wildlife. He answered all our questions very patiently and made it very clear how much he enjoys his job. We were lucky enough to see a seal enjoying his lunch of a rock fish, around 20 orcas, harbour porpoise and a humpback whale. It was a beautiful day and the water was very calm. The ride in the zodiac was fantastic. The whole package was perfect, I can not recommend the team enough. We are hoping to return to Victoria next year and do it all again. Thank you all for making our whale watching experience so unforgettable. Helen, Chris and Becca Cross.
I really only wish it had been longer...

Absolutely brilliant. Captain Gordon went all out to make sure we saw whales and we did. Saw a fin, a minke, humpbacks and orcas. Amazing trip.
