We had a fabulous time! The weather was perfect. The various seals and sea lions laid out to enjoy the sun provided endless photo ops. We were delighted to see a humpback whale and several orcas on our cruise. Perfect photos of these amazing creatures, however, were more elusive. Eagle Wing Tours runs a seamless operation. Despite the lovely weather, we were glad we chose the covered boat so that we did not need to be out in the sun, wind, and occasional spray the entire time. The boat was well-appointed, in great condition, and immaculate. The staff on land and at sea were friendly, professional, and knowledgeable. We were picked up promptly at our hotel. For the return trip, we had the option to get driven back or receive tokens to take the water taxi back or anywhere they stop. The water taxi experience was wonderful! I would not hesitate to cruise with Eagle Wing Tours again.

I took the early morning tour. Waters were calm. Some rain. Guides informed. Open boat carries about 20 people. Jackets and pants huge track pants, gloves given. Many many many orca sightings. The shoreline is gorgeous. Visited a light house where sealions ?, seals bask. Orcas stay near the surface. Some spyhop break surface vertically to look around. AWESOME!

The whale watching tour was fun for me, my kids and grandkids. We were all interested in the beautiful whales and seals that we saw. It was remarkable to see the whales and realize how beautiful nature can be. I think this cruise helped show people the beauty and grace of the orcas and humpbacks that we saw on the cruise. I highly recommend the cruise. The staff was really nice and the kids loved the whales. All in all we had a great time! We hope we can come back soon!

My Wife and I had the opportunity to book a scenic Whale Watching Excursion on Eagle Wing Whale Watching Tours in July, 2016.

The Eagle Wing Team picked us up promptly from our Downtown Hotel and after some quick paperwork and safety briefings, we would on our way to experience some exceptional Whale Watching.

I would like to thank Val for her exceptional knowledge and for sharing some great background on the Whales. This company is highly experienced, environmentally friendly and educational to the visitor.

During our excursion, we were able to see not only a great variety of Whale Species, but a great variety of Wildlife including Sea Lions, Seals and Birds.

We were very pleased we included this adventure into our holiday plans and encourage you to give them a try. We took the Covered Boat Excursion Boat which offered a great break from the Sun and also protection from some of the Wind when traveling to and from the Whale sites.

We were in a covered boat. The experience was outstanding. The trip was over three hours. It was comfortable and productive. We saw about ten whales and much more in terms of wildlife---sea otters, seals, elephant seal and various birds. This was a worthwhile venture, as was our entire trip to Victoria

The staff was so knowledgeable. They were able to tell us which Orca pack we were seeing, and even which particular Orcas we saw. Boat was very comfortable. I and #39;m very glad I chose the covered boat option--it was much colder on the water than in Victoria (it was a sunny, calm day--80 and #39;s on land).

Outstanding devotion from this group. We had to travel further than usual to see the whales and that's exactly what this group did. The boat was very comfortable and the scenery was beautiful. The crew was more than happy to answer any questions and willing to go the extra distance. We saw numerous whales and as the crew quickly identified them we got to hear great stories about these amazing whales, including a whale that was 105 years old! It was a chilly day so I definitely recommend dressing in layers. They have places to store bags or extra coats if you don't end up needing them.

Couldn't be better! Viewed many whales at a close range as well as seals, sea lions and a lonely sea otter. The 50 passenger boat was very comfortable with great viewing. Extra warm clothing was also provided. Staff was knowledgeable and professional.
