Great Trip! We saw three pods of orcas and two humpbacks. The naturalists were friendly and knowledgeable.

The trip was amazing from start to finish, helped by a sighting of a humpback, and two pods of orcas at close quarters, which was an incredible and memorable experience. However, even without these highlights, it was a great morning out on the water seeing plenty of other wildlife, including bald headed eagles, seals, and a sea otter. Captain Rod and Cydney provided friendly, enthusiastic and expert information and knowledge, as well as happily extending the trip to give us all longer to enjoy and marvel at the orcas while we were amongst them, all of which made this trip a major highlight of our vacation in Western Canada. I would thoroughly recommend Eagle Wing tours which, from the research I did and my experience on this trip, I believe offer the best whale watching experience in Victoria.

I'm very happy we choose Eagle Wing Whale Watching tours and the 12-passenger speed boat. The speedboat ride itself was exhilarating, on top of seeing orcas, a humpback, sea lions, and a sea otter. This tour company was well worth paying a little more for, and I'd do it again in a heartbeat.

Eagle Wing Tours was FANTASTIC. We actually went out twice in one day with this same outfitter. The captain of one our boats was one of the owners. Everyone was SO knowledgeable and kind, and genuinely LOVED what they were doing. They were clearly committed to the experience. I highly recommend this experience with this company if you want to see amazing Orcas in British Columbia. ENJOY. It's majestic.

The whale watching excursion was great. The crew was knowledgeable about all aspects related to the marine animals. They had a great plan to maximize our viewing of seals and whales. The staff was fantastic I had two children who got seasick and the crew made them as comfortable as possible and was genuinely concerned with there well being. I would definitely recommend this tour.

We had a great time on the tour! The guide was very informative, and the boat ride was a lot of fun. We saw just about everything, except for humpbacks.

Had 2 young kids with us an elderly in laws. the covered boat was perfect - much smaller than the huge cruise tour behemoth boats so we felt like we got good personal service. the crew was absolutely flawless - learned so much about orcas and humpbacks and lots of other interesting tidbits. we were able to view a resident pod of orcas feeding as well as a group of hump backs at another site all in one trip. We even saw a humpback doing the tail slapping thing. Truly unforgettable!

The staff on this boat was really great. They were informative and funny. We actually saw humpbacks and orcas. Also bald eagles and seals. We were so pleased to find out that it was a family owned business and they donate to good causes. We thought it was money well spent.

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.
