* A traveler said: "My wife and i chose this tour in order to combine whale watching with an opportunity to visit Victoria and Butchart Gardens. It is a very good way to get more whale watching in while getting over to the island an back. James, Amy, and Anthony were just excellent. They modified our planned route in very foggy conditions to find two pods of orcas. Right up to the side of the boat! They provided very good advise on how to optimize our time on land so that we could see more of Victoria while still getting in enough time at the gardens, which were amazing. Then on the way back our crew again got creative and found some hunchback whales... so we got to see both species. Well structured and organizes tour with an truly excellent crew."
