We loved this trip! The crew worked hard to ensure we saw multiple whales throughout and countless seals and sea lions. The sunset tour was well worth the wait. The boat was great too- good views from everywhere, and ability to warm up inside as needed. Complimemtary pictures were incredible too! Will never forget it.

Truly magical
Tony_S
, Aug 2022
The crew were almost as entertaining as seeing the whales . They were great at explaining where we were , what we were seeing and sharing amazing whale facts. The trip I was on had several children who asked a ton of questions , the crew went above and beyond answering every one . Those children could now grow up to be our next marine biologist because of how interesting the trip was. We found a family of 4 killer whales within 20 minutes of heading out. We spent an hour watching them . No words to describe how magical that was !!!

Tony_S, Thanks so much for the rave review! We are so glad that you had such a great time and learned a lot! We aim to inspire to protect these magnificent creatures and their natural habitat. Hopefully those children hold onto that memory and learn more about marine wildlife in the future. It sounds like you had some amazing sightings! 'Magical' is a great word to describe the feeling of being so close to these immense creatures. Thanks again for sailing with us, we hope to see you again some day soon!

It was just amazing ! Words can’t do the justice to this experience. We pretty much saw about a dozen whales including their babies. I went with my family and everybody had so much fun. The staff was very proactive , informative and super helpful. I would recommend whale watching with prince of whales in Victoria for sure.

It was an awesome experience! The whole crew was fantastic and very informative. Scott and Coco enjoyed what they do and their enthusiasm was contiguous! We saw several humpback whales, sea lions and seals. We saw a whale slap his fluke (tail) multiple times! Coco toke pictures the whole time and the pictures are available to us for no extra cost! No need to take pictures yourself, you could just enjoy the experience! Would highly recommend this trip to anybody!

Unforgettable sunset 😊
Myroslava_G
, Aug 2021
It was interesting and fun. We learned so much about whales and we saw them!!! A bit far, but it was so exciting, when we were noticing two brothers whales come out of water and be playful. Sea lions are so fun to watch. Some of them are lazy and just lay on rocks and some are pushing each other into water 😊 Sunset was unforgettable!!! Crew was so friendly and knowledgeable about sea mammals. Thank you for this wonderful experience!

Die Guides und der Kapitän sind super zuvorkommend. An Land waren 30 Grad auf dem Wasser gefühlte 10 also lange Hosen und Pullover nicht vergessen. Wenn man vorne steht wäre eine Regenjacke auch günstig. Kakao war im Preis enthalten

Heike_G, Vielen Dank für Ihre Bewertung! Es wird auf jeden Fall empfohlen, Schichten zu tragen, da es draußen auf dem Wasser kälter ist. Wir hoffen, dass der Kakao Ihnen geholfen hat, warm zu bleiben! Wir hoffen, Sie in Zukunft für eine weitere großartige Tour wiederzusehen.
