Our guide Rush was amazing. We saw 3 different groups of transient orcas and lots of seals. It was an incredible trip and worth every penny!

Excellent trip for a family with teenagers who enjoy a little excitement

We had such a fun time. The zodiak ride itself was a blast and exciting for my teenage sons. As an added bonus, we witnessed a female humpback and her calf feeding and surfacing. The guide was excellent! Very adept at handling the boat and was knowledgeable and respectful of the animals in their natural habitat.

My dad and I did this tour as a fathers day gift and we both loved it! Saw lots of marine life and our guide made sure we all could get a good view of whatever we were looking at. It was a really fun day out on the water, and I'd say its a must-do event while in Victoria!

Great experience. Although we did not see any whales, this company offers as many free excursions as it takes to see whales. We saw porpoises, sea lions, bald eagles, and the beautiful harbor area.

The only reason I didn't give this a 5 Star is not because of the excursion itself but the weather. It rained and the suits are NOT waterproof, I was soaked to my jeans, etc. We only caught glimpses of several whales and wished we would have seen more.

Great day on the water!

Very well run operation from start to finish. Beautiful day on the water in a zodiac boat from which we saw lots of orcas! Despite looking funny, the suits and hats/gloves kept us quite warm. The guide was great, learned lots about the orcas. Overall a fun expeience, only wish we could have gotten a little closer to the whales, but I think the distance kept is for the safety of the whales.
