  • everyone was friendly helpful and knowledgeable

  • Fantastic trip. Saw a pod of Orca Whales including a cow and calf. The knowledge of the crew was impressive and interesting. Definitely a trip worth taking. Advise to take a good camera to benefit from the experience it outstanding.

  • Seeing wildlife is always problematic. Not the tour operators fault but all we saw were a few humpbacks from quite a distance away. Our aim was to see black and whites orcas but unfortunately none seen on this zodiac outing. we were in Victoria late September so probably just too late in the season.

  • What a day! The girls that checked us in were very helpful and pleasant. They even reminded us to get food to take on the trip! Cody explained the safety rules and was very helpful telling us where we were along the trip and explained what wildlife we were seeing. We got to see harbor seals, sea lions, huge walrus. The we happened upon 6 Orca whales going up the coastline! The were swimming along and eventually went into the middle of the ocean and had a feeding frenzy! It was amazing! The we saw Mama Humpback whale and her baby! The sun was shining and it was a Beautiful day! I would definitely recommend The Prince of Whales! The boat had seats inside and out and you were somewhat protected from the environment.

  • Didn't see any whales and while crew were fantastic couldn't help be disappointed - didn't have the option of a repeat visit

  • Great experience. Friendly and knowledgeable crew.

  • Successful trip. Caught up with a family of orcas.

  • Well, the crew was great!! It took 2 hours to get to where the whales were for 25 min.of viewing and 2 hours back . Not a great experience.
