    The whole experience was amazing. The boat was huge, plenty of seating everywhere, plenty of toom to walk about, and plenty of areas to view. Staff were friendly, helpful and informative at every point. We saw 2 humpback whales, in 2 separate locations, seals, bald eagles and cormorants. It was a sunny day, but dress warm as it gets very windy. The company and its team are conservationalists, so everything is done to be mindful of all aquatic life and its environment. Well worth the experience

    We absolutely loved this day out whale watching. Our boat was run by the Prince of Whales on the Salish Sea Dream. It was so much better than expected! There was plenty of space on the boat with various indoor and outdoor seating available. Our daughter even had a little chat with the captain which was a very memorable experience. We saw killer whales VERY up close (they said we were lucky, but you can also see they are skilled at finding where they are and getting close). The team on board is very friendly and can speak to you about animal conservation etc. They even send you photos afterwards taken by the team with a high powered camera lense. Bring a jacket, even in summer because the wind is chilly out on the water.

    A day trip to look for Whales. Picked up from our Hotel in Vancouver the day was excellent. We had an excellent guide on a small boat with a high power engine.A safe environment helped ease our anxiety. We saw a Bald Eagle,Cormorants numerous Pilot or Killer Whales and a Humpback whale who noncalently flipped his tale to give us a real specatacle. Lots of options with this company to ensure you get the best deal to suit you. Really good.

    Really good trip, our crew were great and worked hard to make sure we did see some whales. We saw humpback whales on our trip, did try to find orcas but they were elusive and didn’t manage to see any. Also saw sea lions, bald eagles and a sea otter. Would definitely recommend.

    Transportation from Hotel to marina was punctual. Tour was wonderful we saw a momma humpback and baby. Crew was knowledgeable and boat was in good condition, double decker with 2 levels.

    Fantastic crew and afternoon searching for wildlife! Bald eagles, seals, sea lions and a grey whale! Awesome. The crew very knowledgeable about the wildlife and their easy way of sharing that knowledge with the passengers made this a memorable trip. Will definitely take this tour again!

    What an amazing experience and crew! We even saw humpbacks breaching!!! The crew was fantastic. They were very, very knowledgeable and helpful. It was one of the finest tours I have ever been on. The boat was in clean and well maintained condition and the captain well experienced in operation of the boat and in finding the whales. We spent over an hour circling and viewing a mother and baby humpback. WE WILL TAKE THIS TOUR AGAIN!
