    All of the staff from reservation to adventure were professional and wonderful. We had Sebastian on our boat and he was very knowledgeable about the sealife and answered all our questions. He is a gem. We saw Orca, harbor seals, stellar sea lions, and bald eagles. Amazing.

    What an amazing tour with Vancouver Whale Watch !!!!!! These guys are professionals. The entire process (online booking, check in and sailing) was smooth, fun, well organized and very enjoyable. We watched a Humpback Whale, 2 different pods of orcas (even a very rare backflip from Rocky, the largest member of one of the families!!!) and a big group of Sea Lions and Harbor Seals at the stop by Seal Island. Riding with our guide Sebastian and Captain Bryan was an unforgettable, learning experience. An extra bonus is the fact that, if you tour with this company, your trip will start and end in the charming fishing town of Steveston, a mandatory place to visit when travelling to Vancouver. Thanks for everything, our expectations were exceeded. Definitely, we will be back.

    Seeing the orcas was the best the crew had us on them quite fast and we were able to observe them for a long time. They even came close to us and we were able to get some great pics. We also saw Sea lions and harbor seals.

    We had an amazing afternoon with Scott and Ken. We saw a pod of 8 whales, a humpback, bald eagle, seals and sea lions. Ken was fantastic at sharing information and answering all the questions, Scott was the most amazing skipper. They both made us laugh and went out of their way to ensure we had a good time. We will definitely be back!! Would totally recommend to anybody wanting a great experience. Thank you again!!

    Overall, it’s a nice experience, however, the cost odd not justifiable. The only whales were saw where killer whales, it was not a profound experience. The snack; a granola bar A reasonable price for this experience is 70$ It is not worth 150-170$ for sure

    Our family of six went out today with Yasin as our guide. We had an amazing time and learned so much! My kids enjoyed every minute even the one who started out feeling sea sick. Yasin was so helpful and attentive and within a short time he got his sea legs and had a great time. I would definitely recommend this tour on the zodiacs to everyone. It was a smooth ride and yet you still felt close to the water and wildlife. We saw, a humpback whale, many many orcas, seals, sea lions and a bald eagle. Thank you so much for such a great time!

    WHAT AN EXPIERIENCE!!! Everything worked out well. Pickup close to our hotel in downtown. Great captain and even a better guide/naturalist. They really had fun with what they are doing. After looking for whales for about an hour we found two whales. They were very interested in the boad and came close (1m away from the boat). After that we drove to the island and saw some sealions, eagles,… Absolutely reccomendable.

    We have been whale watching with Vancouver Whale Watch for years. It is always an amazing tour. If the whales can’t be found the scenery and other wild life is amazing. The staff on board are very knowledgeable and safety is always their first concern, for wild life and humans.
