It was a wonderful experience travelling with Wild Wales Vancouver! We spotted numerous orcas after finding J-Pod and our guides were knowledgable and loved sharing interesting tidbits of information with us!

We enjoyed our trip but can think of ways it could have been much better. First of all, anyone reading this, prepare yourself for a bumpy ride and bring along Dramamine. We brought some for ourselves and thankfully did not get sick but we did not see anything mentioned about it in the "what to bring" section of the website.... More

This was an amazing experience. We overshot the orcas as they were in the Burrrard Inlet that day but once they had been located we immediately returned and watched them swim and play for a couple of hours. We were on the water for 6 hours and it was great. Our guide Ashley was very knowledgeable and gave us a... More

This company were well organised and the staff well informed and friendly. We were provided with suits which we didn't need to keep us dry as it as a calm day but were useful in preventing us getting cold when the boat was travelling at speed. We saw a humpback whale, some seals, eagles on the way to where we... More

Plan for a long day. We were out for 6 hours and it is mostly a boat ride. Staff was friendly and we did see whales so all the kids were happy. In addition to the Whales we saw Eagles and Seals. Overall it was good day just a little long for us

First let me start by saying that I've been on Whale excursions before in my unending search to see these amazing creatures, and up until recently had never seen one. My cousin and I booked a morning tour with Wild Whales Vancouver just a couple of weeks ago in early June. They were very thorough with their email instructions and... More

Great review! Thanks so much! I'm glad, after all your attempts in other places, we could finally show you some whales. It's a pretty special experience to see killer whales in their natural habitat and to see such a large group too! Some days the Strait of Georgia can be a bit choppy to cross and other days it's flat... More

Today couldn't have been any better. Starting with a passionate Kathryn, our guide, and a great captain, Roman. The whales, humpback and orca were more than I could ever imagined. Also observed, sea lions, seals, bald eagles, porpoises, and numerous other birds. Having a clear day allowed Mt Baker to be our backdrop in a lot of photos. Thank you... More

Wild Whales guarantees whale sightings. They delivered today, showing us mammal eating Killer Whales (Orcas) within 30 minutes of leaving the dock. For the next 4 hours we followed the whales and then took a tour around several islands, spotting deals and bald eagles. We were thrilled with the experience. Each boat has a naturalist/tour guide in addition to a... More

Hey John! Thanks so much for your review. We have had some really cool encounters lately and they have also been really close! It sounds like you guys went up into Howe Sound, which is an incredible fjord land so I'm glad you enjoyed it. Thanks again for the fantastic review! More

Our guide indicated that this was a spectacular trip and that most groups did not have the opportunity to see three different whale groups. We also saw seals, bald eagles, and porpoise. We would definitely go back on this adventure when back in Vancouver! Our recommendation is to take the "closed" boat and not have to deal with water splashing... More
