Seeing whales in their natural environment had been on my bucket list for years. I did a great deal of research over which company to use when we arrived in Vancouver. Wild Whales stood out. We were not disappointed! As with any excursion of this nature, there is no guarantee of what you will see as they are wild animals.... More

Everything about our tour was great! Our guide, Ashley, was so friendly and knowledgeable! So glad that she made an effort to talk to everybody on the tour one-on-one and answer questions. We were fortunate enough to see a pod of Southern resident Orcas, harbour seals, sea lion, eagles, etc. We really appreciated the company's policy of not disturbing the... More

Great value for money. Went with my mum and husband. Saw 2 types of orca and a hump back. Knowledgeable staff who were sensitive and informed about the environmental issues surrounding whales in the wild. Out on the water for more than 7 hours but the day flew by. Just excellent!!

We couldn't recommend this trip highly enough. We were fortunate enough to see two types of Orca/killer whales and also a humpback whale at the end. In fact we stayed out for a full 7 hours so we could see these incredible sights. Our guide Ashley and captain Denis not only made sure we were safe and comfortable, they were... More

Fantastic whale watch. Humpback just out of Vancouver then a pod of transient Orca in the Gulf Islands. Captain Rodrigo and guide Brianna were both brilliant - knowledgeable and helpful. And the exposure suits made us feel like astronauts, but kept us (largely) dry from the spray. I'd echo what others have said: that it is a long old haul... More

I would highly recommend this for any Traveler coming to Vancouver. It was 7 hours on the ocean put it was amazing, our Captain was awesome and Katheryn our Naturalist was very informative and the whales were amazing. It is definitively worth it's value and the day was amazing. Thank-you again to Wild Whales for the best time I have... More

We had used this company on a previous visit to Vancouver 6 years ago and had a great experience so had no hesitation in using them for a second time. Our naturalist, Mike, and our captain, Dennis, were both excellent, giving us exactly the right amount of information and finding the best areas to see the wildlife. We had an... More

The whales were a long way from Vancouver on the day we went which resulted in a 3 hour trip to get out to the pod. Having said that, we were informed and entertained on the way, spotted a bald eagle, and traveled at a fair old speed. To the credit of Wild Wales of Vancouver, they didn't cut the... More

I highly recommend booking with Wild Whales Vancouver. The price is affordable and you get a good value for the cost of the trip. The guides are extremely personable and knowledgeable, and are very adept at pointing out all the wild life you see on the trip. They are also very good at finding the whales - we saw 3... More
