A really amazing afternoon (30th Aug) watching Orcas on a beautiful day. We spent a good hour and a half watching a large number of whales with the guides showing their knowledge of these animals, making the experience even more enjoyable, I particularly wanted to post a review as we had previously been out with Vancouver Whale Watch some 7...

With so many whales sighted this year we decided to do a local experience and chose Vancouver Whale Watching. Great company, Fantastic Zodiacs. Lots of wildlife spotted and so many orcas in the area. It is a long trip 3 to 5 hours so be prepared but the day was beautiful and the sights are amazing .

We had an amazing day on the Vancouver Whale watching tour. A shuttle bus picked us up very promptly in downtown Vancouver to take us to Steveston, BC where the boat left from. From start to finish, it was an amazing experience for my partner and I. The staff working here, were so welcoming and informative on the whales we... More

We participated in the Vancouver Whale Watch tour last Saturday. We were most impressed with the organization and, in particular, the Office Manager, Tammy. She even called me promptly after I left a message on their website. I asked Tammy if we could participate for free as we were on the same tour 8 years ago and, at that time,... More

My wife and I went on a Saturday on the lightship zodiac. It was so much fun we saw a couple of orcas as well as other wildlife. The zodiac was so much fun only held a few people instead of a whole group like the bigger ship. Totally recommend the lightship and Vancouver whale watch. The crew was very... More

Today we went whale watching with this company. I can only wax lyrical about our experience. From the shuttle pick up close to where we were staying - Trevor, the driver, was a welcoming and knowledgable guy, who made the trip there an event in itself - to the staff in the office, and then the trip itself - all...

This great company did everything they could to make the passengers happy. They were friendly and knowledgeable from the start. On my first trip with them we saw some orca's, but the guides were not happy and gave everyone vouchers for a free second trip. On the second trip they offered an upgrade to a more private boat. They provided... More

The team has allot of experience and know how to find the best sightings while at the same time completely respecting the Whales.... More

We were lucky to board the last lightship I of the season. We saw bald eagles, cormorants, harbor seals, california sea lions and orcas. I have took the EXPRESS boat last year and I must say that it's much more fun to take the lightship. It is much faster and it bumps when there are waves, and some time the... More

Vancouver Whale Watch guaranteed a sighting, and a sighting we did! We saw a whole pod of Orcas ("J" or "L", I forget which pod) while we were out. There were about (25) of them in total. They were pretty tame this particular day, just swimming, no breaches, but they were still very impressive! Our guide was great! She was... More
