I am glad to say that my first time whale watching went spectacularly thanks to the lovely Prince of Whales crew. Had extremely informative guides (Wilma and James) that were just as excited to see the whales as we were. They were also very kind and welcoming. Next time I come to Vancouver, I will definitely consider whale watching again with the Prince of Whales crew.
