Staff were super knowledgeable, accommodating (for a surprise engagement!) and friendly. Our guide answered any and all questions, was willing to take pictures for everyone and the crew supplied light snacks and water for everyone on board! The tour was beautiful, and we saw 6 humpback whales along with some sea lions, bald eagles and sand pipers! 10/10 would recommend. It was worth the commute from Van to do the tour with this very experienced company. Thank you Vancouver Whale Watch!!

Had an excellent time on the whale watching tour. Saw a group of humpback whales as well as sea lions and seals. The trip lasted about three hours which seemed like the perfect amount of time. The tour guide was friendly and informative and made a point of speaking to each guest individually. There is the option to leave a tip so make sure to have cash on you.We chose to pay the extra $15 for the shuttle service from Vancouver which I recommend. Our driver Levi was hilarious and made the ride to and from the whale watching tour extra special.
