    This was a long day but a very enjoyable day. The sights were great, Butchart Gardens was magnificent and touring the waterfront in Victoria was a delight, Had the gelato at the gardens which is not t be missed, ate at Millstones near the waterfront and that was excellent.

    Our guide/driver, Senan Magennis was a delight. He is very knowledgeable of the areas we went through, knew when to give us a break, and was just as pleasant as could be. Very careful driver as well.

    This tour gets 5 stars!

    Absolutely awesome crew, friendly, funny, knowledgeable, all you could ask for and more. Boat was very comfortable. Saw several whales, and many seals! Huge bonus for me was 200+ high quality photos shared as part of package.

    We saw whales but very far away. I think that out expectations were higher but the wildlife is unpredictable. Staff very friendly.

    I had a day to kill before getting on the cruise ship and this trip was perfect, actually my favorite part of the vacation. I booked tea service at Butchart through Open Table before I left and was glad I did. After the gardens our group of six women had time to walk through the lobby of the Empress Hotel, do some shopping and grab a Sangria before getting back on the plane for a smooth ride home. I sat in the front seat and the pilot allowed me to listen in on the tower traffic. Perfect.

    When we arrived at the meeting point (their office) we were told that their Boat was having mechanical problems. We were very sad about it but the team there were absolutely helpful and did everything they could to put us in another boat with another company the next day (of course charge free). I’m thankful for that.

  • This is my fourth time on an Eagle Wing Tours whale watching trip and I am always amazed at the beauty of our big blue backyard and its wildlife. This was also the first time whale watching for a friend visiting from Australia and he absolutely loved it. We were fortunate to catch a glimpse of some orcas, humpback whales, and lots of seals. Would definitely recommend Eagle Wing Tours to anyone, not only for the wealth of knowledge that the crew is able to provide, but also for all the great sustainability and environmentally friendly initiatives the company is doing!

    The bus had very little air conditioning and was hot on both the ride there and back

    The driver was very good but would not turn on the bus to cool it off so that made it even hotter he said he was “not allowed to let the bus idle even when it was that hot out and we sat on the bus for 10 min

    This is my third time doing whale watching and definitley the best experience. Just did the 3 hour whale watching tour. We saw a humpback whale which was fantastic. Our captain was great, so much interesting knowledge and very easy going. The boat itself was great fun, we had extremely choppy water and windy weather with some very high swells and it was so much fun on the boat, good adrenaline buzz. Would definitely recommend the zodiac for those who like open water and aren't afraid of getting wet.

    Wild ride on the zodiac boat. Encountering a pod of about 5 whales was surreal and sacred.
    I am so glad we went on the up close and personal RHIB vessel.
    💥One important piece of advice. No matter how hot the day, take the hat and gloves they offer!!
    It can drop up to 15 degrees on the Salish seas!
    I wanted an adventure that wasn’t tame and our Bearded Captain delivered!!!
    Well worth it!!

  • We had a great excursion with Orca Spirit. Initially we saw two humpbacks and then after a while our guide Jake said we were moving on to see something else. This turned out to be one, or maybe two pods of Biggs Killer Whales (a sub species of orca), about 6 or 7 animals in total. What a fantastic experience! We were almost to the coast of the US where we saw them, so the crew had taken us a long way, which I appreciate very much. Jake was very knowledgeable and also very entertaining with his jokes! I would highly recommend Orca Spirit for your whale watching experience.

    We have been to botanical gardens all over the world, and Butchart ranks right up there with the best. Definitely most colorful. We have a splendid afternoon there

    The sunset whale watching tour was a highlight for our family. The catamaran was a fun ride out to see the whales and seeing Orcas was a first for all of us. The crew did a great job and were very informative and answered all the questions posed to them. The sunset on the way back was spectacular and we could not have asked for a better tour.
