  • 1. Whale Watching Tour, Victoria, BC, Canada

    We just returned from a wonderful afternoon on the water with the LEGENDARY Capt. Ron of SeaKing Whale Watching Tours. He was friendly, knowledgeable, and clearly loves his work. He was born and raised in this city and has been on the water since childhood. He clearly respects and loves the orcas, and knows them by sight and name. I loved when he spotted a very old orca female named Granny (who was born in 1911!!)---and said "every year that I see her now is a bonus". He recognizes every member of the pods and seems to consider them friends. I promise he will show you a wonderful time on his comfy boat, and you will be helping the "little guy" rather than some conglomerate with multiple boats and big advertising budgets. If you want to see the local waters with a local guide, Ron's the MAN.
