It was a great tour, wonderful close experience with one family of whales, great weather and fantastic crew. Wilma was our host and she did an amazing job, so passionate, devoted and honest. Well done and congratulations!

Hello,

Thank you for taking the time to leave us an awesome review. We really appreciate this!

How wonderful that you got to see a pod of whales and that the weather was behaving for you too :) Wilma certainly is a mine of information and enjoys sharing this extensive knowledge with our guests,

We hope you will join us on another tour in future the next time you are in Vancouver!

Aurora, was our tour guide and did a phenomenal job!! We got to see 4 killer whales! The view during the entire ride to see the whales was breath-taking.

This was an amazing trip and experience. We booked the half day trip. Crew were friendly and attentive. Becky and Aurora were so knowledgeable, clearly subject matter experts in their field and passionate about marine conservation.
We were very fortunate to come across a pod of three killer whales. A truly unforgettable experience.
If you are able to, book this for the first part of your stay in Vancouver so that if no whales are seen you can go out again free of charge.

Just come back from a fantastic time of whale watching!! Wilma (the guide on upper deck! ) was full of information and stories and very knowledgable!!! I’m sure the the lower deck staff were just as good as they all came across as professional!! The safety information was well presented and unless you wasn’t listening you knew what to do in an emergency.
The sightings of a pod of Orcas couldn’t have been better !! Unfortunately I missed the male orca (T77?) who was away from the female group (with calves)!
The pilot (Aaron ) impressed me with his reaction to a leisure boat that was speeding right in front of a pod of whales which can scare them /hurt them and make them scatter !! He blew his horn but the silly person behind the wheel of the boat carried on !! Wilma said he could be fined !! I hope they get them but anyway if you are in Vancouver I sincerely recommend The Prince of Whales touring company

Thank you

Hello Les and Tracy,

Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience with us. We really appreciate it and are so happy that you enjoyed your adventure with us! It sounds like you had a lovely time out on the water with the whales :)

Unfortunately, there are instances like this that happen and our goal is to educate as many people as possible on how to be whale wise and to take precaution as we share a home with these beautiful mammals.

We are glad to hear that you got the opportunity to learn a lot from our crew and we would be delighted to have you join us on another tour in future :)
