Crew were all very passionate about us having a great experience. Weather was cold and rainy to start, and they did everything in their power to keep everyone comfortable. Went the extra mile to try to get us to see whales - with success! It was literally a dream come true for me. If I ever have the opportunity to visit the area again, I'd definitely sign up with them for another tour. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!

We were meet by Olivia, who was very friendly and helpful giving us info and taking us to the boat. Erin the skipper welcomed everyone and guided us through a fantastic time out on the water. Rebecca kept us supplied with tea, coffee, hot chocolate, etc. Wilma, our marine biologist was amazing. She had great knowledge and enthusiasm for not only the Orcas, which we found within 30mins of starting the tour, but for all the wildlife we saw in and out the water. I would recommend this trip to everyone.

I elected to go on the half day tour with Prince of Whales in early July 2019 and let me say, it was an adventure I will never forget. The crew on board for that day were Aaron, Wilma, Selena and Aurdra - and they were nothing short of amazing. The captain was especially incredible to have decided to take us to see an island of seals first, as to extend our whale watching time - a pod of 4 beautiful Orcas we were able to observe for an hour! On the top deck, Wilma was a fountain of knowledge, not only of whales, but other local wildlife. She volunteered information about the surrounding islands, local customs, indigenous culture and so much more! This was an unforgettable experience that I have thoroughly enjoyed, and possibly may be the best excursion I have ever been on.

When we went whale watching we saw humpback whales and killer whales. Both James and Amy, the naturalists on the boat, gave some great facts and insight into the animals we saw but also the areas that we travelled through to get to Victoria. It was, overall, an amazing trip!

We had a super experience aboard the Ocean Magic, in no small part due to the incredible crew! They were all so cheerful/friendly, and extremely knowledgeable. We really enjoyed learning from them! One of the coolest parts was being able to identify the humpback whale by its tail. We also so appreciated the captain. He was super friendly as well, and navigated us to a buoy full of sea lions in a very thick fog. This was so awesome!!!
