Hello,

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us a great review. We really appreciate this and are so happy that you got to see many whales. We are sorry to hear that you didn't see any Orcas on your trip. Every tour is unpredictable and different in terms of what can be spotted. Just like whale watching anywhere in this region, or the world, sometimes we aren't lucky enough to see the Orcas!

Thank you for your great feedback about our Naturalist Wilma. We are so pleased that you were able to learn a lot from her. We hope to have you join us on another tour the next time you are in Telegraph Cove :)

We went on August 8, 2019 and had a great time. We were warned that the seas could be rough and were given the offer to bow out. We went ahead and we sure are glad we did. The scenery is unbelievable and the staff was friendly, enthusiastic and informative. We were mostly with Craig and he was fantastic! We saw a mother humpback and her calf, a pod of transient orcas, seals and a bald eagle. Best of all, the seas calmed down and we had a calm beautiful day! We would definitely go again.

We had a fantastic half-day voyage with Prince of Whales. We were especially fortunate to see several humpbacks and a family of orcas. The naturalists on board were extremely knowledgeable. Dress warmly, even on a warm day.

A good trip where 3 of our party thoroughly enjoyed the whole trip both scenery and whale spotting. Whilst I was somewhat underwhelmed as in the 3.5 hours on the water, total time seeing a part of a whale was about 5-10 minutes. There were no whales jumping out of the water. The Prince if Whales guys wer3 great and tried their absolute best to locate the Whales which they did. It was as it said on the tin.

Hello,

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We really appreciate this and are pleased that you enjoyed your whale watching adventure with us. Every tour is unpredictable and different in terms of what can be spotted. It can be difficult to determine how much of the whales we will see.

Thank you also for your wonderful comments about our staff members. They work very hard to ensure our guests receive an enjoyable and educational tour with us. We would love to have you join us on another tour in future!
