We want to share with you our amazing experience with BC Whale Tours.
We moved to Victoria the second weekend of September. We have two kids, age 2 ½ and 5. They both love whales and it was my son’s dream to see Orca’s in the wild.
We went out on the Sunday and had a fabulous time. The boat was modern and had heated seating inside as well as seats outside. They only book limited amounts of people so that you have a seat inside and outside that you can switch between.
The owner of the company was the Captain and he was very nice and informative.
It is amazing that the Captains of the different whale tour ships, although competitors, work as a team to make sure that everyone on the different tours gets to see the whales. They share information and work as a team.
When we first went up the coast we saw a Black Bear. We also saw lots of Sea Lions.
We also saw a humpback whale. Unfortunately, that day there were no Orca’s around.
As BC Whale Tours guarantees that you will see Orca’s, they stamped our tickets, which allowed us to return another day to go on the tour again for free.
We just went on the tour again yesterday, and we say so many Orca’s. The Captain really made it special for us as he just stopped the boat, making it seem like we were waiting for Orca’s, however, he knew one was just there and almost right away the Orca jumped out of the water, to all of our surprise and amazement.
BC Whale Tours goes above and beyond. They really want you to connect with the ocean and the whales and have a wonderful time. There are other tours available, but a lot of the other boats are just uncovered (so you will be cold and wet) or they are covered but they pack in as many people as they can.
