We really enjoyed our trip on the high seas with POW. Blessed with a sunny day in January, we were taken all the way down to Sooke. We saw lots of marine mammals and fantastic scenery. We’ll be back for sure!

Thank you for your review! We have been truly blessed to have such a mild and spectacular winter, and we are so glad you were able to join us on a January tour. Winter whale watching can be more varied due to weather or wildlife viewing conditions - but typically there are far fewer boats on the water (pleasure crafts and working vessels), so it makes for a much more personalized experience.

We really appreciate you taking the time to share your experience with us and we can't wait for you to join us again the next time you are in Vancouver or Victoria!

This was my third trip with Prince of Whales & once again we had an amazing time. I visit Victoria over the Xmas holidays every year & its alaways a highlight.
Jasper took us out on the zodiac & after maybe half an hour spotted humpbacks which where feeding. They keep surfacing every few moments so got to see lots of them. We then headed back along the coast where he showed us some little bays, the scenery was amazing we even spotted 2 bald eagles. Just as we headed back Jasper had a call to say Orcas had been spotted on the other direction so off we went. Once we found them there was a pod of maybe 20 which where heading back towards the harbour so we got cruse along with them.
Jaspers knowledge was great & really informative he’s an amazing asset to the team
See you again next year!

I havent actually gone a tour , but they saved the life of a friend that was trying to save another kayaker.
That alone gets them five stars.
I have heard great thing about their tours.
Strongly recommend.

Thank you so much for sharing this story wcresponder. Our captains and crew are sometimes first on scene of a rescue, and trained on how to handle these situations - all of our on the water employees are trained and certified in Marine First Aid and in Marine Emergency Duties.

We would love to have you join us on the water at some point so you can experience a tour for yourself, and see why our team at Prince of Whales love what they do.

We saw an amazing sight a seal eating an octopus on the high seas! The mist around the mountains was exhilarating. What a way to celebrate a 20th birthday!
