We had a great time on this trip. All of the staff were fantastic, but we spent most of our time with Jennifer on the top deck. She was knowledgeable, funny, engaging, and a personable individual and we enjoyed the experience even though we didn’t see any whales! We hope to visit again in the next year and plan to come back here and use our no whale ticket which we really appreciated.

Crew went above and beyond to ensure we saw whales. Well organized, knowledgeable and dedicated staff. To top it off it was beautiful day and calm waters. A wonderful experience.

Although the lone humpback we spotted had other plans then spending time with us, our time with Capt. Joe, Lilly and Lauren was well spent. Their excitement at spotting the first humpback of the season was contagious and left us with a better understanding of these wild creatures. It was a beautiful afternoon with the Olympic Mountains rising from the mists, the sun on the water and the noisy smelly crowd soaking up the sun at Race Rocks.

Lovely day!
Blue sky! Sunshine...
Great Captain!
Wildlife was at the Rendez Vous!
We saw whales, seals, sea Lions, eagles, Faucon Pellerin towards America and get back to the north.
I loved the Bashing waves on the return. The wind was blowing and the Zodiac was bumping. I loved it and have a lot of fun. It is not predictable how elements would react.
The Captain did a great job bringing us back safe and sound. Thank you, Mark!
Have Fun!

Hi Awa,

Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience with us. It sounds like you had a lot of fun on the Zodiac. Definitely one of our most adrenaline-pumping adventures! So happy to hear that you got to observe whales and a variety of marine life including Faucon pèlerin! It's always exciting for us to hear what our guests have seen on the water. Thank you also for your kind feedback about our Captain Mark.

We can't wait for you to join us on another tour in future the next time you are in Vancouver, Victoria or Telegraph Cove!

Joe and Lili were great. They were knowledgeable and tried really hard to find us whales. Alas we had no luck.... however; the tour group gives a guarantee so we have a credit to come back! The boat was nice and gloves, toques and blankets were provided to keep warm.

Highly recommend this tour group and our guides!

Hi there,

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us. We are sorry that you were not successful in seeing whales that day. 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 whales.

We do stand by our whale sighting guarantee and encourage our guests to join us on another tour in future at no cost, in the instance that no whales have been sighted. The experience of our guests is really important to us so please do contact us to arrange another booking.

Thank you so much for your recommendation and for you kind feedback about Joe and Lily! We hope to see you soon!
