Our guide Mark, found a pod of 5 Orcas and we were privileged to watch them hunting sea lions. Mark was knowledgeable about the whales and the ocean and very respectful of the other whale boats, as well as keeping to the 200m distance.

Great experience - one of the highlights of my trip to Victoria! The staff were very accommodating and professional. The company provided us with gear (survival suits, gloves, and hats) to make sure we were comfortable - I would recommend layering up with a sweater or light

Hello Christine R, Thank you for your awesome review and recommendation! We are thrilled that you enjoyed your time on the water with Mark. Great advice! It is always important to layer up as it gets about 10 degrees colder on the water than on land - the more layers the better :) Thank you for joining us and we would love to have you onboard again in the future!
