This had to be one of the coolest experiences of my life. We booked the tour a month before coming to Victoria based on the excellent reviews. My mom, aunty, grandma, cousin and myself had the pleasure of taking the Sunset Whale Watching tour and it did not disappoint. The extremely knowledgeable and passionate staff on board made our experience that much better. We saw Orcas, Humpbacks, and Porpoises. Along with seals, and other marine mammals. The time we got to spend with the whales is something I will never forget, and our brilliant guides (Seanie & Brittany) shared so much information and passion for these animals. The captain Bill made for a smooth enjoyable ride and we just had the best time ever. You will not regret this experience. We can't wait to come back. Having individual conversations with both Brittany and Seanie really taught me what wonderful people you have working for your company. They are smart, passionate and fun.

Another bonus was being able to attend the Orca exhibit at the Royal British Columbia Museum. It really tied everything together and now we have a new appreciation for the beautiful whales and what we can do to protect them. This trip sparked a passion in my heart to learn more about whales and what an incredible species they are.

Keep doing the amazing work!

Magical Evening. Unforgettable.
Sep. 2021
What a magical evening. The water was calm, the boat was really nice, big windows but of course the best part was the whales. On the way out we seen two killer whale fins and honestly I thought that would be it BUT we went on to see two families of killer whales together. 8 . At one point the captain, Bill, turned off the engines and we just sat in the quiet and the whales played around us. I’ll never forget it. The sound of them around us. It was wonderful. Then on the way back we saw two humpback whales kelping. Rolling in the kelp to get the barnickles off them. We learnt so much about the local whales and whales in general. Britany and Seanie were very knowledgable. It gets chilly out there so wear warm clothes. Mind you, you can always grab a hot drink and sit inside.

Amazing whale watching experience
Sep. 2021
We took this excursion and couldn’t be happier with our experience. We saw sea lions, seals, an otter and a small pod (grandmother and grandson were hunting together) of transient killer whales.
The crew which consisted of Captain Bill, First Mate Joe, Brytini, and Seanie. This crew were so knowledgeable and shared a lot of very interesting knowledge with us. The boat is very clean and the crew offered coffee, water or hot chocolate.
We would recommend wearing layers of clothing and even consider bringing a hat as it gets very cold out on the ocean if you’re sitting outside and not sheltered.
Due to Covid restrictions they requested we continue to wear out masks unless you were actively eating/drinking. Thank you for keeping everyone’s safety in the forefront.
This was truly an amazing experience and we fully recommend you book with this tour company.

A definite must!
Sep. 2021
The crew (Tom, Joe, Austen, Brittni and Shannon) gave us a fantastic experience where we saw 6 humpback whales and many sea lions and seals. We didn’t get to see any orcas but the tour was so great, I came away with no regrets. The emphasis on conservation is important too. The crew were patient and very informative with all questions asked especially Shannon. It was great that pictures from the tour were sent to us so we could just enjoy the trip and not worry about missing anything.

Waste of money and time

Take some time to Whale watch!
Great experience. Staff were friendly, outgoing and knowledgeable, professional and on top of the safety and covid protocols. We felt safe and were able to fully enjoy the whale-watching. Bryttni was in our part of the catamaran and was excellent at providing information, explanations, stories - made the experience exceptional. She gets full marks! Also experienced interaction with Seanie and Jennifer and both were also knowledgable, enthusiastic and fun! Highly recommend this experience!
We saw two Orcas and a Humpback whale as well as Sea Lions and seals.

Must Do in Victoria!
Aug. 2021
Great Experience! We did the sunset tour, and the views were incredible. It took us a bit of time to locate the whales, but we did end up seeing and following alongside a group of humpback whales. Next time we would try doing the afternoon tour to see if we can see some different types of whales. Would definitely recommend Prince of Whales! Friendly staff, really nice boat.
