What people are saying about Vancouver Island

Great whale watching experience in Victoria BC

We went on this tour in October and saw a number of humpback whales and large numbers of two types of Sea Lions. The naturalist taking the tour, Leah, was knowledgeable, was able to identify the individual whales that we saw, and provided information about the all the different species including the birds we could see. Above all she was friendly, approachable and clearly loved her job and enjoyed sharing her knowledge of the wildlife with us. The type of boat (covered with an upstairs viewing platform) was perfect for this type of activity and guests could shelter from the elements as we moved from spot to spot.

Alex is the BEST guide I have experienced EVER!

I have gone on many tours with Greyline, but never have I had a guide as intelligent, articulate, or entertaining as Alex. He never stopped giving us interesting information about whatever was just outside the window. His vocabulary and diction (including word choice) was far above any other guide we encountered on our cruise/land trip. My only criticism is that I wish we had had more time to spend in Butchart Gardens.

Fantastic experience- one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been!

Everything about the tour itself was great. Our guide was knowledgeable as well as personable. The bus was clean and comfortable. My only criticism is that the transport for picking up at the hotel to meet the tour bus was very poorly organized and confusing. Our driver did not have explicit information on passengers nor any contact info which caused confusion and delay.

Amazing Tour - Exceeded all our expectations

We took the afternoon Tour and saw an amazing number of animals: eagles, seals, otters, sea lions and we were lucky to see a lot of whales. High speed boat, quit comfortabele, we were with only 8 people. Our guide was a marine biologist with lots of expertise who Made our Tour even more enjoyable. I highly recommand this Tour, it is truly unforgettable!!

Comfortable boat, knowledgeable staff, overall great experience!

Comfortable boat with options to sit inside and out, not overly booked so enough room to move around. The staff was pleasant and informing, clearly quite knowledgeable. Because it is a bigger boat, you get less close to the animals than in e.g. a zodiac. But bring a good camera or binoculars and you'll still get to see as much as the others :-)
