Great excursion

We were lucky enough to see both a pod of orcas and a humpback whale. The crew was very knowledgeable and added interesting facts and details about the whales we were seeing. We were in the covered boat, as it was a little drizzly and a bit cool. Glad we chose that option, only because of the weather. The flight over to Victoria and back was amazing. We had about 3 hours in Victoria which was perfect for a walk about and lunch.

Had a great trip by floatplane from Vancouver

Good whale watching and seal experience only criticism was the boat very full. The staff on the boat were very knowledgable regarding the sea life.Also trip allowed a good time in Victoria which was a bonus before flying back to Vancouver.

Sensational but you must check with Harbour Air

We had a great trip. The flight was amazing and the whale watching great. However the airline was not expecting us and were very good at fitting us in. Thank goodness we checked the day before our booking!

Nice and fast service on the flight there and back. We saw 23 orcas on our whale tour! And got a bunch of hours to walk around Victoria! Lovely day highly recommend :)

It is of course a matter of luck whether you actually see whales or not. We were lucky enough to see at least a single orca and a gray whale.
