    This tour was awesome. Small group of 12 in a comfy zodiac. Not squishy at all! I'm 5'11" and had plenty of room. The 3 hour length was just right and Skipper Sara was really knowledgable about where to find sea life and shared interesting info during sightings. Dont worry the price wont give you as good an experience (I was at first after researching other company rates). They simply gave a competitive rate and gave us a stellar experience. Zodiac whale watching is the way to go if you want a real and up close ocean feel! Highly recommend.

This experience just made our Victoria trip. I mean we saw humpback whales, killer whales and sea lions, the trifecta of pacific. Special shout out to Sara who has a great eye for these majestic creatures and does her job with so much passion. Couldn’t have asked for a better experience and guide!
